I carry a 8 inch hunting knife in my truck and have been for quite some time.
I cross the border every couple weeks and last time canadian customs (young punk) after making me go through the xray decided to go into my truck and flip through everything. He came across the knife and told me to get rid of it since its illegal. Mumbled something about anything over 4-5 inches is illegal...
I asked him where he got that information from and he replied with "Get out of here before i change my mind" which leads me to believe hes pulling facts out of his azz.
Now ive looked into this before and there is NO LENGTH limit anywhere in the canadian criminal code that i can find, only different types of knives are prohibited
(a) a knife that has a blade that opens automatically by gravity or centrifugal force or by hand pressure applied to a button, spring or other device in or attached to the handle of the knife, or
(b) any weapon, other than a firearm, that is prescribed to be a prohibited weapon;
The knife is something like the one below...it has a fixed handle
Anyone have any insight into this?
Come out cops, and clear this up
