Interestingly balisongs are legal, and cannot be considered gravity knives in NYC. I have a 3" Benchmade which is theoretically completely legal except for one little detail in the statute that says "or any dangerous knife," effectively putting the matter entirely within police and judicial discretion. I don't bother carrying in NYC. I'm more afraid of police than of the criminals.
