There is no 3" max law in California. On school grounds you can only carry a knife of max 2.5 inches.

Except hidden daggers, belt knives, lipstick/hidden/concealed knives, and the above pictured butterfly knives you can open carry just about anything. I have a bowie knife that is completely legal to carry on my belt.

No offense taken , Steve ;) Even if the confusion caused by the laws is not intentional , there is little in the way of official clarification out there, for any of us. It seems to me , that Jeggeda is correct anyway, by all that I have read and watched ,including the vid he suggested. Which, helped me to think that the Ganzo may be legal IF it is not considered a switchblade. I see no 3" law but, it may be that citizens that want to stay within safe margin of the law by defaulting to 3" ? I ascertain so far, that under 4" for otherwise legal types concealed is the law. I read several times that L.A. has stricter laws but didn't pay much attention to those details.
I do appreciate all input folks, thank you, all. I'm still teetering at this point but, all of the food for thought and reminders are helpful, even if to "Flush out" clarity.
Nymzavril, I SO agree, it's bonkers in this so called "Free country" ,too !

I Have a Mora Bushcraft Black to cover any medium weight tasks but, finding a decent pocket knife has been brain racking ! I'll have a look at your further suggestions too, Steve. Thank you ;)

I wish they had knock offs of some of the stuff I like.. Got this recently and I'm a big fan of these new super metals CS is using now.. Much better than the old stuff.. Got this one to give my CS 4" lawman a break,, at least that's how I justified it ;)

Cali figured out how to hurt themselves with water recently so small knifes are probably a good idea out there is my guess.. I understand big black balls are the fancy now.. Sorry couldn't resist.. GL in your quest..

If in doubt I would go to the Sheriffs office and ask the Sheriff. I have done that when it comes to gun laws. I figure they will be the ones enforcing so no better place to get the interpretation.

I know with large clear plastic water containers you want to black them out so algae won't grow..

I have never seen this done before with the balls to stop evaporation.. There are 96 million of these balls the tax payers bought so far.. TY for beta testing the concept and hopefully it works out for you guys and gets you through until you get some precipitation out there....

Lol, don't mention it, Iggys !

Excellent idea Vapor. I was thinking, it may come to that, to print a few with the specs and take them down there.

^^^ That reminds me of a story I heard , of a guy that received one of those photographed moving violation citations in the mail. He sent them back a photo of the amount of cash to pay it, lol! They sent back a photo of handcuffs. He paid the ticket.
