An auto knife is a switchblade, auto is simply a more neutral word.

I've owned auto's before but been shaky about carrying them. I live in pennsylvania. I usually carry my buck adrenaline in my pocket everyday, it comes in handy for everyday things alot, and it could also be very useful in self defence need the occasion present itself. So say im carrying an auto, not an otf, but an auto and an officer catch's me with it. Happens to see it or something. Has this happend to anyone? What in your opinion do you think he would do?

if your local laws says they are legal I wouldn't think anything would happen.
They are Illegal to carry around here.
I don't know anything about knife fighting tactics, I bought one for the cool geewhiz factor.
Check your local laws.

The laws vary from state to state. Here is a pretty good link that may give you some idea of what the laws are where you live.

http://pw1.netcom.com/~brlevine/sta-law.htm#A-H

Where I live in Ohio, It is illegal to sell an auto knife to a non-LEO or military person, but it is not illegal for a non-military/LEO to own or carry an auto knife. Go figure.

In Ohio although I can own one, local ordinances like in Akron/Columbus may make it illegal to carry one. Many of these local ordinances have been struck down in the courts however.

There are numerous places on the net where you can buy auto knives. Most will require you to sign a document indicating that you are an LEO or someone who they can legally sell an auto knife to. Falsely signing one of these documents probably has other legal ramifications associated with it.

The best place to get one would likely be at a flea market or gun show or by someone selling their collection at AR15.com. I have built a fairly decent collection by purchasing at these places and at this point I am doing nothing that is legal. I am going to a gun show Saturday where there will probably be five dealers who have autos in with what they are selling. You have to look twice to tell if there are autos or not.

Be careful what you buy. There are auto Italian Stiletto knives that sell for $10 beside one that looks identical for $100.

The $10 one won't last long. A $400 Microtect may be as sweet as they come until you see a $750 Rainy Vallotton 1 of 50 solid titanium SOF.

The damn things are as much of a sickness as those damn black rifles are.

I have two double action knives and I have more fun manually opening them than I do using the button/spring.

In fact it probably is even faster because there is no fumbling involved looking for the button.

Great looking collection BTW.

I got a good deal on these from a Soldier in Afghanistan. Such a good deal in fact that I had to buy a half dozen of them. Mine are a little different however...they say: "Police Special XXX of 250" on the blade. Awesome knife. I carry it daily.

WOW! According to that site it is a Class 5 Felony for possession of an auto knife in Colorado, if you are not a LEO or Military.....
