Re: Is this knife banned?
Knife laws vary widely by state. Some states like SD are simple and only forbid ballistic knives.
Other states are complicated, like NY, and have very lengthy laws, and then attached as an amendment, the part about, ""Disguised knife" means any knife which is designed to appear as 4 an object other than a knife, such as a comb, writing instrument, 5 cigarette lighter or other object commonly carried on the person, and which 6 includes a blade concealed within such object."
Then states like Nevada have it right in the beginning..."1. It is unlawful for a person within this state to:
(a) Manufacture or cause to be manufactured, or import into
the state, or keep, offer or expose for sale, or give,
lend or possess any knife which is made an integral part
of a belt buckle or any instrument or weapon of the kind
commonly known as switchblade knife..."
It gets even more complicated at the county/city level and may override the state.
Consequences also widely vary from confiscation to fine or time...some states also have something effectively like "suggest an intent to deceive".
