Every State in the USA is different. The Federal Laws in the USA pertain mainly shipping of the automatics and not possession. Here is a link with some basic State laws on the topic. Canada doesn't like autos or Bali's for the most part (or at least shipment of them from the USA).

I have a Kershaw Ken Onion. Straight blade. I used to have a Gerber Paraframe II, that was serrated. For the few times that I'd use the serrated part, I found it not worth it. If you keep the blade sharp, then you shouldn't have much trouble with a straight blade.

Ahh cool..

What I really want (apart from the LST), is something a bit smaller that I can fit into my pocket when I go out. Sometimes it can be a little unsafe when I take a trip downtown after dark. I've had to deal with too many jerks (ending up in shoving matches) because I won't give them a cigarette or the crack heads that lurk down there. Especially when my girl is with me. She's a lover, not a fighter.

Any recommendations? I've seen some cool pieces in the "what's in your pocket" thread.

Feel free to chime in

I'd recommend avoiding those places personally. If it's that bad don't go there. If you can't avoid them, then remember to never bring a knife to a gun fight. If it's not worth killing over, then it's not worth fighting over to begin with. And if it is worth fighting over, fight as best you can. With the best tool you can - a gun.

Well said. These days a knife isn't really a good form of personal protection, especially a small pocket knife. Personally I do not think I would pull a knife in a fight unless I was on my back and used it as a last resort. I don't know the laws regrading a concealed pistol in Canada, but if downtown is that bad, you may consider looking into it.

Well yeah, I mean.. I try to avoid fighting as much as possible, and downtown isn't really avoidable.. Just people here are... Weird... I would obviously never pull a knife right away, it'd be a last-resort thing, like you said. I could even walk downtown during broad daylight and get harassed by people.

I like camping too, and have gone so many times without a knife when it would've been greatly useful.

In regards to owning a gun in Canada, the laws are insane.. You have to get a gun license, and when it's not in use it has to have a trigger lock AND be locked in a safe, as far as I'm aware, I'd have to look into it more. I really was looking into getting a 357 Magnum, I just love the way that thing looks. Target shooting is fun too. I'm not a diehard "gun redneck," I just enjoy shooting. I was in the Air Cadets when I was younger, and we used to shoot in the range often. My dad was also in the military where I've held/fired some pretty cool firearms.

EDIT: Just dug this up, as you can see, it's a pretty extensive process to own a gun in Canada.

I used to have a knife very similar to that, I bought it at Advance Auto Parts. I think you said earlier you got it from an auto parts store so I wouldn't doubt if it was the same exact knife (or very similar). I lost it a LONG while ago...

Whatever needs cutting. Wood or kindling for fires, ropes or cord, used when camping etc... Gutting and skinning when hunting or fishing... Very useful items.
