===General laws===
+
 
+
Except for switch-blades and schools, the State does not specify a length for knives.
+
 
+
The State does NOT pre-empt cities and counties from their own knife laws; however, cities and counties can create only misdemeanors and infractions.  There can be no local laws imposing a felony for simple possession.
+
 
+
===Fixed blade knives===
+
 
+
Fixed blades must be carried openly, to avoid a ‘dirk or dagger’ felony.
+
 
+
===Folding knives===
+
Folded folders are NOT ‘dirks or daggers’.
+
 
+
===School and university carry===
+
University of California and K-12 schools ban all blades longer than 2 ½ inches, and locking folders.
+
 
+
Other Colleges and Universities ban fixed-blades longer than 2 ½ inches.
