Can a convicted federal felon carry a folding pocket knife in California? What is the legal length limit? He has a federal felony, he is not on parole, no history of violence, just mail fraud.

Thank you for your question.

Be sure to go ahead and bookmark for future questions.

As you are no longer on parole, there is no prohibition from you owning a pocket knife and there are no length issues with pocket knives. You are subject to the same laws as everyone else when it comes to what kind of knife you can carry. The penal code referencing what knives are legal and illegal can be found here If you require more information, I will be happy to follow up with you.

Thanks! Nate
