Revised Japanese law cuts down on knives

MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan -- A revised Japanese law, which went into effect Jan. 5, prohibits the possession of double-edge knives with blades that exceed 5.5 centimeters or 2.16 inches. Although servicemembers may possess such blades on a U.S. installation, they should not take them when exiting the base. (U.S. Air Force photo by 2nd Lt. Jeff M. Nagan)
