    Depends on which country in South America you're going to.

    Edit: Sorry, maybe you meant South Africa?

    im pretty sure he means San Antonio, as lock backs are illegal in the city. i just bought a kabar tdi that is pretty cool. more of a self defense knife though. there are several fixed blades from benchmade and RAT cutlery

    haha ya. ive carried a lockback there several times before i knew about the law. i dont frequent SA very much though so its no big deal. i would look into the RAT Izula for fixed blade.

    Are you looking for something concealable (I would assume?) Is there a blade length restriction? Is this more of a tool, or something for defensive carry? Either way, I pretty much trust anything from Gerber. I think S&W makes a good little boot knife for a low price.

    HardCorps79, it is meant as a defensive tool and needs to be less than 5 1/4

    RAT Cutlery Izula. One of the best bang-to-buck ratio knives out there and under 3' in blade. Tip-top quality and the best warranty in the biz.

    Actually it's no double edged (dagger) and no more than 5 1/2

    Wow, I went to San Antonio for vacation this year and carried a lockback knife the whole time, never even crossed my mind that it could be illegal?!
