It depends entirely upon what your particular state defines as a deadly weapon. In nebraska, a tonfa, baron, ASP, are not deadly weapons and may be concealed. However a blackjack, SAP, or brass knuckes are and may not.

I am not familiar with Idaho. The best thing to do would be to search your state's revised statutes or penal code under weapons. If you still have questions, call the state AG or ask a lawyer for advise.

THere is no federal prohabition on any type of concealed carry or any weapon, that is left to individual states to codify.

Here in CO it differs from city to city. Some even say that you cannot own an ASP period, muchless concealed.
