  1. swordcane

    Hey after I get a ccw permit could I carry a swordcane? I live in wisconson. I am a High School Fencing Coach. I would also carry a 1911. It would be very nice to carry a swordcane, light and fast to stop attacks that are not by a gun. I think that our new ccw bill will allow carring a knife concealed . I would love to see a Badguy pull a knife and I pull a sword and slice off something to stop the attack. I would of course not carry any weapon unless it was lawful and not use any weapon unless it's use was lawfull.

    First question is what state are you in. A Concealed Weapons Permit or whatever your state calls it varies all over the place about what they consider a concealed weapon. For instance here in SC it only covers handguns less than 12" long whereas in other states it covers many different types of weapons. A swordcane may fall under many different laws so you will have to research it for your state to see. It may be considered a simple knife or may not. However I doubt that anyone on here can give you a blanket statement about the legalities of one. The laws covering it will also vary for individual cities and counties so do your research but it is a good choice of weapons. I have one that was given to me by my father over 40 years ago but I would not carry it around in public. It could cause too much hassle even if it is legal.

    It depends in what state you are. In texas it's illegal.

    You would have to check the penal Codes (Law) in your City, Town or, Village .Where I live in New York it would be Illegal because of Blade Length. Even if you Posses a Concealed Weapons Permit. All Weapons must be Listed on your Permit and they wouldn't list a sword as a Concealed Weapon Best thing you could do is Check your States Laws and, your Local Town, City or Village Laws Pertaining to Concealed Weapons

    In most states it would be illegal. Training in firearms CCW course does nothing to certify you in sword or knife use. The blade length is a problem in some states, and others specifically ban swords. I think you have watched to many Zorro movies with the cutting off the nose stuff. Death is not a game.

    I think your going to be very restricted on that in most states. But the part I would like to point out is your quote. It’s a very bad idea to post statements like that. Its not unheard of for lawyers to use statement posted on line to show you were “looking for a fight”.

    Like Saltcreek said, this isn’t a game, and if you have to fight for your life you then have to fight for your lively hood.

  8. One option you have, while not swords or even sharp are these:
    City Stick : Walking Sticks (Cold Steel)
    Slim Stick

    I don’t carry a cane but I’ve always thought is I ever had to, I’d use one I couldn’t break, if I had to use it for self defense.

    If you live in NH you could carry it. Just did away with legal blade lengths. If you can carry it you can have it, can also carry around Auto knifes. Only law I can find on it is RSA 159.19-a Criminal use of a sword cane/pistol cane.

    159:19-a Criminal Use of Pistol Cane or Sword Cane. –
    I. Any person who uses a pistol cane or sword cane on another person with intent to commit a crime punishable as a misdemeanor shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
    II. Any person who uses a pistol cane or sword cane on another person with intent to commit a crime punishable as a felony shall be guilty of a class B felony.
    III. Neither the whole nor any part of a sentence of imprisonment imposed for a violation of this section shall be served concurrently with any other term of imprisonment.

    In NC, it would suck to be you as well...CHP is for handguns only.
