All that matters is if the act of using a large fixed blade to section a pizza was a spectacle in the eyes of the property owner, which it appears that it was. Unless you live under the "gnat line," I opine that you'll likely get a similar response at many a place.
Where do you live btw? I have been curious ever since your post about the roughness of your neighborhood, a lack of PD response to calls for service there, and the perceived need to carry seven knives.

I am not at liberty to say where,only that you can think Auburn.Wheeling.Southside.TIPs old neighborhood.I got involved with bad stuff,and am in the process of moving back home to north Georgia.Not much police response up here either when you live 15 miles from town.
So let me see if I understand this. In Georgia you are issued a permit to carry a weapon be it knife, gun or whatever?
I must really be behind the learning curve here.
I live and work in a war zone and don't carry seven knives hell I don't even carry a big fixed blade. Glocksin you can't post a topic like this then get defensive when members question what you did. If someone whipped out a big fixed blade in my presence I would be watching them closely wondering what they were doing. I am not knocking you, carry and do what you want to do but whipping out a Kabar length knife in the middle of a bowling alley and then wonder why you attracted attention? I have seen very few problems that could not be solved with a normal pocket knife from cutting pizza to self defense that would not cause nearly the hoopla that a big fixed blade would. But to each his own.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
Is it too much trouble to ask the propietor for a rolling pizza cutter or a butter knife to handle the pizza?
You had to whip out a hog sticker you carry for defense and then argue with management over legal technicalities of concealed carry?
Wait, you used a 7” Rambo knife to slice a pizza in a public establishment?
By all means carry it where ever it’s legal, but use common since!
"Brandishing" is a matter of intent, not just exposure. It must be used or exposed in a threatening manner to be considered brandishing. Reaching for an item on the top shelf and inadvertantly exposing your concealed IWB firearm/knife is not brandishing. Pulling back your shirttail to reveal your holstered firearm to warn off someone can certainly be considered brandishing.
Common scense should prevail, and in this case, I don't think it did. In trying to step forward and make a point, the OP took two steps back for all of us.

But i dont see how it was threatening.Im trying to better understand the thinking here.
If you were my friend and you pulled it out I'd probably of smacked you upside the head and told you to put it away. It's just not appropriate.
Do you also pull out your ccw to help someone pound in a loose nail?
who whips out a 7" fixed blade knife indoors to cut pizza?
Chainsaws work well on pizzas too.
