Knife Legality In Home

    This probably isn't the right topic but I couldn't find any others that suited it. What are the laws on owning a knife in your home? Not having a due reason to own one, but not carrying it around or anything. I see a lot of threads saying that you can't carry one unless hunting or fishing or having a reason to carry but none about having it in your home. It's a standard pretty big hunting knife.

    What are you hunting in your home? Large mice?

    You can keep knives in your home, after all your kitchen is full of them.
    Samurai swords and machete type knives are illegal as far as i know, obviously you can buy replicas in some shops but im not sure of the law around those.
    Obviously carrying any of this in public is a big no no, besides fishing obviously.
