I never gave much thought to it. I carry a Kershaw blur, it's not for defense, just convience

I recently got my ccw permit, am I asking for trouble carrying a legal firearm and an "illegal" pocket knife?

I sometimes do the same thing, less often lately. I feel like I'm pushing my luck.

Why would it be illegal? Assisted opening knives are not illegal in IL. Are they in Crook Co?

It's about blade length

Yeah, it's 3.5" around where I live(not cook thankfully). That said, I've been caught with a longer pocketknife without charges, just got it confiscated. Not sure id want to risk that with cpd though...

I try to avoid the conflict of blade length and keep it well under. I carry an Esee Candiru. 2" blade. Or some times I carry some form of Swiss Army knife just because of the way it is perceived.

I live in Cook, but not Chicago. I carry a Spyderco Delica, which has a 2.875" blade length. It doesn't have assisted opening.
