IN fixed blade carry......

Hey people, I know this has been discussed before, but I have forgotten [duh], and the "search" didn't really do it, so.....

What are the basic laws about carrying a fixed blade knife CONCEALED in Indiana?

Thanks!!

The only mention of knives in state law that I could ever find just said that switch blades were illegal.

I have heard that local ordinances may vary though.


ttt for more info.

And these local ordinances are where? Is this yet another, "My third cousin's dog used to be a cop in Terre Haute and the dog said . . . "

No basic, intermediate, or advanced laws on what you seek. Concealed, open, under your hat, on your back, whatever, we don't care. I carry swords and spears around with me. No problems (it's awfully tough to conceal a spear though!)

Where does this "basic laws" phrase come from? Do you guys think it is Southern?

One example of a local code (Thanks, UniGov!):

Quote:
From municode.com:
Sec. 451-1. Sharp objects or instruments on the person.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to carry around or have in his manual possession or control any ice pick or similar kind of sharp instrument, other than ordinary pocketknives, and such instruments described in subsection (b) of this section, unless the object is a necessary instrument of his lawful trade or occupation or for lawful use in his home, and is actually being carried and intended to be used for use in the performance of such trade or occupation, or for use in his home.
