Here's what I found on Texas law:


(e)  The provisions of Section 46.02 prohibiting the 
carrying of an illegal knife do not apply to an individual carrying 
a bowie knife or a sword used in a historical demonstration or in a 
ceremony in which the knife or sword is significant to the 
performance of the ceremony.
