    OK guys so i findally busted the blade up on my winchester el cheapo knife, the edge was way messed up anyway. I got a old Buck 112 from my grand father last year for my birthday and like it, but I wasnt going to use that gift for a everyday knife. So I went and got myself a new Buck 110 Folding Knife. $29.99 good price I thought. But now that I have it I am wondering If I can legally carry it on me. Does Anyone know a site of the actaully Iowa knife laws etc.? From the brass on that handle the blade is 3 3/4 inchs, but the actaully edge is 3 and 3/8 inchs

Additionally, any instrument or device of any sort whatsoever which is actually used in such a manner as to indicate that the defendant intends to inflict death or serious injury upon the other, and which, when so used, is capable of inflicting death upon a human being, is a dangerous weapon. Dangerous weapons include, but are not limited to, any offensive weapon, pistol, revolver, or other firearm, dagger, razor, stiletto, switchblade knife, or knife having a blade exceeding five inches in length.

    2. A person who goes armed with a knife concealed on or about the person, if the person uses the knife in the commission of a crime, commits an aggravated misdemeanor.
