Thanks for the response. Just for clarification, do you think it would be illegal for me to carry my fixed blade attached to the outside of my tactical briefcase. I would lash the sheath onto the MOLLE. Thanks again.

God Bless,
David

So far as state law is concerned (and avoiding schools and other restricted areas) that should be OK.

Regarding CA PC sec. 21510 pertaining to “Switchblades”, (c) notes “transfers” as a violation, my question is:

* If I legally purchase a switchblade knife in Oregon and bring it back to my home in California locked in the trunk of my vehicle have I violated this law? Has the Oregon seller violated this law? A reply with knowledgeable opinion would be appreciated.

Here’s PC sec. 21510 from the link on page 1, post 1, https://law.onecle.com/california/penal/21510.html

And their switchblade discussion is a bit too narrow; so long as one does not do any of the things in 21510, switchblades are legal to own and possess, even if the blade is longer than 2 inches. Can't buy them in CA, because it's illegal to sell in CA.
Thank for this information!
All the best!

(Sorry, missed this earlier)

I don't see how an Oregon seller, doing business in Oregon (and not, for example, an internet sale) would be bound by CA law.

21510 does not ban import, and your proposed method of transport does not violate (a), so it seems you would also be in the clear.

I'm sure a motivated, inventive DA could find a reason to charge you under those circumstances, but actually obeying statute law is ordinarily a pretty good defense.

Could a person in California sell a balisong to an out-of-state buyer, through an internet forum for instance?

Or would it actually be necessary for him to drive the knives out of CA before offering them for sale?

Since the text says
Quote:
Every person who does any of the following with a
switchblade knife having a blade two or more inches in length is
guilty of a misdemeanor:
(a) Possesses the knife in the passenger's or driver's area of any
motor vehicle in any public place or place open to the public.
(b) Carries the knife upon the person.
(c) Sells, offers for sale, exposes for sale, loans, transfers, or
gives the knife to any other person.
and generally CA law applies only inside CA (there are exceptions, not pertinent here), your answer should be 'don't do the actions in (c) inside CA'.
