Conceal Carry of a Knife by a Minor (Wisconsin)

In Wisconsin a knife can be conceal carried because it is not considered a "dangerous weapon" (statutes; 941.23 and 939.22 (10). My question is can a minor also carry a knife according to these laws?

The Constitution of Wisconsin is clear, but makes no mention of age
"Right to keep and bear arms. SECTION 25. [As created Nov. 1998] The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security, defense, hunting, recreation or any other lawful purpose."
And neither does the Wisconsin Statutes

Wisconsin laws are a bit of a confused mess when it comes to their weapons laws. :)

Under the State Fair Park Board's section 2.14, however, the "dangerous weapons" definition includes knives:
If you plan on carrying a knife, concealed or otherwise, check with the local police first. There are laws that apply to possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under the age of 18, but the "where" and "why" of carry can make a difference.

With any weapon, avoid school zones.
