Frequently Asked Questions: What about KNIVES?


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.
