Frankly, I'd rather have shoddy, or extremely limited security screening at theme parks unless there is an ongoing gang problem.

Post 9/11 rules prohibiting knives and scissors are asinine unless you think you can hijack a roller coaster.

C Carlson,

MaNcEr is in South Africa, home of cars with built in flame throwers. I don't think he needs to worry about U.S. gun laws.

Tom, No problems in California possessing pepper spray, or normal Spyderco-type folders. The state does not restrict blade length (except at schools and such), but some towns do. If your worried about it stick to the Delica, but I wouldn't expect a typical tourist to run into problems carrying an En...

The main difference between the gunting and any other knife, is that the gunting was purpose built to be used as both a knife and a less-than-lethal weapon. For more info on the use of the gunting I suggest visiting these two sites affiliated with Bram Frank, the knife's designer. http://cssdsc.com/...

Thanks for the link. Fortunately the law in California has actually been changed since the time of that case to make clear that mere posession of a closed folding lock blade with a thumb hole is not a crime under state law. http://pweb.netcom.com/~brlevine/ca.txt Best regards, Argyll Qui non est hod...

As Mr. Skin said, even superficial head wounds tend to bleed a lot. I believe there is an FMA technique called "veil of blood" or something to that effect which involves slashing your opponents forehead, so that he's blinded by the copious flow of blood.

The problem with trying to understand the law, especially as it pertains to weapons including knives, is that the language of the statutes don't tell the whole story. For example there is no statute in California which refers to butterfly knives by name, they have however been found by a court of ap...
