Is there any law against carrying a knife?  Seems like it's the norm for Thai men to carry a knife (or a gun).

Probably only for farang!

Exactly, or words like thugs, scum of the earth come to mind :Never seen touts and bar doormen as aggressive as on Soi Bangla, not even on Patpong of the old days.

I like the Oz and kiwi method. Punch the crap out of each other , shake hands and grab some beers...NO knives!

A lot more knife attacks in Oz over the last couple of years unfortunately. Mostly younger generation folks

I dare say with the numbers reduced from tourists, the competition is hotting up. Good to see it wasn't a farang for a change 🙂

 

Ah, wasn't a farang so that's okay then. <sigh> 😢

Not easy to convince Thais that knives are not weapons as we know they use only fork and spoon for eating ....

Why not? I’m 67 and I’ve been carrying a knife of one type or another every day ever since I was in Cub Scouts more than half a century ago. Most of those years it’s been a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife. Or SAK. But once in a while a sheath hunting knife of the Bowie type blade, or my M5A1 Garand bayonet/knife with its matching M8A1 scabbard.

Pffff...!

It reminds me of a book of Upton Sinclair I am just reading ,"The Jungle".

Nothing has really changed in 100+ years. 

Same territory defence fightings for a couple of bahts, to be spent in go-go bars afterwards.

Shabby business, pathetic.

Good book i remember reading that back in OZ about 1967!

Just in case such a law exist: Do you think anybody would care?

I was in Phuket for Song Kran and stayed in a hotel close to Bangla Road. Other than the night of the 13th it was quiet. Where have all the tourists gone? I also saw many falangs hawking live sex shows and ping-pong shows. I didn't think that was legal.

I collect knives and have carried one for the past fifty years also, the "public perception" of knives has always been "strange" The vast majority of knife crime, the weapon of choice 99 out of a 100 times is a kitchen knife, especially in the UK, people don't go into a kitchen and get shocked by the presence of knives, yet they see a small folding knife and have a OMG moment - perception 🤔

Historically Asians don't allow knives at the table for a reason, you don't need two guesses as to why when you see observe the lack of mental stability here! :shock1:

A bayonet knife on your hip would give me an OMG too!
