shabbat 130

knives for a shabbat circumcision should be carried uncovered.

but wouldn't it be safer to always carry them covered, despite the political context

(this chapter discusses performing circumcision on shabbat. it begins with R. Eliezer saying that one should carry the knife uncovered on shabbat. but if it is dangerous to do so, because there is a decree banning circumcision, then one should carry the knife covered. for english translation of this page, see here)
