    PC Sec. 8.06. ENTRAPMENT
    (a) It is a defense to prosecution that the actor engaged in the conduct charged because he was induced to do so by a law enforcement agent using persuasion or other means likely to cause persons to commit the offense.

    ASH, I like you would never do that to someone and I understand where you're coming from, I deal with these scenarios everyday on the job too
    and I think we are all in agreement that the knife laws in Texas are ridiculous and need serious reworking
    If that aint the truth I dont know what is. If you can get a CCL or are not a convicted felon you should be able to carry any type of knife. Sorry for the previous confusion I think we are headed in the same direction.

    OK I've read all this and agree, there needs to be some changes. Maybe I'm stupid but after reading all this I think I understand that if I am traveling in TX (which I do serveral times a year) and have a 3.5 folding, single edge, assit. opening, lock blade knife in my vehicle (not on me), I am ok any where I go?

    You can carry it on your person as long as your not in the San Antonio city limits. I don't know of any other places that have lock blade ordinance.

    As a proud new resident of TX, I am trying to learn about weapon laws in this state. I am an avid knife collector who lives in the Houston area, I frequntly travel to Dallas. I sometimes travel with my collection which consits of an Automatic Boker, as well as a few Tanto's. I have to assume the Boker is illegal (prohibited) and the Tanto's, with the top 1" portion of the blade being sharp, would be considered a "double edge"? I obvisouly do not carry on person the Boker Automatic, but I have from time to time carried my Tanto's. Am I breaking the law? The Tanto's blades are under 5 1/2"

    in a short word....yes
    if you are in possession of a switchblad (automatic Boker) anywhere....traveling or in your home....it is illegal, its a prohibited weapon

    as for the top edge of the tanto.....that is easily seen as a double edged knife (dagger), and you can have them in your car and on your own property but if you carry one on you in places other than these two then you can get busted for carrying the illegal knife

    I have a Strider with a swedged top like the one linked below. It's not sharpened but I've been told it was illegal. With all the misinformation floating around and interpretations by LEO's, what are everyone's thoughts on carrying this knife?

    I HAVE A QUESTION...

    I know I was bugging 64zebra about it (Sorry)

    Why are Balisongs (Butterfly knives) illigal in Texas?

    I used one when I was younger 17-18 working construction I had a Cheapy bali, It was a hammer, nail puller, knife, can opener, mixer. wire stripper, wire cutter, ect. Its real handy as an every day tool. Single edge as well.

    I would like to buy one or two better named brands but dont see the reason if I cant EDC it. I know some people carry those "Kambits" (I think that is what they are called, but not sure they are legal, and I know in a SD situation you can use this just like one to protect yourself and then use the knife if it escalates. I know they are not gravity knives because they dont come out on their own with gravity. They are not switchblades because there is no mechanism to show the blade. So I am wondering if anyone knows?

    Thank You

    that is not completely true.
    this is straight from the texas penal code:

    (d) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution under this section that the actor's conduct:
    (1) was incidental to dealing with a switchblade knife, springblade knife, or short-barrel firearm solely as an antique or curio

    a karambit knife is perfectly legal to carry in Texas provided that it is not a switchblade and it does not have a blade over 5.5"
