There is no blade length in PA, however......cities like Philly may have some type of law/ordinance in place.
Carrying something like a folding Buck knife is one thing, having a USMC Kabar knife on your side might get you charged with a "prohibited offensive weapon"......if your walking around in the city. Whether or not the charge would stick is another matter.
Walking around in the woods wouldn't get you a second look.
I always, always carry some type of pocket knife with me. Doesn't matter if I'm in the woods or not.
Nothing quite like injecting (error ridden) politics into a simple question. Gotta take any and every opportunity, right?Harrysigafoo said:Actually, new federal (Obama administration)regulations make a none switch blade (switchblade =s pring loaded to open when button pushed) into a switchblade IF it has a blade open assist stud. That means the little knob found on lock back knifes that most of todays knifes, are now classified as switchblades under federal regulations.
How this will impact state enforcement isn't know yet.
