I am 65 years old. I spend a large part of my time in the mountains as I backpack, hunt, dayhike and the like. Usually I am alone. I am concerned that with all of the crazy people in this world that I may have some kind of trouble that I cannot run away from or otherwise escape from. At 65 I cannot run as fast as I could in my younger years and I never could fight worth a dam. I would like to know the leagality of carring a knife on my belt outside my pants. I realize the answer depends on where you live and many other considerations, but what is the general rules of carring a knife. I live in Kalifornia.
