    Oregon knife laws?

    I am traveling to Portland next month with the wife. As Oregon doesn't recognize Ks. CCW licenses (we do theirs, go figure). I wanted to know what their laws are concerning knives, Concealed of? Blade length allowed? I would appreciate any help from those in the know.

    Best is always to check a State's Attorney's General site for all weapons info, then send them an email and keep their response with you, as their response is legally binding.
    I never enforced a knife law in my entire career unless it was used on someone.... (me, more than once).
    It is overkill, but will CYA.

    PatriOt's ^^^^ advice should be easy enough. Oregon State Attorney's General phone number: (503) 378-4400 Also this ORS Chapter 166 - Offenses Against Public Order; Firearms and Other Weapons; Racketeering - 2011 Oregon Revised Statutes and pertaining to concealed weapons find ORS166.240 Off to side you'll find some rulings http://www.knifeup.com/oregon-knife-laws/

    Hope this helps.
