    I quit going to NY, they have deeper pockets than I do and you can't trust every NY cop you meet.

    Friction folder is fine--the lock must be part of the mechanism of the knife. I'm just as displeased with the interpretation of the laws in NYC as you are, and I bought a Morris friction folder for the sole purpose of city carry. Small sebenza everywhere else!

    I would, and do, carry a slip joint instead of any type of locking folder. For 1 hand opener, have you looked into the Spyderco slipit line like the UKPK? I'd take the pocket clip off of it if you do as well. Here are 4 slipits. The 2nd and 4th are mine, 1 and 3 were part of a recent passaround. 2 UKPKs, a Byrd Tern and an Urban.

    if i'm taking a bunch of trains and/or hanging out in manhattan, my opinel #8 is one of my favorite go to EDC's.

    the blade is locked closed, so they can't say it's a gravity knife
    the blade is under 4", making it legal length

    p.s. my knife is always carried in my pocket.

    always remember to conceal the knife. ANY KNIFE THAT IS EXPOSED IS ILLEGAL.

    Any and all knives must be concealed in NYC.

    Deep pocket carry. Most of these have wire clips which I believe would be hard to see but I took the clips of of mine so that there can be no question as to whether it was exposed in that way.

    Deep pocket carry is the only safe carry in NYC. As noted, do not ever carry a knife clipped to your pocket in New York City. Do not ever carry a knife that could be seen, including the clip, if your jacket or shirt were moved aside. This is a uniquely NYC administrative code, concealed carry is required, open carry is illegal, and this is an invitation to arrest in NYC today. Also, make sure your knife does not "print" on the outside, as that could invite a stop and frisk event with NYPD.
