Is it legal to carry a tanto around? I just purchased one not too long ago. the legal blade length is like 4 inches isn't it?
If you can't hack it, then I suggest you pack it!

I believe the legal length is 4.5 inches but I could be wrong. My blade stays with me in a bag or on my truck door when in civilization. In the wilderness I attach it right to my camelback.

actually it depends on your state....Dex...

in Oregon, we can have open carry knives, that are NOT concealed by clothing.......(folders and box cutters are exempt, if no longer than 4.5 inches blade)
its much akin to the gun laws, in the majority of the state of Oregon, we can open carry firearms, regardless of its loaded or not..(common sense says keep it unloaded, unless you're hunting with a permit)....but some cities ban open carry due to safety and theft issues....I would say the same goes for knives and swords....anything that's designed as a weapon, or hunting weapon, can be carried in the open out here in Oregon, so long as it is obviously attached to me, and obviously secured and in plain sight, then all thats doubtful is whether the context calls for it, or whether the location allows it. (banks and such usually prohibit weapons of any sort, as do most public buildings such as malls and city halls)
my suggestion is to contact your state police department, OR the city police department, and get it clear, in WRITING as well, and keep a copy of said papers anywhere you go, in case some buttholes decide to confront you on the whole open carry of knives or swords....I dont usually carry my 7 inch bladed Bowie, but i can if i wanted to..however, most people./sheeple are pretty scared of anything that resembles rambo's knives...

It's worse than just state dependent - different counties and cities have their own laws too.

In Minnesota, the whole thing is city-based.

My knives that are legal to carry around in my home city are not necessarily legal in others.


Of all the laws I've read across multiple states, the worst I've seen was 2.5 inch blade, and the best I've seen no limits.

No, the 2.5" limit is nowhere to be found in Minnesota. The worst city we have is 4" blade maximum length, and must be a folding variety.

The Claymore was a devastating weapon! Although the smaller swords were faster, a experienced swordsman with a claymore could have devastating effects on enemy's with smaller swords, the claymore could reach farther and that was superior advantage...

If we're talking medieval I personally like the Bastard Swords. Quite a bit faster and lighter than a Claymore, Greatsword, or other full sized 2-handed piece, but longer blade and handle than a long sword. Very flexible in its application.

Nothing wrong with a Claymore. High on the bad assedry list as well. :dodgy:

Have you seen Wallace's claymore? I mean the real thing. It's like 5'6" long.

I'm surprised this hasn't really come up yet, but a well balanced tomahawk coupled with a long knife (10-12in) can do some serious damage in close fighting. Neither weapon is specifically for offense or defense; both work exceptionally well for both disciplines. I'll admit that i've never fought with them, but i have been throwing both hawks and knives since about the time I could walk, and I've seen the damage that a sharp hawk can do to a hard madrone tree. I can only imagine what it would do to a person. That being said, I also have a simple Chinese broadsword that i love. In a fight, I'd take the hawk/knife combo, but you cant beat a sword for pure coolness.

Got to say german Landsknecht... learning to wield claymores and Greatswords for competition. Overall the thing is a monster 6'3 at 17 lbs.
