From calling HPD directly about 5 years ago, they told me there was no restriction on blade length. Specific types of knives are prohibited, such as daggers, switchblades, butterflies and those others listed under the HRS. My friend's 23 yr old son started carrying his Cold Steel Kopis machete in his backpack after that. I personally like to carry 2 Spyderco Street Bowies, one on each side. I personally think a long blade like a machete will be too slow to deploy in most self defense situations, although it would be great if it was already in your hand.
