The "general rule" would be that, unless you were "impersonating an *******" or the LEO was in a particularly foul mood and looking for someone to bully, it's pretty unlikely that he'd ask to see it and equally unlikely he'd be checking it with a ruler if he did. My experience with LEOs is that 80% of them are quite decent unless you really go out of your way to push their buttons, 10% can be decent or not, depending on their mood, and the other 10% should be in jail themselves.jackknifeh wrote:Thanks Deacon. I can see where the question is vague but your answer did cover a lot of what I'm curious about. Trying to be less vague let's say I had a 3 1/4" blade knife in my pocket where 3" is the maximum legal size. An LEO saw the knife clip in my pocket and asked to see it. I'm sure different areas have different laws and punishments. I guess I was curious if I could be arrested and hauled to jail just for having it in my pocket or just given a ticket like for speeding. No crime is being committed, I could be just standing waiting for a cab or something.
What shop was this?jzmtl wrote:I know in one case, a small shop in NYC (before the recent fiasco) was raided by cops and have most of his knives taken. One day a cop brought a knife for him to sharpen, and that turned out be one of the knives that was "confiscated".
