    so since the lawyer that i'm going to today told me i can't bring a firearm, i figured i'd carry my knife. he didn't say anything about that.

    if i carry it on my leg with the belt through the loop and the string tied around my leg, would that be legal???

    The law abides only the law abiding.

    We often forget that the law often addresses weapons when we think only of firearms. The presence of an attorney suggests an adversarial process. Don't spit into the wind.

    Knives are not addressed in state law (except insofar as when they might be a concealed weapon.) You'd have to check the local ordinances regarding legality. Some communities prohibit certain blade lengths, or design style (e.g. no double-edge blades.) Others have no local ordinance whatsoever pertaining to knives.

    In light of the situation, I'd advise caution. The people you are dealing with are probably neither interested in nor impressed by your willingness to exercise your right to bear arms. On their property they can just as easily prohibit that knife as they can your gun.

    Good luck!

    Thank you for the positive and falsifiable statement.

    941.24 Possession of switchblade knife.

    Without me looking any further, "knife" is mentioned in six criminal statutes.

    I carry a folding knife that opens with a slight movement of my index finger.

    Movement, Geez, My Buck knife requires "movement" What a load of crapola. Who writes these laws. That was totally rhetorical.

    It requires "movement" to remove my hunting knife from it's sheath. This is the kind of lunacy we are up against in carrying any kind of weapon.

    That being said, I'd just do what the nice lawyer says. Pick your battles. Fight the ones that will pay off.

    Go for it, just loop it thru ur belt and stick it in your pocket with the handle sticking out, you may have to cut out the bottom of one of your pockets for that bad boy but once in place no one will be the wiser as to watcha got!I've got almost the same knife and Ido it all the time,you'll be fine.

    Now it's a concealed knife with a blade over 3" and it's time for Scorpio to go to jail if he gets caught.

    Negative. So long as the handle is visible, you could carry a machete if you wanted. And not trying to be an @$$hole here, but WI law is 3 and a quarter inch if you want to conceal. Altho I never got why that would matter seeing as if I everhad to use my knife in a self defense situation, my 3 1/4 incher can slash arteries just as well as a bowie can. Damn crap laws IMO

    I'm glad I figured out a way to get Doug to do his homework. This had nothing to do with switchblades. The important and non-trivial issue was that he needed to consult local ordinances rather than state law.
