Laws concerning knives

Switch blades, Gravity Knives, Stiletto’s and Spring Loaded knives are illegal and therefore no reputable dealer can sell these to you.  Simple possession of these objects is a crime should you decide to purchase from a non-reputable dealer.  Any knife you purchase that has a blade in excess of 3 ½ inches cannot be carried or it is a violation of law.
