Thread: Maine Concealed Knife Laws?

  1. Maine Concealed Knife Laws?

    I am having trouble understanding Maine knife laws. I have seen the whole "Hunting, fish molesting" information, but it's too vague.

    I have a KA-BAR TDI self defense knife that I would like to conceal clipped to my belt underneath my untucked shirt. This has a 2.5" fixed blade.

    Also are spring assisted folders illegal in maine?

    I have my concealed firearms permit and that seems more straightforward.
