    Question about knives.

    Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask. Even though this site seems entirely centered around firearms, I figured this place would be the best to get a straight and accurate answer.

    Is anyone aware of any restrictions on open-carrying a knife in Portland? Specifically your standard K-Bar with a 7" blade. I was wondering because last time I checked there is a length restriction on concealed folding knives and it's been pretty annoying to find current or reliable information regarding blades as an open-carry.

    Thanks.

    Looks like the possession of a K-Bar would be unlawful in a Portland park, streetcar, or streetcar station. Interestingly, I don't see an exception to carry a K-Bar even for a CHL holder.

    I've always wondered why people think the second amendment is ONLY about firearms. Edged weapons are arms too. To this day, wearing a sword in uniform is "under arms".

    Where are the lawsuits demanding second amendment protections for the right to bear (edged) arms?

    Just wondering.
