    Is it legal (in Ohio) to wear a knife like this just out and about in public? The blade is fixed 5". Thanks UMB

    I have without consequence. Don't know if there is any law against it.

    Depends on the local gov't.

    I know in Cleveland 3" folding is the limit. My memory is foggy
    if there is a non-folding knife limit or just an outright ban on carry.
    But in Ohio in general I don't believe there is a limit.
    Last time I went camping I had a 7" Becker C/U 7 on me and
    no one said anything.

    The big thing is that it can't be concealed.

    You should look that up for yourself just to make sure that some poodle in a cheerleader costume isn't giving you legal advice.

    I found the current laws.........

    I don't speak much legaleezee, but from what I can get out of it , the concern is based more on concealment than on blade length. There do seem to be some specifics on blade length for Cleveland

    No not bet your freedom on legal interpretations from the internet.

    Read the law.

    If it isn't clear (when is it ever clear?) take the question to an attorney or DA (not a cop, they're job is to enforce, not interpret, the law).

    The default answer is always that, "It probably isn't "legal" AND it certainly isn't wise", to carry a fixed blade outside of your own property or hunting/fishing/hiking/camping.

    This has piqued my curiousity so I e-mailed my lawyer... (also my long time friend so I get my answer for free, don't try this at home)
