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!
