I live in medford oregon and carry a piranha mini-guard. I recently did some work with a local (unnamed) police agency. During my time they informed me that the blade was in fact illegal to carry. Even though sportsmans wearhouse and another local store sells them and says they are completely legal to carry. I don't want to get arrested for having an illegal weapon. So can someone help me out on this? Perhaps another oregon police officer or someone who knows the ORS pretty well. They also said that carrying a knife on the inside of my pocket with the clip facing out was concealed. any information would help, thanks.
