are you talking spring assist or push button opening ? There are lots of spring assisted knives out there that are you are starting the opening of the blade and the spring extends or unfolds the blade .

If you are talking about a switch blade type knife I believe you have to be law enforcement or military.

Google-fu is weak in this one. You must learn the ways of the search engine, or suffer embarssment at the hands of fellow forum members.

No, you can't.

I asked the same thing once to a local LEO. The way he described it that it is not illegal to carry a knife...but it is illegal to carry it as a weapon. He didn't elaborate to much on it...I am guessing that it is just a judgement call for LEO. I carry a kershaw blur tanto everyday. I have never been hassled.

When I was in highschool (young and dumb I know) a bunch of us got caught watching a fight at 12 at night at the local park. When the cop searched me he asked if I had anything and I told him I had a knife. He took it and said he could arrest me for having it but he didn't and ended up giving it back. The incident still makes me wonder.

Well I assume he could make the argument that since you were there watching a fight that it was being carried as a weapon...and if you were a minor at the time that might be a problem too.


I'd also like to add to not take anything I say as legal advice...I have been wrong many times before lol
