Buck Alpha Crosslock availability or import


Active Member
I have purchased a Buck Alpha Crosslock PBS from America, as I can't find a grey one in the UK. I have been told I may have a problem with Uk customs!
Does anyone have some advice, or know where I can buy one in the UK?
i don't want a Camo or Orange one, which do sem to be available in the UK.

The only issue you may have is if it can be flicked open one handed.

It seems that at one point a member of staff at Mount Pleasant customs used to hold the blade and flick open the knife, warranting confiscation as a gravity knife. Looks like they would have a tough time doing that with the Alpha Crosslock.

didn't,t think it was illegal to sell or import single handed opening or assisted opening knives, only to carry them in a public place without good cause.
