    a sgian-dubh should not be illegal, even to carry, isn't the Canadian federal law only prohibit fixed blades longer than 12"? or something reasonable... I don't recall atm

    Since when is this illegal in Canada? Wth?
    Can anyone shed more light on this

    This is a Montreal city bylaw and it's been discussed a few times here.

    Walking around with a visible knife there (or a pocket clip in Calgary) gets you the bad kind of attention.

    This was a two year old story (okay, a year and a half)...if the subject is being raised here, now, why not at least give an update on the outcome?
    @dirc you dragged it up, find out what happened & report back.

    I haven';t but on my trips to Cowtown I'm not usually there very long. It's well know apparently though.
