Blade length restrictions add to the confusion of knife laws, law interpretation, and how to stay compliant in your own community, state, and when traveling.
In the October issue of Knife Magazine, attorney and knife expert Dan Lawson examines “The Long and Short of It” regarding blade length restrictions in various states.
Knife carry restrictions based on blade length are common across the United States. Distinctions that derive from a measurement – as opposed to name or type classification such as poniard, dirk, or bowie – offer a higher level of objectivity or predictability.
A big thank you for the continued support of Knife Magazine for continuing to allow AKTI to provide valuable knife law information to their readers.
