And I don't mean for protection/as a weapon. I'm just wondering if anyone has ever encountered any problems (possibly by an over zealous cop or something) with accusations of a "concealed weapon" for having a knife in the tool kit. I was just listing things I may want to bring with me, and on this list I have a couple things I always take camping with me: small (2 inch blade) folding pocket knife that I keep on my person, and a McNett kayaking/outdoor fixed blade knife, that has a 3in blade with half of that serrated. The McNett would always be in with my tool kit unless in use. I'm just wondering if anyone has ever encountered any problems/issues like this. And like I said, it is NOT intended as a weapon, nor would I take it on a plane or anything like that. I'm just talking about bike touring(primarily in the U.S.) and having it put away in the panniers as a tool. I've never thought about it before, as when I'm off camping it's not like I'm traveling in populated areas so that is where my concern arises from.
