Ohio knife carrying laws?

I've looked all over and can't find an up to date version of the knife laws in Ohio, I'd like to carry a knife - I don't live in such a good neighborhood. Basically, I want to know if I can get in trouble for carrying a (not a folding knife, just a regular knife) knife in a sheath on my hip where it is in plain sight so that I have some form of protection when I go for a walk.

Also, if you could give me a link to an updated version of the law so that I can read it over, thank you. :]

Update:

Or a folded knife, either one, actually.
