Are spring assisted knives legal in Pa.?
#21
My office has been telling people assisted opening knives are not illegal under PA law because they're not automatic. This was also backed up by the DA. Of course, who knows what a more liberal DA would say.

It depends on your local laws. They're not autos, so they're not specifically banned under the prohibited offensive weapons law. They are illegal in Philly, as all knives are. There are no state laws concerning knives. I carry a Kershaw Leek, as well as butterfly knife. They're legal in my jurisdiction.
Unbanned since September 2012.

So I need to be more concerned with where im at? That is ridiculous. Make clear state wide law. Wouldnt that be the easiest thing to do?

OK the Bucks Co. Sheriff said they are ILLEGAL. Even though they are spring assisted they are considered the same as a switch blade. Is it worth your your right to own a firearm by carrying one? For me NO. This is only info for you. Im not trying to tell anyone what to do.

P89 was right. They consider anything with a spring a switchblade in Bucks Co.
