Default carrying a USMC knife

Hello,
Is it legal to carry a Camillus USMC Mark2 at the waist in its sheath on trails in the wild of a official natural park (NPS) in California ?
I Am going to hike but afraid of any wild animal encounter.

Is it legal to carry the same knife in the trunk of your car anywhere in California ?

And in the glovebox is it legal ?

Just asking for not doing anything illegal by mistake.

thanks

1) Probably yes - check the website of each park; they seem more wary of firearms.

2) and (3) - the state does not seem to care (unless some state park has such a rule, check the websites), but cities and counties are allowed to have their own laws, so you'll have to check their websites, too.

If there is wildlife that can truly hurt you, a knife isn't going to help...

Big gun or pepper spray come to mind before a knife. I dont want the big bad animal within melee range. They live in the wild and are built to kill. We're just visiting.

I have been stopped in county owned parks in CA as I have a fixed blade knife on my back pack strap. At the trailhead it will typically state what is legal and not.

I carry anyway as my life is worth more than the dumb *** rule of not having a knife in the wild. Never had an issue in State or Fed parks.

The same knife in a Coast Guard or Air Force sheath would be much less intimidating.

What does that reply have to do with the OP’s question?

thanks for all the hints ? What about carrying a dagger inside your car ? Is it allowed or is it illegal ? I read the law and seems like it is nto allowed, I also read this thread:

https://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/....php?t=1185794

anyway I am still confused, seems like somebody stated that carrying a dagger in your car inside a bag is allowed...

I just bought a Fairbairn Skyes dagger, B2 from WWII. I will receive it by Mail. Is this also forbidden ? Then I will bring it to my storage place. How to bring it to my storage if I Cannot even carry it inside my car neither on myself ?

The stolen valor act was struck down so now you can carry that USMC knife with impunity.

In a 6-3 decision, the Court affirmed the ruling of the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco (9th Cir.) in United States v. Alvarez that the federal Stolen Valor Act was unconstitutional because of the severe limitations it placed on the First Amendment.

Carrying a USMC knife does not constitute stolen valor.

There are a mesh of laws on carrying a fixed blade knife.

On the person - obviously exposed
On the person concealed

In your backpack - concealed but not concealed upon the person

As to the car
Different cities and counties have knife laws.
They might limit where and how one has a fixed knife.


Do you keep you paperwork where you keep your knife?

License, proof of insurance and registration & knife all in the glove box.

Do you want to be the person who reaches into the glovebox at night to grab registration from next to the knife?


Or remember to tell the officer at a traffic stop.... License is in my wallet - other paperwork well that's next to Rambo's knife.

Possession of Knives on School Grounds – Penal Code § 626.10

It is illegal for any person to bring or possess “any dirk, dagger, ice pick, knife having a blade longer than 2 1/2 inches, folding knife with a blade that locks into place, [or] razor with an unguarded blade . . . upon the grounds of, or within, any public or private school providing instruction in kindergarten or any of grades 1 to 12 . . .” See § 626.10(a)(1). Subsection (b) of the statute provides that it is illegal for any person to possess “any dirk, dagger, ice pick, or knife having a fixed blade longer than 2 1/2 inches upon the grounds of, or within, any [college or university].”
Possessing a Knife in a Government Building – Penal Code § 171b

Legal blades 4″ or longer that are fixed or capable of being fixed are illegal within any state or local public building or at any meeting required to be open to the public. See § 171b(A)(3). Here, a “state or local public building” is a building that is owned or leased by the state or local government, with state or local public employees working on a regular basis. See § 171b(C)(1).

---

So can you legally walk into a visitor station with a knife or is that a government building and prohibited?

I used to carry a Tomahawk with a pointy end because of LACO/LA/CA insane knife laws. Look into the law, it might be less penalty to constitutional carry.
