I used to be paranoid about it but I'll flip anywhere I don't see police at this point.

Even in states you can carry it needs to be visible or otherwise it will be considered concealed. I live in Oregon and carry a BM51 but it has a clip therefore not concealed. Correct me if Im wrong on any of this

You are correct. But I will inform you of something that makes me think twice about carrying a bali, even in Oregon. years ago there was a protestor, I am not sure exactly what he did to get the cops attention. When arrested, he had a folding knife with a pocket clip, not a bali. Now I am going to get into a pretty bad argument that is just a slippery slope the whole way down. Since you can "flick" a pocket knife with a brownie pop or a simple flick of the wrist (even though it is not good for the knife :mrgreen: ), it was concidered a gavity knife. Now comes the scary part, the police argued that they could not tell that it was a knife from a distance, even though visable with a pocket clip, it could have been a cell phone case or a number of things with a pocket clip. It was also stated that the knife was covered by a sweatshirt, making this poor kid with a freaking folding knife is now charged with a concealed gravity knife.
I could argue about how wrong this is for days. But after hearing about this case, I usually carry folders, go figure :roll: . As long as you're not doing anything stupid... no cop in his right mind should a have problem with you, or a knife.
State of Oregon v. Michael James Coatney Appellate Court No. A132096

Do I stroll down a sidewalk while flipping? Nope. Do I carry a bali? rarely, just cant help it somedays :pirate1: Even though I have been playing with balis since I was a little guy, I still view them as scary to most other people. I treat mine with respect and understand that other people could find flipping intimidating.

Re: Do you flip publicly?

I will carry my bali on occasion, but not often. I have flipped outside, but not where there are a ton of random people watching, only where my friends were watching though I could be seen.
Seriously though if you wanted advice on how to fight.... go with the Bitch Slap as he won't be expecting that and it would be funny as fuck.

Re: Do you flip publicly?

I always carry my best knife with me if I leave the house.

I live in Alabama, I am pretty sure they are illegal here but that doesn't stop me.

I flip publicly regardless. At the park, hospital, parking lots, on school grounds, etc.

    finna. it means the state of a person/object/etc, as it will go to/perform in some way or another
  • 9:22
    in this case, I was already (going to), be late. which is common dialect but in its essence also improper verbage as you cant "go to" a time (unless you have a time machine).
  • 9:23
    so actually, I already (will) be late, as what I am attempting to convey is my present state of being, that being late. which, for what its worth, I was johny on the spot
  • 9:57
