Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Hi, this is my first time posting on this forum. I've been looking to carry around a small knife, as I've noticed having a knife at times would help make a lot of the volunteer work/activities I do much easier. I've been doing a little bit of research, and I think a folding knife would be the best for me. However, I'm more worried about the laws. From my research, I think as long as the blade is under 3 inches, I should be fine. However, I was just curious about the more specific laws for my area, mainly orange county/irvine. I definitely wouldn't carry it to school, but I was wondering if it was a bad idea to just have it on my person for my other activities. Thanks!
