    Due to the change in Georgia law earlier this year you can carry a blade of 5" or more, fixed or folding, wherever you can legally carry a firearm, as long as you have a Georgia Weapons License.
    Carry of anything smaller than that is not preempted by the state and thus depends on what individual cities or counties allow.

    So around the Kennesaw, Roswell, Woodstock, Acworth area I can carry a fixed blade 4" or less concealed without a weapons permit (I do have a fireamrs permit)??

    Sorry I know thread is old.
