5 1/2" is the "Blade Length"....I believe the total overall length would be 12".

Penal Code 46.01 Definitions

(6) "Illegal knife" means a:

(A) knife with a blade over five and one-half inches;

(B) hand instrument designed to cut or stab another by being thrown;

(C) dagger, including but not limited to a dirk, stiletto, and poniard;

(D) bowie knife;

(E) sword; or

(F) spear.
If it's carried under different circumstances then the rules change.

You can carry an illegal knife if:

"(4) is engaging in lawful hunting, fishing, or other
sporting activity on the immediate premises where the activity is
conducted, or is directly en route between the premises and the
actor's residence, if the weapon is a type commonly used in the
activity;"

Yes that was my take on it too, just checking, where did the rumor of hand sized blade come from. Thanks

Who knows......I like the line, "I could kill you with a 4" blade just as fast as with a 5 1/2" blade.....So what's the difference?"
