You guys sound tactical as fuck.
Ya Jymmie, how do you think New York Cities finest would feel about you carrying that kind of stuff with you? I have a rasp stuck in my map pocket, the guy who got it for me said if I have to use it get rid of it. They have serial #'s and this one will be traced to a state that"s not his or mine. Are they illegal still?

You pretty much can't even carry a pocket knife if it is folding. Gravity knives are illegal and the definition of gravity knife is very loose.

  • Swiss Army knife (Victorinox Spartan)
  • keys
  • phone
  • watch
  • handkerchief (surprisingly versatile for so much more than just blowing your nose!)
  • regional transit pass
  • 8 months of the year: raincoat, which invariably has a couple plastic bags in the pocket for picking up my dog's turds.
Yeah, I live in Seattle.
 
In my purse?
Saddleback large leather briefcase. I use it to carry all of the cash I earn as a Snap-On man :)

Speaking of legality of jack knives. On the way into Soldier Field in ~'91 or '92 for a Dead show, I had a passport pouch around my neck with my passport, cash, and a roll of stickers that said "Acid" on them, a vial of patchouli oil, and hanging from the zipper of the pouch was a tiny little LL Bean Swiss army knife,

Going through security, I got grabbed due to the knife...

I ended up in the bowels of Soldier Field. They confiscated my jack knife and threatened to arrest me for having a concealed weapon-concealed? They were more interested in the "ACID" stickers. One of the CPD cops asked me if we'd get high if we ate one. I looked him square in the eye and said "if you do, I'm gonna buy a LOT more from the Seton Name Plate Company".

They released me, but relieved me of my jack knife, roll of acid stickers and my vial of patchouli oil. I missed the first three songs of the show, but boy howdy did I have a story to tell-LOL.

In NYC when I got caught doing something I shouldn't have been (um, smoking something I shouldn't have been smoking) , they were far more worried about my friend from Jersey who didn't have an ID.

Well PT if you went with me I would have insisted you left the knife in the car. Cause We would not have wanted any fucking attention with what I would have had with me. As a matter of fact I was at the same damn place last July going in to see what was left of the band with some really good ......lets just call it skunk.
