Anyone know the legalities on the carry of double edged fixed blade knives in TN?  A friend and myself were discussing knife carry laws and this topic came up. I wasn’t 100% positive on it myself.

Yep. You can legally walk down the street with a broadsword if you want.

That sounds like a challenge.....

Certain specific (who knows why) types of knives are bad juju on school grounds ( TCA 39-17-1303 ( b ) )

(b)

    (1)  It is an offense for any person to possess or carry, whether openly or concealed, with the intent to go armed, any firearm, explosive, explosive weapon, bowie knife, hawk bill knife, ice pick, dagger, slingshot, leaded cane, switchblade knife, blackjack, knuckles or any other weapon of like kind, not used solely for instructional or school-sanctioned ceremonial purposes, in any public or private school building or bus, on any public or private school campus, grounds, recreation area, athletic field or any other property owned, operated, or while in use by any board of education, school, college or university board of trustees, regents or directors for the administration of any public or private educational institution.

    (2)  A violation of this subsection (b) is a Class E felony.

Other than those two, I'm 99.995% certain that TCA is silent on all other blades, so yeah, a sword cane would be good to go. I think it shows incredibly poor taste if it doesn't have a cobra or a dragon as a handle, but that's just one man's opinion.
