I want a knife! Laws?

Postby arber47 » Mon Jun 04, 2012 8:46 pm

I am 16 (gone be 17, doesn't really matter huh?) and I want to get some cool hunting/combat knife, something of that sort. I wanna know if it's possible for me to buy a knife in Chicago Illinois with my parents help online? I don't wanna walk around with it or concealed carry, I just wanna have one at home. Can I do that legally? Order and keep a knife(longer than 3" for sure, for combat/survival) in my home?

Of course you can, i live in chicago too AND I'm only 13, my dad is going to get me one by the end of the summer. as long as you don't carry it around you'll be fine. also it can't be double bladed (i don't know why) so don't by something like a stiletto later on. and have your parents approval since you're still a minor, than after that you can go crazy with them.

Yes, kitchen knives are longer and they make no distinction on how the knife is used in the home. Walking the streets with it is different.
