    Fixed Blade Karambit Help

    So I am a college student in good ol' Southwest Missouri. I carry 2 folding knives on me at all times and I was wanting to trade one of them for a fixed Karambit (United Cutlery Honshu Karambit), just a taste thing. After one of my friends was saying that there were some issues with fixed knife laws in this state, I decided to do some research and I cannot come up with a definitive answer. So I thought what better place to ask then a defense carry forum.

    SO, please help me out here. I have had some training in a different state on how to use my knives defensively, and there were no issues with what I have been carrying, as far as I know, but with this switch I am unsure. I am wanting to carry the Karambit concealed under my shirt, and I just need to know if it is legal for me to possess it in public. A17-UC2786(2).jpg
    Thanks for the help

    Hope this helps. Scroll down to MO section, you'll see MO knife laws vary from city to city.

    Thank you, while I am not saying that the information you gave me isn't useful, it doesn't specifically say anything about fixed blade knives. I have done some research on it and I have yet to find anything definitive about what the law actually states in this aspect. It says that folding knives 4 inches are less are fine to carry concealed, but I am needing to know about a 4 inch blade fixed knife.

    If you use that link and follow it out, it will take you to specific codes. For example I clicked on Ballwin, and followed it out and came up with this:

    Sec. 17-54. - Weapons generally.permanent link to this piece of content

    (a)

    It shall be unlawful for any person to wear under his clothes, or to conceal about his person, or to display in a threatening manner any dangerous or deadly weapon including, but not by way of limitations, any pistol; revolver; slingshot; blackjack; cross-knuckles or knuckles of lead, brass or other metal; or any bowie knife, dirk, dagger, razor or any knife resembling a bowie knife or having a blade in excess of 2 inches in length; or any other dangerous or deadly weapon.

    One caution regarding the Karambit. If you have not had training specific to this type of blade, get a rubber version and practice, practice, practice. The handling and movements to be effective and not cut yourself are night and day to a traditional blade.
