Knife Laws By State. This article has links to every state law on knifes which I think will help us know what is legal in your state.

Wyoming law is great. It is not the weapon that creates a crime, it is the person.September 17, 2015 at 7:04 pm #43882

Now there you go freedom, making sense again. They’re going to send you back for re-education until you say it’s the object and not the bad person using it.September 17, 2015 at 7:23 pm #43883
Oh MB I am on the red list, blue list and green list. Oh well what can I do! In Cuba for over 55 years there has been re-education programs. So did you see how good that works? Did you see the news of 12 Cubans landing on the beach in South Beach? Yes it works, it re-educates you to get the hell out of the country.
We the People well never be re-educated period. Dying free is living.September 18, 2015 at 12:40 am #43885
AZ is pretty good also .September 20, 2015 at 1:18 pm #43925
Oregon knife laws better than many others. Home of Benchmade Knife Co. & Kershaw Knives. Alaska great place too.September 20, 2015 at 6:59 pm #43927
About a year ago a friend made me a knife. Fixed 6 1/2 inch blade. We got to talking about the difference legal lengths of blade. Some times it is really stupid like in San Antonio where it is against the law to carry any knife that is UNDER 6 1/2 inches!

Philadelphia probably has the worst law:
§10-820. Cutting Weapons in Public Places. 
Cutting Weapon. Any knife or other cutting instrument which can be used as a weapon that has a cutting edge similar to that of a knife. No tool or instrument commonly or ordinarily used in a trade, profession or calling shall be considered a cutting weapon while actually being used in the active exercise of that trade, profession or calling.
(2) Prohibited Conduct. No person shall use or possess any cutting weapon upon the public streets or upon any public property at any time.
(3) Penalty. The penalty for violation of this section shall be a fine of not less than three hundred (300) dollars and imprisonment of not less than ninety days.September 20, 2015 at 11:36 pm #43931
LOL! And the politicians have no understanding of why we hold them in derision….
It’s only not “considered a cutting weapon WHILE actually being used in the active exercise of that trade, profession or calling.”
So let me see if I’ve got this straight. A rabbi goes to a home and performs a covenant circumcision as part of his calling. No problem – he’s not using a “cutting weapon.” But the moment he cleans up that instrument, places it back in its case, and walks out the door to return to his office or home where he normally stores it, he’s guilty of a serious crime and worthy of jail for at least ¼ of a year and a fine of at least $300, while not earning any income or serving his congregation. Where’s the ADL when we need them?!? I don’t stand a chance in Philly with my little 3-blade Case knife that is always in my left front pocket!
A bit more seriously, anybody can be arrested any time “they” want to arrest us, because there’s always something on the books somewhere that we’ve “violated.” And as absurd as that previous sentence might seem, that’s exactly what happens in SHTF situations. When “they” want an excuse to round people up, they can always find one. Might one logically conclude that “we the people” have either elected morons or devious psychopaths – or more likely, a dangerous combination of the two? ‘Nuf sed. I need to go fan myself before I pass out from the absurdity. Over and out.September 20, 2015 at 11:40 pm #43932
Oh well it’s better to carry a handcannon anyway and it’s legal as long as you have your permit.September 20, 2015 at 11:53 pm #43934
More absurdity – a knife law in Philly as stated above, but they got preempted by the State on their gun law. Common man ain’t got a chance. Lesson? Just stay home, build your outer barrier topped with triple concertina wire, then your moats – and don’t travel anywhere outside your castle, assuming you live in a state that at least recognizes the castle doctrine. LOL. Thanks for the good chuckle, 74.September 21, 2015 at 12:16 am #43936
Never heard of a drive by stabbing . Just Sayin
