Regarding knife carry, the USA is more restrictive with knives than even guns. In many states even if you have a concealed carry permit you cannot carry a knife with a blade over 3 inches (the concealed carry permit only applies to a gun). There is no 2nd amendment protection to the right to carry knives, so be careful. I would not carry one with a blade over 3 inches anywhere.

That’s pretty interesting. Given that knives are considered weapons, I’d argue that it is covered when the second amendment talks about “arms” (small arms, including firearms but blades too) not to mention that they are part of a “well regulated militia”.
Never the less, anyone knows which States have the best knife laws?
Which are the States with worse knife laws?
I’ve learned not long ago that “bowie” knives are illegal in Texas, at least carrying them. That’s crazy. I’m also curious about how they would even define a “bowie” given that even knife experts can’t make up their minds. A “bowie” could be anything from a clip point knife to a regular curved point knife like the Razin Bowie.
I’d feel naked without a knife. I’ve been carrying a big one with me for as long as I can remember, even in school (doubt thats ok in USA these days).
