    I'm looking into buying this spear M48 Kommando Talon Survival Spear
    ...but I'm confused by the wording of the laws as they're classed as illegal knives. Are spears illegal to own entirely in Texas or are they legal to keep in your own home? I do not intend to carry -- concealed, licensed or otherwise. Except you know, if things get seriously messed up and lawless.

    Your good. Buy it. Probably not ok to carry though, but you can own it.

    Also welcome.

    People buy stuff like that all the time to put on display in their homes, so you should be good.

    tawaret, buy it and take it hog hunting. You will get real world experience using it for taking meat.

    If you have any tool or skill that you plan on trying out for the first time after the SHTF, you are going to be in serious trouble :)

    As you found, spears are illegal knives. See penal 46.02 for the law regarding illegal knives. They are covered in 46.03 as well, but for your own premises see 46.02.
