Therefore, if you carry knives do it for other purposes besides SD. If you happen to need it for SD then so be it, but if the State can prove you carried it with the intent to use it in SD you are in trouble.
This is an altered version of the original text of Anderson, which gives an erroneous impression.

The original text is as follows:
Quote:
A person may carry a utility knife for its use as a weapon where the person's intent merely is to display the knife in the belief that the display will deter aggressors, without any intent to inflict bodily injury.
For context, the def in Anderson had a utility knife, three little zip lock bags, and a bar of soap. It was obvious he was making fake crack cocaine to sell, but he stuck with the story that the knife was for his job. The goal of charging him with a weapon crime was to find something to charge him with since they could make any other crime stick. It was a massive stretch, which failed as he was acquitted.

You want the long and short of Maryland law on knives with all the citations, check out my site: http://weaponlaws.wikidot.com/maryland-knife-laws

State statue 7.467 sub paragraph c, says, if you are legally carrying a knife, and another person pulls a knife on you, you must first reply in an Australian accent,

I'm sure it would but after 50 years in construction, the Contego handles are fine for me as is. My hands are beat-up and on the hard side....like my head!

Automatic knives

I carry a "spring assisted flipper" knife with a 3.5" blade clipped to my right front pants pocket every moment of my life...

It's a KERSHAW, a very good piece of steel & I keep it razor sharp...

"Officer I use it daily for my work to open boxes as new goods arrive"...

The clip is small but visible on my pants"...

I've never had a comment from a Law Enforcement Officer...

From what I have heard, a cop, may simply confiscate a "switch blade" if there is a question of why you have it...

I'd be interested seeing a letter from MSP or the Attorney General.
But thanks.

Here, this is from the Maryland General Assembly's official government website, where the most current laws are kept as well as bills:
http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/mgawebsit...nactments=true

Scroll down to part (b) and then paragraph (3) after that.

That is state law as written and is as official as your going to get. Your letter from MSP should be considered in context: Yes, the permit only covers handguns. But the law says, as a holder of the permit, you are exempt from 4-101's prohibitions.
