I feel like a criminal whenever I go to my allotment with a knife for cutting off the tops of carrots or leeks or rhubarb. I've stopped taking a knife in my rucksack when I go out for the day and have food that needs cutting up.

Why is this idea important?

Ordinary citizens need to be reassured that a knife is a useful tool and carrying one should not lead to the presumption that you intend to use it as a weapon.
