Fully automatic knives are not universally illegal. U.S. Code Title 15, Sect. 1241 defines switchblade knives as any knives which open “1) by hand pressure applied to a button or other device in the handle of the knife, or any knife having a blade which opens automatically; (2) by operation of inertia, gravity, or both.” Most states use some version of this definition in their laws. At the state level, there are three levels of civilian switchblade legality—legal, illegal, or legal with limitations. In some states possession is legal but carry isn’t and municipalities may have their own restrictions. The list below covers only the issue of carrying an automatic knife.
