Can anyone tell me what the law is about fixed blade knives being concealed in NH? I'd like to carry a larger fixed blade IWB, but im not entirely sure of the legalities of it. Everywhere I look seems to be a dead end. Say I wanted to conceal a 7 inch bowie IWB, would that be legal?

me likey, you will have no problem carrying one of those.

Lots of self defense stores here sell knives listed above with no problems, I have seen many Butterfly knives, daggers, throwing stars, sling shots, blow guns, tazers, black jacks, cane swords and other Evil looking knives for sale right out in the open. Just check hampton beach, It is suprising the stuff they have in those cases. Its mostly chinese junkyard imports but still very illegal in states other than NH.

Being able to buy them, and concealing them are entirely two different things though.

IMO you should be good to go. I think the legal definition of dagger is "double-edged" same thing with dirk.
ETA: is the top sharped on the smallest blade?
