There is some Internet site that had the knife regs from across the US. Some states are straight fwd while others like CT are mixed at best. As long as the blade is under 3.5" and your intent is good - all is well. (double blades are prohibited.)

Most criminals have gong to box cutters to avoid the legal BS.

I carry smith and Wesson knives for the same reason. They are well made and affordable. Big fan if their SWAT line. Plus I carry a s&w gun so it's nice that they match (because of my OCD).

I carry beat around knives. A gerber, a Schade, or a benchmade. Not the nicest or prettiest but I can shave you with them.

Ready for me to freak your OCD like a horny baboon with a butt fetish in a prison shower?

Smith and Wesson knives are Chinese.

OP, you want the perfect knife to suit your needs? Build it.

I'm aware of their origins overseas, but that's probably why they are affordable. Still a good knife for everyday. Plus what isn't made in china anymore?

Some are better than others and even priced the same. Schrade still has some American made models of better quality than can be found for as little as ten bucks. But, if you want took carry it, that's your business. I personally find it aggravating that such a reputable gun maker is so willing to slap their name on a cheap, and cheaply made, Chinese knife.

I have two knives in my pocket right now. One is a Gerber paraframe mini that costs 11-12 dollars at Wal-Mart, the other is an original bali-song (original benchmade before they became benchmade) that I lucked into for 5 bucks.

The Gerber is absolutely perfect for my work needs. Small, semi disposable, built like a tank. Not afraid to beat it up, but by looking at it, you can't tell the hell it goes through everyday because the quality is there.

The bali-song.... well hell, when you find a flashy, well built collectible knife valued at nearly $300, and it's offered to you for 5, you don't really need a good reason to carry it, especially when the current incarnation of the manufacturer still honors the warranty even though it was built no later than the mid 80's.

You inspired me to dig out my old smith hrt boot knife. Bought it years ago. It's worse for wear but still around. Put the sharpener to it and its good to go.

I need a fixed blade. I have a folder for everyday use. But in a self defense situation I can't deploy a folder left handed. I want something I can yank off my belt as a "get off me" tool
