Final Say and the Law

There are many great companies producing OTFs. Some of the top dogs are Benchmade, Microtech, Protech, and Smith & Wesson’s tactical line. In the early 50’s, Hollywood often depicted these blades as the trademark weapons of rough or criminal-prone characters, creating a lot of negative associations with stiletto style switchblades and, by default, OTF knives. As a result, the United States began passing laws against switchblade knives. Know the laws in your area before you purchase.
