Automatic Knives

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Automatic Knives

Post by dallas » Mon Sep 16, 2013 9:37 pm

As of Sept. 1st, automatic knives are now legal in Texas. Now I have to have one. Any suggestions? I think I want an OTF.

I could have sworn they were illegal under Federal law, not state law? Anyone know for certain, so we don't get ourselves in trouble?

I'm sure there must be quality ones, but I have never seen any... I think a pocket catch opening knife if just as fast or faster, though. Hope to see some posts suggesting good ones!

Thanks.

Okay, so we're not talking about full autos here, just assisted openers then.

I'll be getting this one eventually, but I'll probably get a Boker Kalashnikov cheapie auto to start out with (just cause I can).

Those are legal here too from what I understand.

Federal law can only really be concerned with inter-state commerce.

How it effects manufacturers who make the switchblades in one State and then sell in another I don't know. The way they import switchblades from out of the country is they leave some parts unassembled and then assemble them when they enter the country.

As for possession by Texas State residents it's legal according to the statute just so long as there isn't a local statute against it (like in San Antonio) or just so long as it's not double edged (that part didn't get repealed).

Most out the front switchblades are double edged, so I'd re-think that part OP.

I wouldn't be taking any such knives across State lines or selling them across State lines (or selling them at all really), which appears to be the only way an individual not engaged in the business of selling such knives would be violating the law.

For ordinary users and owners Texans can now own and carry switchblades.

I've had my Benchmade AFAK (Armed Forces Automatic Knife) for about 12-13 years now...take it with me everywhere. Other than the awesome overall construction, it's aluminum body make it super-light weight....and the simplicty in it's construction makes it easy to clean/maintain. Fastest and easiest auto I've seen.

Edit, looks like they changed it to the AFO instead.
