    ok Knife people, knife law OH?

    I am a Ky resident. Have my Ky. CC permit. and am in good shape with Ky. knife law, but am going to be attending college in OH.? What is the knife law like in Oh? Fixed blade? Blade length?

    Normal knife carry is a Kershaw Ken Onion Chive-But was thinking about a bigger fixed blade for my carry bag.

    According to State Knife Carry and Blade Length Laws Ohio has a statutory 4 inch blade length limit and a fixed blade may be carried openly---the page is silent on concealed carry of fixed blade.

    There is no longer an absolute blade length restriction in Ohio. Its more of a matter of if its a "deadly weapon" or not. The definition of that can be found in the second link Anubis provided.
    You can open carry a knife in Ohio with out fear. Folders in your pocket or even clipped to are OK. A knife in a bag most likely is OK too, provided you are not using it to commit a crime of sorts.
