    You would have to be a bit more thorough in that evaluation. Think of a person in your life who doesn't know anything about knives. Would they be able to look at it and know it's a knife? Better yet, put it in your pocket and ask them.

    Also don't engage in criminal behavior and thereby give the police a reason to be going through your pockets in the first place.

    I have debated many times whether to carry an auto knife since I would only do that if it had a pocket clip. Almost every thing I have read on this subject sounds like the very best way to avoid trouble is simply not doing anything that would call unwanted attention to yourself by a Leo.
