The production, sale and purchase of controlled knives in China require special permission as they are considered deadly weapons.

Chinese authorities are looking into another case involving FedEx, with the US shipping firm accused of “illegally accepting controlled knives to be sent to Hong Kong” from the mainland, the government-run Xinhua News Agency reported Tuesday, citing “relevant authorities.”

In addition, last month FedEx was accused of allowing a gun to be shipped from the US to China. On this occasion, FedEx said it discovered the gun and turned it over to Chinese authorities. An investigation has been launched into a case where FedEx is suspected of illegally handling a package containing controlled knives headed for China’s Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, authorities said Tuesday“An investigation has been launched into a case where FedEx is suspected of illegally handling a package containing controlled knives headed for China’s Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, authorities said Tuesday,” reported Xinhua.

China’s definition of controlled knives includes daggers with a tip angle of less than 60 degrees, three-edge scraping blades, spring-loaded knives and any knife with blade length of more than 220mm.
