Decoration and training purposes only (not throwing stars, they've been illegal since the 80's for future reference, the general term for a Japanese throwing, bladed article is Shuriken) And bladed weapons must be purchased by and for those over 18. And you will not be allowed to buy the knives without good reason, or through specialist martial suppliers, as training aids. You could have a look through Martial Arts magazines for the type of size and regulations allowed. That's where I got mine.

Just for comparison - here in New York State (USA), Shuriken are illegal, but knives are legal albeit with certain caveats. Here, spring-loaded/actuated knives, gravity knives, and throwing knives, are all illegal, whereas most (but not all) fixed and folding blades are legal. Certain types of military combat knives are illegal - such as those with knuckle-guards, and certain 'rescue' knives made from certain super-hard super-sharp materials. Posession of the latter are limited to military and fire/police/rescue personnel.

The general spirit underlying all the fancy schmancy legalese is that if it's clearly designed for gang fighting, rather than for legitimate all-purpose utility, culinary or survival use, it's probably illegal.
