    Not 100 percent sure, but I dont think it matters unless it is going to be concealed. Im sure others might know better.

    Washington folders should be less than 3". I don't know how strictly they enforce that one though, probably depends if the person was being a troublemaker otherwise.

    This is good news, I can carry my Lightfoot Compact Combat in Seattle! Thanks for the list. A Monroe police officer had advised me that 3" was it for Washington, and I believed it! ha ha.
