I live in Texas and was looking for a knife to buy. My choice is limited since Texas only allows a few types of knives. One of them is the folding knife.
I found some online and they say they are folding knives but I just wanted to make sure they were legal. The law says the blade can't be over 5 1/2 inches.

I'm only looking for cheap ones since I don't want to use up too much money right now.

If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?

Long blades automatics and daggers are no go for Texas. These are perfectly acceptable.

Sec. 21-17. Certain knives prohibited generally; exceptions; penalty for violation.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to intentionally or knowingly carry on or about his person a knife with a blade less than five and one-half (5 1/2) inches in length, which knife is equipped with a lock mechanism so that upon opening, it becomes a fixed blade knife.
I'm talking about Houston. I checked the houston laws and all it added to the knife laws was that I can't be around property that is in possession of the city.
Also is there a certain age where I can hold a knife?
To clarify, these laws are specifically regarding carrying, right? Not just ownership?

AFAIK there is no age requirement,but don't get caught carrying it to kindergarten for show and tell,or you'll lose finger painting privileges for a week

Houston... we have a problem!!
...for sure...we need to get enough backing to pass a pre-emptive law on knives and blow all the little quirks out of the laws...and clearly define things like dagger, dirk, stiletto, Bowie knife...let a fella know where he stands...
...better yet...wipe out all the prohibitions and start legislating the ACTIONS of folks what misuse 'em!!! now THERE'S a novel idea...
