Thread: Legal knives for Concealment

  1. #1

    Legal knives for Concealment

    I am unclear about knives appropriate for concealment. I have a 4.25" blade on a Balisong and a Benchmade Infidel 3300, double edge automatic. Are these legal for carry and defense?

    I have a CWP for FL.

    Thanks, everyone!

    They can both be legally carried under your License.

    It is my understanding that with a CWL, you could shove a katana down your pants and/or wear a trenchcoat to cover it and be legal.
    I am not a lawyer. Nor do I play one on TV. Anything I state is my opinion only and is not meant to be any type of true legal advice. If you need legal advice, seek a lawyer, that's what they get paid to do.

    while we are on the knife subject what about open carry of a knife.
    The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjected people to carry arms. " March 18, 1938 Adolph Hitler

    I tried that once but it was much more comfortable clipped to my pocket.

    Great question!

    To add to that question: if it's in a holster/sheath, is that considered concealed.

    Not necessarily. As the state has not pre-empted the field of knife regulation, local ordinances may apply.

    A number of local jurisdictions' ordinances can be found on Municode. [ http://www.municode.com ]
