Just cleaned my Benchmade Mel Pardue 9000 and was reminded how lucky I am to be able own and carry such a fine shank
Link Posted: 9/2/2004 7:33:25 PM EDT
Yep. Its legal to carry with CCW in Fl.
Link Posted: 9/2/2004 7:36:10 PM EDT

What do you guys have? Post some pics
Link Posted: 9/2/2004 7:48:45 PM EDT
Yes, many Benchmades. They are a fine knife.

Wish I could carry it legally here in WA

Wow, I only get one blade when I push the button on mine. Where do I get one of those automatic knives.
Link Posted: 9/2/2004 7:53:11 PM EDT
The correct legal answer is NO, Auto knives are illegal in my state.

What's the best way to keep the spring/tension tight on a benchmade. I got it wet and now it doesn't fold out all the way when I hit the button.

Even in California you can have one as long as the blade is under 2", I have a cusom one made by a friend of my Pops out of Reno. Wish I had my digicam with me.

Automatic knives are restricted to LE use in Indiana. I do have (and carry) a Kershaw ken onion that's almost automatic. With practice, it's hard to tell the difference.

You're allowed to own them in California regardless of blade length. Carrying them and transporting them is a totally different area though.

Yep, I got one, but more and more I prefer a dedicated shround cutter.
Link Posted: 9/2/2004 8:34:03 PM EDT
No, but I do have a Semi-Automatic Knife - the Kershaw Blackout!

As far as I know all you have to have is a pistol permit to carry an auto knife (switchblade in my book).

If you mean shroud cutter, I think they are in the stock system... but the one I was given was not much on quality

ETA: I just went to check mine, no NSN on it... simple flat (fixed) blade shroud hook, about 6" total with a sad little kydex/nylon case... oh, and I guess I really don't OWN any auto knives come to think of it.

Ban automatic assault knives! For the children!

I don't know what Minnesota's laws are on automatic knives, but I will tell you I can pull my Emerson Commander out of the rapid deployment sheath faster than anyone can open a automatic knife
Link Posted: 9/2/2004 8:56:25 PM EDT
I had one back in the ole thug days

More slices per squeeze? More thrusts per slice?

Nice!!

Only one, and I don't carry it for fear of losing it somewhere... I use CRKT or a cheaper Benchmade for carry.
