How big a knife can you legally carry?
 
In Texas we can carry knives with blades no bigger than 5.5 inches. Does not have to be concealed. Curious as to other states laws

In Virginia, you can carry a sword if that floats your boat. Non-folding knives of ANY length may not be carried concealed. A folding knife with a cutting edge of 3.25 inches or less is considered an item of gentleman's apparel or a tool, and may be concealed. Longer than that- open carry (belt case, etc)

Michigan firearm laws are screwy... they are a mere shadow of the screwiness surrounding knifes + each city is allowed to set their own rules to boot.

Ive read that there is no illegal lenght as long as you are carrying the knife in a legal manner. I always carry a four inch uncle henry and i have never had a problem. Didnt know its up to the city to set rules on knives. Learn something new everyday.

Here in S.C. It has to be under 2"

In Tennessee, the blade length can be up to 4 inches.

Here in Utah any lenth is legal. I care my 7" bowie 90% of places I go.

I don't think there is one here people carry full sized bowies, me personally I don't carry something that big unless I'm out camping but I do carry my 5 1/2" skinning knife around with me for just every day purposes, I mean I can see why some places might have blade size limits I mean they don't want everyone carrying fighting knives around with them.

The local knife laws here are 6 inches with justification with in city limits, if its concealed. If its not concealed I've heard of guys strapping kukris to their legs. Though I do carry a tomahawk in my backpack sometimes but that is with the justification of it being a rescue tool as I have modified the point on my SOG Fast Hawk to go through auto glass easier now.

In Colorado you can carry any length if exposed. Concealed has a blade limit oF 3 1/2".
