Texas Knife Laws?

Answer

The knife laws in Texas states that any knife that is five and half inches or longer is considered a weapon, and can not be concealed. Any knife under that length, which can include pocket knives, switch blades, and a butterfly knife are able to be concealed. Throwing knives are not legal to carry. It is perfectly legal to own any knife in your home. The legal issues are when one tries to transport the knife from their home to another location.
