I know this is a gun forum, but I'm certain most of us carry some form of blade. My EDC is a kershaw blur.I seem to recall reading somewhere that the legal blade length limitin WAis 3.5". Is this correct? I can't seem to find it in an RCW.
Most fixed blade knives are longer. So whats the deal?Can a person carry a 5" fixed blade knife in the open and not be hassled for breaking the law? Do any of you carry a blade longer than 3.5" ?
What prompted this question is that I ordered a gerber lmf ii asek knife last week and I intend to wear it when I go for hikes after work. The blade is over 4.5" long. If I am questioned by a LEO for OC my firearm and they notice that I am also carrying a blade longer than 3.5" could I be in hot water?
Thanks for any information!
