Anyone who doesn't carry a knife of some kind for general use, including non-combat, is a pleb who is only interested in rollplay. Stick to wargames, shitters.

I've had daggers on every single one of my characters since the day I started playing 20 years ago.
I can count on one hand the times my DMs actually cared.

I have a goliath barbarian who flintknapped his own knife because the Forgotten Realm wiki said goliaths are good at that. The first battle of the campaign had us fighting a bunch of bandits lead by a battlemaster fighter who could disarm, so he disarmed by greataxe. I pulled out my shitty homemade stone knife and sodomized him with it. It has since become an in-house meme that my barbarian pulling out his knife means shit is about to go down.

They made those knives because the peasantry wasn't allowed to own swords. They did the most /k/ thing possible; make their knives as big as swords to get around the law.

No, it is illegal for citizens to carry swords, but the 2nd Decree of the King permits the right to bear knives. That is merely a great knife.

Yeah, it sounds like the peasants got around not being able to carry swords by carrying swords but calling them "great knives".

No, there's a distinct difference in construction between knives and swords.

It's based on the fact that only one side was sharpened and the hilt was two pieces of wood sandwiching the tang, like many knives had.

not having a dagger AND utility knives
ishiggydiggy

That's a myth.

Modern historians say it was more of a guild dispute between the knifemakers guild and the swordmakers guild. The grossemesser was a way for the knifemakers to get some of the swordmakers' business without infringing on any bylaws.

Isn't there some law in IRL Texas that allows people to carry around swords by classifying them as big knives or some shit?
I'm not sure on the specifics, just that you can carry swords in Texas. Texas, why haven't you made that a fashion trend yet?

California allows the carrying of peace-bonded swords so long as they are not concealed or brandished.
