Would I have problems if I use a Swiss Army Knife as a keychain?

I really like these swiss army knives with screwdrivers, scissors and so on, and i wonder if i would have have trouble using this knife as a keychain i mean police considered this a weapon too or not? Tell me please thank you.

Answer #1

You shouldn’t have any problems. Switchblades and similar knives are illegal, but Swiss Army Knives are more like utility knives and are not classed as “dangerous weapons”.

Answer #2

Unless you are planning on flying somewhere, or threaten someone with it, or are going into a school or job which has a ‘zero tolerance’ for such items, you should be fine.

Answer #3

I think in most states you are allowed to carry small closing knives with blades no more than 3 inches.
