Or am I mistaken Charles?
There should an exception for "large knife" for a CHL. There was thread that a LEO was mistaken when he thought CHLer could not carry large Knife like a Bayonet or Sword.
Sec. 46.15. NONAPPLICABILITY.
(b) Section 46.02 does not apply to a person who:
(6) is carrying a concealed handgun and a valid license issued under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, to carry a concealed handgun of the same category as the handgun the person is carrying;
I am not a lawyer, but what I understand is that if you have a CHL and you are carrying EDC, then the whole 46.02 does not apply. So, the actor has an exception to 46.02, all of it, including carrying illegal knives. NOTE: your understanding of the law is as in your mileage may vary. The judge may have a different understanding of the law.
