Best April Fools knife joke I've seen thus far.
That’s pretty funny.
You still got some reach on this one...
saw that and actually fell for it for a minute. anything cali could be true when it comes to ridiculous and over the top.
The California Legal Cold Steel Espada XL (AKA Espadita XL) is an ultra-limited, ultra-custom, ultra-compact-where-it-counts knife with a modified clip point blade courtesy of Andrew Demko. Knife critics are calling it, "the best thing since sliced bread" or in Cold Steel's case... "sliced pig." The Cali Legal Espada XL offers a blade measuring just under 4 inches, paired with a full-size handle for comfortable three-handed use. It just makes sense.
9.25" handle disappears in the pocket for convenient and discreet everyday carry.
Unique blade/handle ratio for anyone who prefers a smaller blade but likes to keep all hands on deck.
Abbreviated steel liners and Cold Steel's incomparable Tri-Ad Lock.
I'm not one for April Fool's pranks, but this was hilarious! Nicely done, Blade HQ!
Just call it the CLEX.
Wow, they're actually selling it!
there is no restriction on blade length in Cali, only require fixed blade to be worn in the open and I happened to run into the first person in my 25 years or living here who was openly carrying a browning brand of the Sharp Finger in a nylon pouch at a gas station
You are correct, no restriction on fixed blade length but must be worn in a sheath on your belt in plain sight. Folders no length restriction but must worn in the pocket not in the open. The caveat here is that California cities and counties can enact stricter rules or go with the California one. Los Angeles is especially draconian on knives so you must be cognizant of the rules anywhere you travel. Luckily they go by standard Ca Rules here, so I carry/wear XL's, Magnum Tanto's etc. when I want.
They actually point that out in the video. It's part of the joke.
In a locale that restricts blade length and not OAL , something like this might actually make some sense for SD . A crazy solution for insane laws .
Edit : Changed my mind about making sense when I noticed the $400 price tag !
I have a feeling there is only one of these. Collectible?
