Dutch Weapon Law

Dear international customer,

Here we give some very simplified tips concerning Dutch (weapon) law.

1.) Do not carry a sharp or blunt weapon in Amsterdam or any of our capitol cities. Size of the weapon does not matter! 

2.) Carry a valid, government issued ID with you (passport, drivers license, etc.) This is required for age verification when buying a knife or blunt weapon. It is also required for creditcard payments where a PIN number is not used. See also point 3.
3.) Police officers could do a body and bagage search at all times when in our capitol cities. A police officer may give you a financial punishment for not carrying an ID. See also point 4.

4.) All sharp objects and blunt impact weapons must be packaged properly when travelling through the capitol cities. Packaged: wrapped, sealed, boxed, or a combination. If not properly packaged, the weapon might be confiscated by the police and you will get a financial punishment. 

You may NOT have, buy or import the following weapons:

Stilletos, extendable batons, knuckledusters, tasers, pepperspray/CS gas, non detectable weapons, throwing knives / ninja stars, push daggers, catapults, airsoft / bb guns, butterfly knives, ballistic knives. 
See the visual summary below:

Other weapons may also be illegal, please refer to a police station or public information point.

Firearms have their own specific restrictions. Please consult a local firearms dealer for more information on buying and exporting firearms.

Final note: every item you see in our store is legal for ownership within the Netherlands. You may buy and export any of these items without restrictions. Air export in cargo luggage only, NOT in handluggage. Carry of our knives or other weapons is restricted. We recommend visitors to adhere the guidelines 1-4 as listed above at all times for safe transport of our products in the Netherlands.




Not all offensive weapons are controlled when imported. The following are classed as non-prohibited offensive weapons (and may thus be imported!!!):

  • lock knives - ie with blades which fold into the handle that can be opened manually and locked into place
  • crossbows - except for use by unsupervised persons under 17 years old
  • swords, bayonets, machetes - except for concealed swords or swordsticks
  • axes, hatchets, tomahawks
  • replica medieval weaponry such as spears, lances, pikes, maces, caltrops and halberds
  • blowpipes and blowguns for use by vets and registered animal handlers ONLY - souvenirs that are incapable of inflicting injury are also exempt

CAVEAT: If you are caught with any of the above without a legitimate reason and "are suspected of planning to use it violently", the weapon can be seized and the police will be alerted."


In order to prevent this we recommend for customers to transport blunt and edged weapons, regardless of size or purpose, in double sealed packaging.


Do NOT put weapons in your hand luggage: checked/cargo luggage ONLY!


The rules and recommendations mentioned in of this section are in no way binding legal advice. Please consider them as basic guidelines. When im/exporting our products it is your responsability to know the restrictions of the country that will be shipped to. Confiscated items will not be refunded.

Thanks for your order and enjoy your new product!

Hope to see you soon, online or just in store!
