From Mr Tim Wesson

Sir: It seems that the police are to melt down many hand-crafted, even antique blades in the name of "keeping knives off the streets". Can't they get a knife expert to look over them and donate worthy ones to the British Museum (for example); they could even sell them at auction, with reserve prices to keep out non-collectors, thus gaining some useful police funds.

Yours faithfully,

Tim Wesson
