Monster machetes and Rambo-style knives are being sold two minutes’ walk from the scene of the Nottingham stabbing horror.
A store specialising in high-end air rifles is flogging huge blades for as little as £25.99 as well as a massive range of potentially deadly pocket knives 0.5 miles from where teens Grace and Barnaby were knifed to death.
It was still open on Saturday and it is understood it did not close its doors in the wake of the horror.

Among its machetes is a black Walther TAC 2 model with a sheath for £49.99 that measures 15.2 inches.
It has a “Mick Crocodile Dundee” knife for £40 measuring 16.5 inches, and its bone handled desert blade is £25 and the store has a “K25 Boot Dagger Knife” measuring just under five inches.
There are also a huge range of Rambo-style survival knives on offer.
The shop has knife displays and scores of blades on sale on its site.
We contacted the store and were told its owner does not live in Britain.

We asked the owner and store director to contact us for comment on whether they will be removing its knife displays in the wake of the triple murder minutes from its doors.
The law states it is illegal to carry knives or weapons without a “good reason” – and the only exception to the rule is carrying blades that have a cutting edge no longer than three inches.
