    Knife People

    Knife laws here in Buckeye Country are vague, and vary greatly from municipality to municipality. Talked to one of our local LEO's the other day about knives and what could or couldn't get me in trouble. Here auto knives, assisted open, and locking blades are pretty much a no go. He also said it's kind of a judgement call on the LEO's part. That if the Officer in question feels the knife is too large or intended for something other than a "utility" purpose they could pop you for carrying it.

    I find myself in need of decent knife lately. Something better than the Doctor's Knife I currently keep in my pocket, but not as extreme as the Kabar I carry while hunting. I'm thinking something fixed blade, similar to a Drop Point, with a 3 - 3 1/2in blade max. The local Outdoorsman stores have nothing for me, nor do any of the knife sites I've found on Google. Anyone out there know of any better sites for knives than what the web search turns up?

    Thanks for any help that can be offered.

    For a common folder that has only peacefull uses.. Try a Klein tool electricians knife. If you need something more substantial they make something called a "duct knife" Made for cutting tin ductwork... Scary Scary looking knife.

    What if you aren't near an electrical outlet?

    Buck paklite skinner. Very nice blade, slim, but good ergos, and decent steel. Also made in USA. You can find one for around $20, and the reviews are positive.

    In SC I don't think there are any restrictions state-wide, but in Greenville County you are limited to a 3 inch blade.
    LEO's here won't worry about it much unless they pop you for something else and begin to inspect you.
    Shouldn't be hard to find, I got most of mine on ebay or gunbroker. Gun & knife shows are ridiculous.
    Don't know how much you're wanting to spend. Check these out: anza knife | eBay

    Smokey Mountain Knife Works, they carry just about every knife under the sun. Just Google them. There store is 3 stories high and My so loves to go there. Last time I was there I purchased a Boker Investagator which is a drop point but its a lock blade. Hope this helps.

    There is a solar powered version.


    The knife laws in Oregon can be confusing. Auto open and assisted open knives are legal as long as they are not concealed. There is no definition of concealed, so it is up to the law enforcement officer. Some people believe it is not concealed if the clip is visible. When I cross the river into Washington State, auto open and assisted open knives are illegal, so I have to remove them.

    Speaking of knives, people; there is a bill proposed in the US house of Representatives called KOPA. Like FOPA, it would allow transport of knives from state to state, much like firearms are now (supposedly).
