Well, over some internet browsing, the only definition of "illegal knives," according to texas law, are:

(6) "Illegal knife" means a:
  (A) knife with a blade over five and one-half inches;
  (B) hand instrument designed to cut or stab another by
   being thrown;
  (C) dagger, including but not limited to a dirk, stiletto,
   and poniard;
  (D) sword; or
  (E) spear.

It says the exact same thing on other sites, so I assume this is taken out of Texas law. It says nothing on butterfly knives. Also, 5.5" is  pretty big blade...

tl ; dr

read your original post though
my brother just bought a Benchmade Infidel, amazing knife, because he's active duty.  They lady who worked at this store said that she was buying one with her husband before he retired later that year.  Basically to purchase one you must be active duty, getting caught with one on the other hand...

As for the e-penis stuff, you guys should know by now that I've always been modest here.

I also forgot to ask, is blade length considered just the sharpened portion, or the entire blade assembly?

If I found one of those bent in the street, I'd be too busy wondering how it got like that.

Look up the specific laws for your state, they vary. Not only that, but many laws for states are very unclear about butterfly knives specifically. Texas for instance, includes gravity knives, but dances around the subject of butterfly knives.

Word to the wise, Never use a knife for self defense unless your trained in knife fighting. If not you have a high chance of getting stabbed by your own knife

What do you mean by "punks"?

Also be careful, your e-penis's tip is showing from the bottom of them shorts you got on.

Hey, you're a cop. If you caught someone with a butterfly, not threateningly, but just had one, what would the consequences be?

But ignoring motives, anyone know what can happen if you are carrying one?
