There is no standard issue knife, however officers are permitted to carry a knife for use as a tool, provided it fits into the following categories:
- It must be a folding knife; no fixed blades
- It must have a blade of 4" or less
- It must be carried on the person in an inconspicuous, place which is difficult for a subject to grab
- It may not be carried on the duty belt in a holster
I carry a Spyderco Endura4 with a stainless steel handle and VG-10 steel blade. It rides in my right hand front pocket and is obstructed from sight and reach by the barrel portion of my pistol holster. I also carry it in my pocket daily off-duty. Fantastic knife.
