  • Restrictions on Carry 
    • It is illegal to conceal or open carry any knife with a blade over 5.5 inches’ long
    • It is illegal to conceal or open carry throwing stars or any type of throwing knife
    • It is illegal to conceal or open carry dirks, daggers, stilettos, and other stabbing knifes
    • It is illegal to conceal or open carry a bowie knife
    • It is illegal to conceal or open carry a sword or spear
  •  Butterfly and Switchblade Knifes
    • In 2005, in an unpublished decision, the Texas Court of Appeals found, in Cook v. State, that a butterfly knife fell within the statutory definition of a switchblade, and was therefore illegal to possess or carry. However, because the law which made switchblade knives illegal was repealed in 2013, butterfly knives are now legal to own in Texas.
