Is it a LEO exclusive item?
You'd be correct on the law, but some retailers only offer some products to LEO.

they are not illegal, it is illegal to conceal it . Thats where the pocket clip comes in .......so much visible out of the pocket deems it open carry . The LEO check is a store thing . You can buy an Infidel from Sportsman Medford with no checking .

Is that knife considered an automatic? I know optics planet ships this otf knife to OR unless something changed very recently.

Auto knives are legal to own and carry in Oregon. 'Concealed' carry is prohibited.
You can buy OTF's at many of the sporting goods stores.
On the net, try Blade HQ. Good prices, good dealings.

Keep in mind that knife laws are often even more convoluted than gun laws. Even if the state doesn't have a law against, say, OTF knives, individual cities may. So make sure you're checking the local laws of the cities you intend to traverse.

In other news it's astounds me that even though I may have a permit to carry a concealed handgun, it may be illegal for me to cary a certain type of knife. I'm pretty sure when our founders stated that, "the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed," they considered knives to be "arms." :rolleyes:
