    Title XLVI CRIMES Chapter 790 WEAPONS AND FIREARMS 2012 Florida Statute 790.001

    (3)(a) “Concealed weapon” means any dirk, metallic knuckles, slungshot, billie, tear gas gun, chemical weapon or device, or other deadly WEAPON carried on or about a person in such a manner as to conceal the weapon from the ordinary sight of another person.

    “WEAPON” means any dirk, knife, metallic knuckles, slungshot, billie, tear gas gun, chemical weapon or device, or other deadly weapon except a firearm or a common pocketknife, plastic knife, or blunt-bladed table knife.

    You cant carry any fixed blade knife that is concealed in a shirt,jacket or pants legs...it must be open carry.

    There are also numerous city/town/county ordinances against open carry of fix blade knives in public areas.
