I'm not sure we are discussing the same mechanism. On my folders you just punch the activation button and the blade pops open.

BTW, it is now legal in Wisconsin to carry a switchblade knife. However, I also a remember a police officer tell me that he wasn't going to "waste an entire day over a jackknife."

If switchblades are illegal in your jurisdiction, go to CRKT and look for handles with a switch on the pivot end. These folders can be taken apart by hand and many blades fit that handle. You can recognize them by the circular tab on the obverse side of the pivot. A few times learning how to flip them open (and a few spritzes of 3 in 1 oil) will make the folder open smoothly.

As for collecting, I hoard the Sicilian autos in the "9 inch" length. That's four inches of blade and five inches of handle. They are easy to carry in your pocket or your jacket. As always, call Joyce and/or Nick. They only sell superior items. Drop my name.

Switchblades been legal in Tennessee since 2014 I believe. This site has listing for every state. A few States say "CC switchblade is legal with a pistol permit." Some say blade must be less than 5".

Legal here if the blade is less than 1.5"
In other words, they aren't legal here.

Yeah, that's what I thought it did. I have a Kershaw like that and a couple cheap no name knives. I would probably buy that new CRKT if it was closer to the 50 dollar range.

Rick, I received my A.G Russell catalog last week and I was wondering about that knife myself. Of course, my wife reminded me that I have +two dozen such folders, as my State finally made them permissible.

A word to the wise, I'd measure the blade, then the ricasso. Let's suppose your knife's edge was 3.75 inches. Of course, the riccaso might be 0.5 of an inch.

In many areas the ricasso is considered part of the edge, ergo, your knife will measure 4.25 of an inch legally. Yeah, I know, I know, it's chicken-spit. But selling knives to professionals over the years has shown me that there is no singular law, just a bunch of county statutes that can hang you every time.
