Ohio knife is not very well defined. Link.

"Most" places officers have the right to determine what the intent of the person is considering what they are carrying.  Meaning "if it looks like you're looking for trouble then you may have found it".

if u mean a buck knife that u open manually and not by a button i dont think there is a limit, but in boyscouts a pocket knife blade shouldnt b a length over the width of yur palm. the knife you showed a link 2 i would imagine the 3 inch rule would apply here but im not sure. i know that a butterfly knife is ilegal in most states, but in california the 3 inch rule applies, i dont know about in ohio. P.S. i live in pennsylvania
