Just purchased a Benchmade 808BK that was on sale at my local range. I really like the knife and following the advice of one of the guys behind the counter, I dismissed my concern about blade length. I live in a state with a 3.5" blade length limit for concealed knives and the Loco is 3.68" according to online stats. The guy behind the counter referenced what I have heard over the years in how police officers measure the blade length against the palm of their hands to determine whether or not you are in violation of the law. Not being the trusting sort, I would rather alter the length of this blade by filing off 0.19" of the tip and re-profiling the edge to comply with state law. I wouldn't consider doing this if the knife weren't such a perfect fit for my intended use. At any rate, have any of you modified a pocket knife to comply with state or local laws?
