What are the laws in Ohio concerning carrying a pocket knife?

I carry a pocket knife on me at all times and was curious to if it was illegal.

Whether is is legal to carry the knife depends on the length of the blade. Contact your local police department and asked to speak to someone about carrying a pocketknife. Measure the blade and explain that you carry it for utility purposes.

If you carry a pocket knife and the blade is under 6 inches then you are not in violation of the law in most public buildings.

This depends on weather or not you have a criminal record. In Ohio as long as you do not have a criminal record you can carry a pocket knife that is less than 2 inches long and has a folding blade. You cannot take it into areas that say "no concealed weapons".
