    Quick Question about Daggers

    in most states, daggers are pretty much verboten for carry. as a result, about half my knife collection sits in a toolbox, looking at me sadly.

    if i were to dull/grind down one of the edges of the blade, would that legally make it a single edge, and not a dagger? i'm not planning on it, because i hate to mangle good knives, but the thought just occured to me a minute ago. i just got an older Safekeeper II in the mail, the ones that were made in Japan, not Taiwan; i had this knife years ago, and when the chance arose to own it again, i jumped on it. as soon as i got it, i lamented that i'd never be able to carry it.

    from my understanding a drop point is still considered a dagger or any blade with the top sharpened. sorry man.

    he actually had his own series, separate from TMNT; it was based on the Yojimbo movies starring Toshiro Mifune, so was more adult oriented. the makers of TMNT got permission to use him as a recurring character. Osagi is awesome; a lot of Japanese movie and manga characters were adapted for his series, like Lone Wolf and Cub, Zatoichi, and the ronin from Sleepy Eyes of Death.

    I think it would depend on the state. Washington State a dagger like knife can be carried if the back edge is not sharpened.

    Definitely. A few states, like mine, do allow carrying daggers. Here's a useful page with data for what knives are legal in each state for OC or CC. State Knife Carry and Blade Length Laws

    So, jahwarrior72, if you visit CO, bring your dagger!
