    Don't conceal a fixed-blade, that's instant felony.

    Under 2" is fine for auto knives etc, but honestly what's the point?

    A standard 3"-ish folder, clipped in your pocket, will be completely fine, unless you run into a cop who knows about some obscure local ordinance and is determined to fuck you over.

    Odds are, that won't happen. Most cops aren't worried about a folding knife clipped into your pocket, as long as you don't go suddenly reaching for it or anything.

    Stick to a standard Spyderco, Cold Steel, CRKT, Benchmade (not Bali-Song though), et al. and you'll have no problems.

    I doubt anyone will even notice it.

    We can't CC for the most part in CA, but atleast we dont NEED to CC because of how shitty a place we live in.

    As long as it is a folding blade, I do not believe there is any regulation on its size.

    This may vary according to local ordinances. And as long as it's not an auto-opener, gravity knife, bali-song, etc.

    I carry a Benchmade 9050 daily and live in IL and have never had an issue. Although I dont pull it out in front of every cop I see though
