    I'm 16 and all of my friends carry pocket knives concealed. I think that is legal but I'm not a fan of pocket knives I'd rather carry a 7" Ka-Bar at my side. That way i might not even have to use it.

    I'm not sure about AZ, but to be on the safe side
    be sure you're not involved with any illegal activity
    while carrying.
    No loitering or drinking or those type of things.
    ....OK....I'll use google for a sec....
    well, I looked here

    you need to pay close attention to chapter 31, look under minors and also storage

    if you happen to know any law students or if any parents that are lawyers
    show them the link and chapter 31 and ask for help.

    Be sure to study the ARS under weapons and know the stuff chapter and verse yourself.
    stay gold!

    good luck, unless they're are local restrictions I don't believe
    you're breaking any laws.
    I'm just a guy on the internet though, not a lawyer!
    As long as your not engaged in any illegal behavior you'll
    probably be ok. If you're in a smaller town you might call
    up the city/county attorney and ask if there is any local
    laws. Maybe google your town and knife law and see what pops up.

    You carryin' this blade as a fashion statement or a 'tool'? 'Ever been inna knife fight? You don't want'a be... trust me. All your friends do this or that... so? If you have a valid reason to carry the knife... do it. If no reason... don't do it.

    I respectfully disagree Sonora Rebel, 16 years old is certainly
    old enough to, A: be a victim of a crime, B:carry a knife.
    A K-Bar would be better then a folder in a fight, he isn't old enough to carry a gun
    and no one should have to give a "reason" to exercise their rights.
    Plenty of 16 year old's died in the Revolutionary war, fighting for a Bill Of Rights, not a bill of "reasons" to enjoy these rights.
    Society lets 16 year old people drive cars, a lot more deadly then a knife!
    My uncle gave me a machine gun at 17. (uncle sam).

    Personally, I would carry a folder, but that wasn't the topic.

    LOL i wish i had the nads to do that but no what happened was i was in the parking lot at the mall putting stuff into my trunk this mexican stands right behind me and sticks his hand in my pocket trying to take my wallet so i turned around and pulled out my knife and hes got a mac-11. I thought I was dead. So I really didn't have anywhere to run. I called the cops but I had no idea who this guy was so good luck finding him.

    Haven't you ever heard the saying, "Never bring a knife to a Gunfight"?

    Yes, many times. I would carry a handgun but I am not old enough. I don't know why I didn't stab him in the throat I would have loved to but I guess I'm just not mature enough to be in control of a situation like that.

    'Cause you'd be a dead teenager with a knife in your hand. 'Sure that MAC-11 wasn't an Airsoft look-alike? Not usually the weapon of choice for a street mugging. So... what' theBeanerMacget?

    ubertrunks, I'm on your side so please don't take this wrong.
    You had very poor situational awareness, carrying stuff from the store
    to your car is one of the most common places to get victimized.
    Also you need to google "Tueller drill" believe it or not, at the distance you described
    a knife is better then a gun!
    I recommend you take mix martial arts or something of that nature, you
    need more then a weapon. ( everyone does, not you personally)
    If you're prepared, then the most dangerous weapon is the one you
    always have, a brain.
