    I see no difference in concealed vs non-concealed knives in Texas law. As long as the blade is 5-1/2" or less, you're Ok unless you're in a town with a local ordinance.

    I have a question for this. I know the law is 5.5 no matter fixed of folder.

    BUT..I have met people who have seen my LFK (5.2) and tell me its illegal and they know (more then one person has told me this)

    My question is what do you tell people who are stubborn about telling you its illegal to carry a knife larger then your palm/5.2 folder?

    I usually start to ignore them walk away while I keep an eye on them. And have started carrying two. a small knife (3 inchs) and my lfk or other large folder not shown to anyone.

    You're right, if you are within the law, ignore them.

    The problem is that state laws vary tremendously on knives. They are confusing Texas State law with most others. Then throw in CCW covering knives in some states and that makes it more confusing. Here in Colorado it is 3.5 inches for concealed and that sounds like what they are quoting.
