PER CURIAM

PER CURIAM

Defendant appeals his conviction for carrying a concealed weapon, ORS 166.240. He assigns error to the trial court's denial of his motion for a judgment of acquittal. According to defendant, the knife he was carrying was not a "dirk" or "dagger" for purposes of the statute. The state concedes that, under State v. McJunkins, 171 Or App 575, 15 P3d 1010 (2000), the evidence was insufficient to support defendant's conviction. We agree and accept the state's concession.

Reversed.
