(2) It is only possible to give "severity of injury"information in relation to knife offences by reference to injury descriptions at law. All murders or manslaughter (death), and assaults occasioning either actual or grievous bodily harm where a knife was involved have been included.

Information on weapon type by severity of injury has not been provided due to the low numbers in some categories and the potential identification of victims or offenders. However, it is possible to report that the most common type of knife used in knife offences during this period was foldable knives, followed by kitchen knives.
