    [FONT]Knife Rights’ bipartisan Texas Knife Law Reform Bill, HB 1935, that would repeal the ban on ALL “illegal knives” in Texas statutes, has passed out of the House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee by a unanimous vote and is now headed to the Calendars Committee. HB 790, the other knife law reform bill that only repeals the ban on daggers, also passed out of the Committee.

    I'd spear hunt hogs. Then use a dagger to shave the hair. Bowie knife to quarter the carcass. Roman sword to cut the brush out for an easier meat haul.

    But someone, somewhere will get frightened. Then the 'Tools' revert back to 'Illegal knives'...

    "Illegal Knife" is a term for an unapproved "Tool".

    Wouldn't it be easier just to hold them with your hands? Seems like Duct Tape abuse.
