    I was just wondering...a few years ago I was bored one weekend and sharpened the back of an old machete. I used a stone, so it is decently sharp. Is this illegal in OR or WA to carry in a case, in a duffle in the trunk?

    Its illegal to carry concealed on your person. In Oregon as to the truck of your car no since you do not have access to it from the pass compartment.

    like mark said..... and some places in the country it's a felony to posess a double edged blade. Also varies from county to county in some states. even if not illegal most leo's will look at you with curiosity, if they discover it.

    Exactly. Which is why I asked.

    I grew up in NY where a double edge blade was illegal, no matter the length. Even a baseball bat with a ball and glove was reason to give a kid a hard time.

    For me, it's in my "get home" bag with other, similar, off the shelf items.

    Oregon is very knife friendly. Thats why we can have autos and balisongs. Just make sure at least the clip is showing. For a machete or ax, I would keep in trunk.

    Thank you. It's in the trunk, in a duffle, totally out of reach. OR has good laws - I like this place.

    I've been in Oregon for seven years now....I have no clue why friends/family in WNY choose to stay there.

    Cool, you should go cheak out Benchmade knives in Oregon City. Especially their black class.
