When you say Illegal...

So this is the knife I ordered, it's supposed to be here on the 4th. Pretty cool right?

As to why I got it, I collect knives somewhat, but I'm a pretty big nerd and have always been interested in history behind them and other knives like the kris that I have.  I also have a little experience with flipping these, which is addictive.

As for the legality of it, laws in the US are pretty sketchy about butterfly knives.  I've heard that they are and aren't illegal where I live, so I figure as long as it a) pretty much doesn't leave my house when I go to a public place, at least visible or on my person and b) isn't used as a weapon I'm fine

Still going to be a little busy tomorrow as well.

  1. I suggest doing a little research on your local laws. Being seen with that thing in public is a red flag to pretty much everyone around you.

  4. It's funny you should post this as I looked up the knife laws where I live, the UK. I'm not sure about the US but in the UK it's illegal to carry in public a knife that is not a pocket knife, and if it is a pocket knife, the blade has to be less than 3 inches. I think it's illegal to OWN one, you just can't go out and about with it without good reason, and VERY good reason. Such as being a butcher. Or a fisherman.

  7. Butterfly knives are bad ass if you learn some tricks with them... just don't go around waving it in people's faces and you should be fine.
