Carrying a blade under three inches?

Right, so I've been looking into the laws on carrying blades in public, when I came across this: "Current UK knife law states that you need to have a 'lawful authority or reasonable excuse' to carry a non-locking folding knife with a blade longer than 3 inches in length" Now, from this I assume that you can carry a 2.5 inch folding knife with no good reason while you do your weekly shop?
Am I correct or sorrowfully misinformed?
Thanks a lot there, you're awesome.

Not necessarily... the easiest way to explain it is that there is a specific offence relating to knives in a public place, in the Crimnal Justice Act 1988:

It is an offence for any person, without lawful authority or good reason, to have with him in a public place, any article which has a blade or is sharply pointed except for a folding pocket-knife which has a cutting edge to its blade not exceeding 3 inches. [CJA 1988 section 139(1)]

Note that ALL lock knives are illegal in a public place, under this section. But you could fall foul of Section 1 of the Prevention of Crime Act 1953, as amended by the Offensive Weapons Act 1996, even just carrying a small folding knife, if you intended or adapted it for use as a weapon.

So, yes, you could could carry it "with no god reason", but not "with a bad reason"!
