Weapon Law in Poland: what kinds of knives are legal?

I'm going to buy a knife as a birthday present for my friend. Blade length is 3.5 inches (about 8,89 cm). It's a simple knife, not a balisong or anything. Is it legal to have such knife in Poland? Will my friend be able to transport this knife from Ukraine to Poland? Also, if anybody knows, what types of knives are legal in Poland, please, write about it.

Wikipedia "All kind of knives are regarded as dangerous tools, but are not considered weapons under Polish law, so no restriction related to weapons apply. The exception is a blade hidden in an object that doesn't look like a weapon (a sword in an umbrella, a dagger in a shoe etc.). It is legal to sell, buy, trade and possess any knives, and Polish law does not prohibit carrying a knife in a public place. However, certain prohibitions in possession of so-called "dangerous tools" may apply during mass events."

The kind you wouldn't use to kill someone despite your worst intentions.
