People are being urged to get rid of weapons they know they should not have during a week-long knife amnesty at Maidstone Police Station.
Police said people would be able to deposit knives anonymously in bins at the front counter from Monday.
Crime reduction manager John Grant said the last knife surrender was more than three years ago in Maidstone.
He said this year's event was to coincide with the government's Tackling Knives Action Programme.
"I am hopeful that this event will give people the opportunity to get rid of weapons they know they shouldn't have," he added.
And he said: "Even though you may have no intention of using a knife in your possession, you cannot necessarily stop it getting into the wrong hands, or even being used on yourself.
"This is just one way that we can tackle violent crime."
Police are also asking people to report others if they carrying illegal weapons.
Knives deposited in the bins should be safely wrapped.
