http://pweb.netcom.com/~brlevine/sta-law.htm#S-W State knife laws link is above. How up to date it is is the question. Also there are some really old laws out there. Norfolk Va has a law against lock blade knives. I was stopped in 1973 and told to put my Buck in my pocket not out for view in the pouch, and not bring it out in public again. "You can carry a sword but not a lock blade." Norfolk Police. I never had a problem with my M28 S&W and the Virginis police. Go figure ?
