Butter no fly knife

Got arrested in Plano Texas in the late 80's for having a butterfly knife in my center console of my car. Sucks to have a prohibited weapons charge show up on your record.

Arrested? Not ticketed? In a state that has mandatory rifle rack laws? And it's still on your record?

It is HIGHLY possible to get that expunged especially if the officer wrote it up as you say. If the knife wasn't on your person, then it can be easily argued. And you'll probably get it removed. I will add to this that that is total bullshit on the officers part. You use to (prior to Texas adoption of CCW) be able to drive down the road with a 30-30 in the back window of the truck on a gun rack. To arrest for a friggin knife is pansey ass to the max.

Years ago I was riding with a group of "bikers" to go camping. A friend was driving my Van with the camping gear. I had a bayonet rolled inside my sleeping bag, cops stopped us and searched everything, found the bayonet & just took it. No arrest, just stole it for a trophy I guess.

If you had no reason to suspect they'd trump-up other charges, that is!

It was back in the early 70', they arrested one of the guys
for bootlegging because we had all our beer in his car, so it
was more than one case per person or some such shit.

My well-used Sebenza. Nothing fancy, but it has served me well for the past dozen years or so.

Tex,
Not much turns my head these days.
And you lie about the nothing fancy.

I never saw a Sebenza or knew about them. It'a really a tool, stark and beautiful and stinks of function.

I had to pull out my Protech Baby Brend and hold it for reassurance.
I carry it in my good pants.

My work knife is a Fallkniven U2. It's an excellent folder and tough.
Both the Protech Brend and the Fallkniven U2 have nice blade shapes.




Your darned Sebenza falls right in the middle.
It is a knife for every occasion.
Thanks,
bill

Sneak peek at one in progress...



A tanto I'm working on, of home-made Japanese style steel, with hamon - just got it back from my polisher. Now to do the fittings and find a way to photograph the whole thing in a way that shows it's beauty.
