Default Is this all legal stuff?

I still haven't bought anything for my Secret Santa recipient yet. (Sorry) Money has been tighter than I expected. But while searching for something for my 'person', I came across this website. It seems like some of these things might be illegal to own. What do you think?

All look perfectly legal to me...that south bend pisces reel might be questionable in some states.

A lot of those are illegal in Texas, notably the butterfly and throwing knives.

As the folks said- depends on where you are.

In VA, get caught with the lock picks, you better have a locksmith license, or you are going for felony possession of burglarious tools. Shurikens (throwing stars) are illegal here. I recall butterfly knives being a felony in Vegas.

I have an Othello Red Dot thrower from Solingen Germany (birthday present one year) that is illegal as all get out in some states- double edged blade.

Looks fine by me. You need my mailing address for shipping?

In Texas, mere possession of most questionable items in the privacy of ones own home is perfectly legal. Possessing many such items in public can bring penalties. Throwing kives for instance, here in Austin, the world knife throwing championships was held a few weks back. My boss was the judge. I can assure you he would not have been involved in illegal activity.

Depends on where you live. Most of the laws restricting blades are intended to give law enforcement more tools to bring more charges against lawbreakers. The lesson is don't get caught committing a crime with a questionable blade that would increase the charges against you.
