Automatic Knives

Automatic knives, also known as switchblades, open automatically with the press of a button or pull of a lever. Designed primarily for military, police and EMT duty, the speed of an automatic knife is ideal for emergency situations. Automatic knives are restricted in many areas, so be certain to consult your local laws before purchasing.

Final Say and the Law

Whether you call them automatic knives, switchblades, OTF knives, or even Italian Stilettos, this category of knife is always expanding. No matter what you call them, automatic knives have been making moms nervous since 1958 when Congress passed the Federal Switchblade Act, which has restricted these types of knives in some areas. As you consider getting your own automatic knife, make sure to check your local laws to see if carrying a switchblade is legal in your area.
