It certainly could be considered a knife but of all the choices I think it's probably the least likely to cause a problem. It takes a little time to open and wouldn't look like much of a weapon to a jury. More like something a Boy Scout might carry, in fact I started carrying it along with a flashlight when we were camping. I've thought about getting one of the knives that clip on your pocket and open with a thumb but that would look like more of a defensive weapon.
