so do I.


but I'd never whip it out or allow it to be seen on the subway or in front of NYPD. Even when I go to Manton's parties, my knife bag is out of sight and out of mind.

As the cop asked Bisco's friend to empty his pocket I am assuming the knife was not visible? IDK. Maybe I don't want to visit NYC if I have to be in this sort of fear of a police interaction. I mean my hands are deadly weapons.

If the knife is legal to own and carry (as it seems to be), the guy doesn't need a good reason to carry it. On the contrary, the cops need a good reason to bother him.

the knife wasn't visible, a random "empty your pockets!!" isn't going to happen. Odds are the police saw the clip plus the blunt end and asked WTF is this. And don't worry, nobody is anticipating a Piob visit to NYC.

a good point. If carrying this type of thing is just "what you do in the trade", then you would probably also carry a maritime student/license ID as well. The NYPD sucks at times, and I have been on the receiving end of "you shut your mouth!" after rolling my eyes and screaming fuck on a rare routine subway bag search (I had just missed a train!), but as much as they suck there's good reason to STFU and explain why you have what you have.

I doubt he is anticipating one either. Nor am I.

I don't know why I'm not arrested. I'm a black belt in karate and seriously lethal.

I agree. Moreover, the idea that you can be arrested and face a pretty serious charge for carrying an ordinary pocket knife, in your pocket, is crazy. This seems like abuse - particularly since the charge is under an old law for a particular type of "attack" knife, which this knife is clearly not.

Who makes a law about an "attack" knife? What the heck is an attack knife? Any dagum knife can be an attack knife.

The law he was charged with bans "Gravity Knives", which were a kind of switchblade where the knife blade is deployed by gravity (you hold it upside down and release the catch and the blade pops out and locks). They were used for knife fighting (though had their origins with the Luftwaffe as escape knives), which is why a law was passed to ban them. The NYPD applies that old law to ordinary folding knives, presumably to pad arrest stats not because anyone is fighting with them.
