Why you would need a knife on you when you're out in public is beyond me.

I think a blade under 3" or under is legal, but anything automatic is illegal. The means no switchblades. You cannot carry a double-sided blade, either. But, regular stilletos (opened by pushing a knob ON the blade) are legal, if the blade is proper size. Pocket knives are no problem. But, butterfly knives are also illegal to carry around.

Just carry around a good pen like a metal biro or parker pen (the clicky kind)... if you are attacked you can reach into your pocket and stab the ****er in the neck...


plus in the unlikely event of a girl giving her phone number or other such mythological encounter you can also write stuff

Around here (bay area, california) something like that is legal. In fact, me and my brother are going knife shopping for something like that tomorrow. Anything much larger than that would be illegal though, as would any swtichblades, or fixed-blade knives.

Well gee what are you gonna be doing with it? I really dont know what you would need to take your knife out for in public unless your assaulting someone, in which case it really wouldnt matter if its legal anyways. Unless your just trying to show off with your new blade trying to be hardcore.
#14
cause the blade on mine is 3.65 inches long so that may be illegal haha, atleast in public

Then it really doesnt matter if its legal I guess, but probably only if your being assualted or mugged or something, as your just defending youself. Not just whipping it out to whip it out.

I think the law is under 2" in many New England states. It depends on where you live though. I think it's 3" in California.

Actually, here is a site that spells out what you can't carry in each site very clearly.

Just look at your state, problem solved!

rule of thumb:

its better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it

this doesnt apply to right now

i couldnt see any reason to carry that knife around besides intimidation(sp)

to anwser the question ... no its not illegal but it would be stupid to carry it around

especially with the school year starting up again soon (if not already)

thats how i got kicked outta my school

EDIT:
thats a pretty cool looking knife lol

It's odds that the guy kicking your ass will just take it and stab you in the face.

Don't carry it.

Na. Katanas are to over-rated. A 12 ft. broad sword is much beter to have. Plus it makes you look like a badass kid with a huge sword .

I think that knife is a Gerber Vapor, or some shit like that. But auto knives are illegal, butterfly knives are illegal, double edged knives are illegal. And here in Texas as long as the blade is no longer then the width of your hand its fine. I dont know about else where but I have a knife that has a 4 inch blade and cops have stopped me taken it and given it right back. I guess it just depends on where you live.

i have one just like that and i carry it along with a couple others. i live in maine and as long as u don't go out and knife sombody the cops arn't gonna take away your knives. my buddy brought a fifteen incher to a mall, on his belt and they didn't take it away. but this all depends on where you live.
