    You can not conceal a fixed blade knife in NC. If you open carry it you need to ensure that there is no way of it becoming hidden from view.

    Here is a thread that has references and case law about knives in NC. It saves me a whole lot of typing.

    If you are off your own property and have a fixed blade knife within your access and reach and it is not readily visible when approached then you are carrying an illegal concealed weapon. Now without seeing exactly how it looks being carried as you described I'd not fathom a guess if you are treading on thin ice or not. It may not be an issue but don't get the surprised face if you get to take a ride somewhere you hadn't planned on.

    Remember all it takes is the officer to be able to articulate that it was not visible upon his interaction with you.
