I never have gotten a clear answer on knife laws in Nebraska. From what I understand, blades up to 3.5 inches are legal at the state level, but only 3" in Omaha?
Do those only apply to "concealed" knives? I see a lot of folks walking around with knives that easily exceed those measurements, but they are clipped inside their pocket so part of the knife is partially visible, or are carrying a fixed blade attached to their belt (yes, in Omaha, walking around a grocery store).
So, can anybody here enlighten me? If I have a 3.5" buck knife in my backpack and get stopped in Omaha, am I screwed? What if it's in my pocket, or clipped to my pocket and partially visible?
That's what I do.

I usually just buy knives that are exactly 3.5" or less in blade length, with a pocket clip.
