What is the legal limit of the length of a fixed blade knife in California?
To own? Or carry?
I doubt there's any limit on what you can own, otherwise machetes and such would be illegal. Who knows what you are/aren't allowed to carry there though.
yeah i meant to carry.
Openly carried has no limit IIRC, check out CA Penal Code Section 12020 should be near the end that it talks about openly carrying fixed blades. I've never read much into concealed carry of fixed blades in CA, but I'm pretty sure any length fixed blade knife is considered a "dirk or dagger" and thus can not be carried concealed.
@ AV and the question at hand
No longer than 14 inches. Walk around with a Ka-Bar and pull it out when cops are around, they will think you are cool and buy you drinks.
