There is still a string attached to it, you have to have a FOID card to possess one. But.... one step at a time.

JC, just like everything else we have a support group for your knife rights in America. I joined, you may want to, I have posted this before but maybe it needs repeating. Information about knife rights legislation across the U.S.A. Working and fighting for our rights.

Wisconsin has been able to carry switchblades for about a year now that Scott Walker signed a bill permitting their use.

The only proviso is that you can carry one if you are also eligible to apply for a CCW license. I think he did that so that teenagers wouldn't start packing them to school.

Currently I am collecting "coil drive" models. The springs last longer, leaving them closed for months doesn't weaken them. If you buy a Sicilian model with a "leaf spring," it's best to store it open.

Now, I do suggest Mikov models. They use a leaf spring, but you can replace that with your bare hands. I bought about 30 sets of springs, even a left-handed model for my wife.

I checked with Josh, and he has no "clip point" Mikov models in stock, those are my favorites.

When I spent a lot of time in the Philippines, I grew to like Butterfly Knives. Found one in the box not to long ago and nearly cut my fingers off. Knives are dangerous!!!!!!!!

WillyD, if you're not a member of Illinois Carry I suggest you join. It's a forum that's made up of Illinois residents fighting for our rights.

People from Illinois should not be allowed to play with sharp objects.
Especially Northern Illinois!

Question What's The Diff?

I read this thread the other day and was kind of curious.Today, I picked up a Kershaw Model 1930 assisted opening knife.


What the heck is the difference between a switchblade and an assisted opening knife.
Kershaw Model 1830.png

Usually a switchblade is depicted as having a long slender blade. My Kershaw has a clipped point blade. Is that all there is?? Either one,
you push a button or a "flipper" and the blade pops out. Seems the same or very similar to me. Then again, I'm more of a gun guy than a knife guy. For the most part, I leave the knife enthusiasm to my son.

I was just a bit stumped as to the difference. Is it mechanical or legal??I realize that switchblades have taken a bad rap, legally, for years. Please enlighten this poor misguided "GUN GUY"!!

Legal in GA:

What is Legal to Own in Georgia:
Balisong knives, often called butterfly knives, are legal.
Bowie knives and other large knives are legal.
Throwing stars and throwing knives are legal.
Disguised knives such as cane knives, belt knives, and lipstick knives are legal.

In Georgia, there are no limits on the possession of knives. You can own any knife you want. There are only limits on carry knives.

For knives greater than 5 inches, you need a weapons permit.
