Iowa member's, help?

Discussion in 'Knife Laws' started by The.one.true.Lebowski, Apr 10, 2018.

    Just can't seem to find a clear answer anywhere I search. In Iowa with a CCW can you carry a push dagger? Who makes a good reasonably priced push dagger or other full tang double edged dagger? Iowa knife laws are written as confusing as possible, most of our "weapons" laws kind of are. Any Way push dagger in Iowa with ccw or not?​

    Iowa has very broadly phrased laws on the matter of knives. Most push daggers would generally fall within the state's definition a "dangerous weapon" because, let's face it, they're designed to stab people and have no other non-weapon purpose.

    However, the carry restrictions have one big exception:

    https://www.legis.iowa.gov/docs/code/2018/724.4.pdf

    The phrasing of the statute seems to suggest if you have a CCW, you are effectively exempt from all knife carry restrictions, provided knife is something other than a spring-operated ballistic knife.
