      The short answer is yes, you can import a Swiss Army-type knife or any knife for that matter, except knives that have a concealed blade or sharp point. So no switchblades or beltbuckle blades, basically.

      You can read the official offense report here . Just scroll down to the letter “K” for knives. It basically says the same thing I just typed above.

      Is correct. As long as the swiss army knife does not have a button or spring attached to the blades or tools, then it should be fine.
      Here is a link to the Restriction of Offensive Weapons Act of 1959 for the UK on Wikipedia. Knife legislation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
