Hi everyone. I would like to purchase a Swiss army knife for personal use. I don't intend to use it for self defense, but I intend to use it for small repairs and other miscellaneous things like opening bottle caps, cutting ropes and wires, etc.
My worries are that these are all lockable blades and that the smallest one is 2.5 inches in length. I tried looking for some information online but There must be some sort of restriction or law that must punish carrying smaller blades like this. I intend to carry it in my pocket and only use it when needed. I don't get in trouble with the law, but in case I get pulled over for example, and the cop searches my car and finds the blade, what would happen?
