Short answer: Yes, you do. A fixed blade is considered a 'weapon' for the purposes of 'carrying a concealed weapon'. Blade length is irrelevant for the purpose of this discussion.I know this isnt a firearm question but i am sure some of you know the answer so, do you need a CCW to carry a fixed blade knife concealed if the blade legnth is only 3 1/2 inches? the statutes are very vague in this area. i know a folding knife is legal with no CCW but i ws unsure if being a fixed blade made a difference?
You can, however, legally carry one openly..doesn't mean you won't have a police issue, though.
...and yes...Florida Statutes where knives are concerned are annoyingly vague.
