  way to or from, an activity in which he legitimately used
  the weapon...
- 14-269.2... (d) It shall be a misdemeanor for any person to
  possess or carry, whether openly or concealed, any...
  bowie knife, dirk, dagger... switchblade knife... razors
  and razor blades (except solely for personal shaving), and
  any sharp-pointed or edged instrument, except
  instructional supplies, unaltered nail files and clips and

  law enforcement officers... to possess, offer for sale,
  hold for sale, sell, give, loan, deliver, transport,
  manufacture or go armed with any spring-loaded projectile
  knife, ballistic knife, or any weapon of similar
  character...

 North Carolina Case Law:
- "Carrying concealed weapons in reasonable apprehension of
  deadly assaults is not justification of a violation of the
  statutory offense, but in aggravation thereof, and may be
  considered by the trial judge in imposing the sentence..."
  (1916)
- "A person acting in ignorance of the law in good faith and
  upon advice of the clerk of the court or of an attorney,
  but in violation of this section, is not excused." (1907)
- "Knife about 4-1/2 inches in overall length which, when
  folded, was clearly designed for carrying in a pocket or
  purse, was an 'ordinary pocketknife' as defined by this
  section." (1989)
- "This section making it indictable for one to carry
  concealed about his person any pistol, bowie knife, razor
  or other deadly weapon of like kind, embraces a butcher's
  knife." (1884)

 (b) This prohibition shall not apply to the following

      (4)  The defendant did not use or attempt to use the
           weapon for an illegal purpose.
The burden of proving this defense is on the defendant.
