I normally carry a small folding knife on me for opening packages, cutting twine and whatnot. is there regulation against this?

If I recall correctly, anything except kitchen knives over 15cm is restricted.

Like most Korean laws, there is close to zero enforcement (until there is).

do you open a lot of packages or regularly cut twine outside of your home, OP?

No its fine to carry. I carry around a swiss army knife and always use it to open things, corkscrew wine, etc. if youre carrying around a blade longer than 15cm then u shouldnt be lol. And you shouldnt be carrying around a balisong.

Also spring loaded/semi spring knives like switchblades are illegal

I appreciate the info. I only ever carry the folding one, so I'm good (gotta be in the check bags though!)

The reason I know what I posted is a coworker has a Bowie knife (in checked bags) detained by customs. They held it for him, and he was able to collect it on his way out.

Guess I can bring over my pocket knife collection next time!  :P

Just kidding.  I'd only bring over one or two.  They're marvelously practical tools.
