That's exactly my point. The officer can arrest by his interpretation of the law, but if it's legal and you can prove it or the AG/PA doesn't press the charges, then it don't mean squat. "They are simply aggresive looking knives and I doubt one can find just cause for carrying one, unless one is a fisherman with an armload of nets for example. They don't seem a practical choice for a person to carry in an urban environment unless its a confrontational one - SD or as an aggressor." The looks of any knife is simply a matter of opinion. The majority of people unfamiliar with SD knives or knives in general feel anything more than a butter knife is agressive. If it's legal is all that matters. Mine or any others reasons for carrying it is likely SD since that's what the blade was designed for, and that's reason enough, or simply because it's legal and you just want to cause you like it. I've carried a handgun a folder and often a fixed blade everywhere everyday for over half my lifetime, know how many people I've confronted, threatened, or assaulted? None. You don't have to have a reason to carry a knife or even a gun, it just has to be legal and you want too. Shouldn't even have to be legal in all honesty, you should be prosecuted for committing a crime, not before or based on an irrational fear.
