Widespread belief persists about the existence of a “bigfoot” hominid in North American forests. Likewise, many believe there is a get-out-of-jail free “collector” exception to laws regarding the possession of restricted or prohibited knives. Some states do provide limited exceptions in applicable statutes for antique weapons, including knives.
In the December issue of Knife Magazine, attorney and knife expert Dan Lawson examines knife laws relevant to knife collections in an article title “Collectors.” He discusses the problems of transporting and disposing of knife collections for the owner and future beneficiaries.
