Neck knives? Are they ok to conceal? I'm talking about a small fixed blade knife hanging on a chain around my neck, in a sheath. How about a small fixed blade knife in my pocket, concealed? I can't seem to interpret the laws I've been able to find. I only commute to Las Vegas from Henderson, never go to NLV or Boulder City. Any clarification would be great! Please note that I don't carry any knife at this point because I'm unclear on the laws. Thanks! Eddie

AFAIK.
It is illegal to carry conceal any type of knife/dagger/dirk in NV.
Open carry is okay, conceal carry is not.

Maybe, CowboyKen can clarify the issue.

let me put it to you this way. If you carry even a steak knife in your pocket, you will be arrested for Posession of Dangerous Weapon, a gross misdemeanor.

Thank you, that's what I thought.

Clark County code specifies no knife with a blade 3" or longer. Under three inches is legal as far as I can tell, but that does not mean you will not be arrested. Good luck.
