Many knife laws contain a section on concealing knives. Which knives are included, and when is a knife “concealed?”
In the February issue of Knife Magazine, attorney and knife expert Dan Lawson explains how involved the answers to those two questions are in an article written for the American Knife & Tool Institute titled “Concerning Concealment.”
“In roughly half of the states in the U.S., there is generally no restriction as to which knives may be carried beyond one’s home, based on whether the knife is “concealed.” A problem presented for the people in the other half of the country, is that most knives typically carried beyond one’s home, are designed to be placed in a pocket or handbag – therefore, effectively concealed.”
