    Not a daft question, but sadly the answer is no.

    The KI is well protected because they don't want you to be able to clone cards. Though technically under UK law you own the sim card, they own some of the data on it, specifically the KI, which is your network identifier.

    It is not illegal for you to retrieve it, but the newer sim cards are constructed in such a way that doing so will almost always cause the sim to be destroyed. They are designed to allow only a limited number of attempts at guessing teh KI before they "self destruct" older sim cards did not have this limitation.
