No locking folders at UC for visitors - from the knife laws sticky
University of California, which is now like K-12 for non-students/employees – 5 CCR § 100015
[[5 CCR § 100000]] Violation of regulations promulgated under section 92440.5 is punishable as a misdemeanor. Pursuant to section 92440.5, these regulations do not apply to the conduct of students, officers, or employees of the University; their conduct is governed by other University regulations.

[[Misdemeanor to carry or possess]]
B. Any knife having a blade two and one-half inches or more in length.
C. Any folding knife with a blade that locks into place.
You'll have to check the employee handbook to see what it says about knives for employees.

I've been saying that for years ...

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Spyderco makes some folders with either a yellow or red composition handle.

It is very easy to comment "oh I install carpet as a side job- that's just a carpet cuttin tool I forgot about" or some other work tool story when people see the item clipped in your pocket.

Spyderco also carries some nice steels. The H1 salt is almost rustproof.

Blue- with full size handle.


They also make some nasty looking hawk bill style knives- think silence of the lambs 2

They tend to have a shorter handle on the 3" / smaller knives.

my vote is the kershaw leek. I prefer the ss version with the body lock and not liner lock version. These are assisted and open nicely with little effort. US made and lifetime sharpening, just mail them in. I love my leeks.

I tried the benchmades (griptillian and mini grip) did not like the handles, they felt cheap and the scaled material felt cheap too. The leek profile is perfect, sleek and the right size.

Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.
