For cruisers, you also have to remember that even any knife that can be opened with one hand may be illegal in other countries.

I worked on a project and we had a Danish film company following us around and sending video and newspaper stories off about us daily. They all carried knives you could open one-handed. It was really funny because if you asked for a knife, all of them would whip out a knife and open it. I finally asked about it and they said that these knives are illegal in Denmark so they ALWAYS carried them out of the country and hid them at home. They went on to explain that they bought them in the US at a gun show when they were doing a series of articles on guns in the US. Those guys were a hoot to work with.
