    For the record, I don't know of any CCW permits in the U.S. that apply to knives. CCW is very specific. On the other hand, if you're carrying a gun, who the hell needs a concealed knife.

    Sometimes you need to open boxes or split wire ... or not fire a gun @ someone yet cause them to die or seek immediat medical attention .

    That is like saying ... With grenades around who needs a knife or a pistol .

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. The point I was making was who needs a "concealed" knife. I was not intending to imply that I don't carry a knife when I carry a gun. I just don't need a concealed knife.

    I usually have two blades on me at any given time, one tactical, one practical. The practical one usually has <3" blade, so I can carry it concealed or not. If the other one is bigger, I carry it openly. In Ohio, as long as the pocket clip is visible, a tactical folder is not considered concealed. I don't know the law in other states, but that seems pretty standard with other places I have lived.

    If I remember correctly, any length folder is legal in CA as long as it is carried in the closed position. A folding knife isn't considered concealed in a pocket or under a jacket.

    Also, auto-openers under 2" are legal in CA. :)

    Well, the issue with "needing" a concealed knife is that an exposed knife can affect how the general public interacts with you, as well as attracting unwanted attention from law enforcement. Doesn't matter if it's legal, you're still gonna get a hard look. I have a folding knife clipped to my pocket or waistband almost constantly, usually covered by my shirt, and consequently I get no looks at all. Discretion is the better part of valor, and all that...

    As for what I like, I've been a fan of Strider Knives for a while now. Great group of guys, bombproof knives. They're expensive as hell, but you've REALLY gotta be trying if you want to damage them.

    Man, I would love to pick up a strider. I just can't see spending that kind of money on something that's going to sit in the closet 350 days of the year.

    Awesome, awesome blades, though.

    Buck/Strider has some good choices for the more frugal people. If you do a search you can find some deals on both folders and fixed blades.

    I'm pretty sure there are more than two states where switchblades are legal. Florida and Oregon are the only two off the top of my head, but I want to say Tennessee allows them too. California allows autos, but the blades have to be quite short, which is why you see little autos with 1.5-inch blades advertised as "California-legal automatics."
