    I will be traveling down to Arizona for a few weeks from ND for a winter vacation and I was just wondering if there are any laws prohibiting pocket carry/belt of a knife or if there is a legal blade length limit.

    I tried to read some of the jargon off of knife law sites but couldn't quite pull anything good out of it, one piece I thought said 3" or shorter, but I'm not quite sure.

    Anyone from the Gilbert/Mesa/Pheonix area know what's legal and what's not.

    I would like to carry either a Large Seb or a 3.5" XM on my belt in a sheath but I have a Mnandi just in case.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I will be driving so I don't have to worry about getting it there from a flight.

    Arizona laws actually have changed in the past 2-3 years. And the change was good. If you are 21 and over all knives are legal period. No limits, no restrictions on type, anything can be concealed. You can even carry a gun or a full sized katana and it's all nice and legal. Furthermore, the new laws overrides ("preempts") all local laws.

    Only regulation is that, if a cop asks you if you have any weapons, you have to declare you're carrying and what.
