Keeping a pocket knife

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it sunnah for a male to carry a pocket knife? Is it sunnah for a female to carry a pocket knife?


A: The word that appears in certain narrations is ‘miqraadh’ which means scissors. We did not come across a narration regarding a pocket knife.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
