    I remember my dad (who was a gunsmith) had a really nice special forces/navy seal type of "switchblade" he got in a trade. It was the real deal and not some mexican border piece of $hit. I have been searching for one of these with no luck. I did see one in a police mag a while back but I lost it. It was black, came out the side instead of the top and was very light weight with a skeleton style handle you could see through.

    Are these legal to own, where could I find one?

    Thanks

    I have one of these, it feels strong in your hand and when opening.

    They are made by Kershaw. It's not an actual "switchblade". It has a spring open assist.

    Once upon a time I owned a true switchblade; nice little Benchmade that a fellow Marine Reservist (who was also an LEO) was able to acquire legally for us. But I sold it to someone who was staying on active duty when I left the Corps. Yep, I sure did sell it...

    Don't you know the difference between a 'switchblade' and a 'stilleto' ?

    freakin idiots!


    Auto knives rock. Pretty much need to be military or LEO to get one. The Kershaw "speed-safe" knives are pretty neat. Cam-assisted spring type thing in them. Benchmade makes some good autos. Hell, Benchmade makes a good anything. I love their Balisongs :)

    I can walk into the building I work in, and talk to life support and get one. I mean, look at one.

    Not in this State. Anyone can buy one, getting caught carrying it, that's different.
