Texas Lifts Ban on Bowie Knife

A bipartisan House bill repealing the Lone Star State’s 1871 ban on Bowie knives and other large blades was signed last week by Gov. Greg Abbott.

The measure removing several restrictions on the carry of knives, HB 1935, passed the House 131-1 and the Senate 30-1 last month before being signed by Abbott without comment last Thursday.

The language of HB 1935 drops the carry of illegal knives such as “Bowie knives, daggers, dirks, stilettos, poniards, swords, and spears” from Texas penal code on weapons, a crime which currently carries fines of up to a year in jail, a fine of up to $4,000, or both. Previously, one could only exhibit such blades in public if they were part of a ceremony or historical demonstration.
