Nice You guys do seem to have a lot of knife stores, I might have to retire there one day
(8 ) A zombie knife or other device that has a multi-edged blade, including a serrated section of blade, and— (a) is advertised or otherwise made available for sale using images or words that suggest the knife or device is intended to be used for violence, whether actual or threatened, against a person or fictional creature (such as a zombie), or (b) has, on the blade or handle, images, words or markings that suggest the knife or device is intended to be used for violence, whether actual or threatened, against a person or fictional creature (such as a zombie), or has been used to inflict violence.
Most of Australia's state knife laws are pretty restrictive, along with bows, swords, crossbows, bb guns, etc etc - but one of the more interesting (however you want to consider the word "interesting") is an addition made in NSW a year or two ago....
The knife charge held up and he was fined.A Victorinox classic, his car keys are bigger than that knife.
Isn't there a State that allows openly carrying katanas?
I cannot speak for Canada, but here self defense is not a reasonable excuse to carry a knife. Carrying anything for the purposes of self defense is illegal.
Isn't there a State that allows openly carrying katanas? More like "sword laws" there I guess.In my area (New South Wales) you must have a reasonable excuse to carry a knife.A ‘reasonable excuse’ includes, but is not limited to, the knife being ‘reasonably necessary’ for:-The lawful pursuit of an occupation, education or training,-The preparation or consumption of food or drink,-Participation in lawful entertainment, recreation or sport,-Exhibition for retail, trade or collector purposes,-Wearing an official uniform,-Genuine religious purposes, or-Travel to or from any of the above.I could not find any information on specifics, like blade length, oho folders, opening mechanism, double-edged, etc. Multi-tools and SAKs are ok, unless the cops think you are shady. Normal folders and fixed blades are ok if you are fishing/camping/hunting etc. There's a bunch of stuff we cannot import, like throwing knives/axes/stars, automatic folders, double-edged blades, "zombie" knives also I think. I've seen people doing kata and training with swords in parks, but I have to justify my Victorinox Manager. That makes sense.
With the exception of certain prohibited things (automatic knives, gravity knives, and push daggers come to mind), carrying and using knives as tools is legal. If your explicitly stated reason for carry is self defense, then you're looking for trouble.
Everyone in my area is required to carry a pocket knife at all times. Punishment for not having a knife is getting a hard time from the guy who lets you use his.
https://www.akti.org/state-knife-laws/pennsylvania/Pennsylvania prohibits automatic knives, but otherwise is pretty open outside of Philadelphia, which essentially bans the carry of knives.
This is the first time I’m hearing of this. The Philadelphia ordinance was apparently enacted in 1968, but I have never once been hassled about carrying a knife in Philly, and I lived in Center City from 1991-1997, in addition to operating a consultancy with many clients in Philadelphia until about 2010. I’ve never ever heard of this law, before today.
