I think its even more restrictive. Automatic knives are illegal independent of the blade length. The 8.5 cm apply only to assisted knives, if I'm not mistaken.archangel wrote: ↑Wed Feb 10, 2021 11:59 amHow could I have been so ignorant?
Apparently I have successfully blended out for years that there is a length limit to blades of automatic knives in Germany, in order for them to be legal. It's 8,5cm. And the Autonomy 1/2 have blades of 9,4/8,9cm. They are illegal in Germany!!
Yes, you are right. I always misunderstood the law around automatic knives. Good to know.archangel wrote: ↑Wed Feb 10, 2021 1:54 pmNo, automatic knives are not illegal per se. Böker and many other dealers do sell automatic knives in Germany. Just models with blades shorter than 8,5cm.
OTFs and butterflies/balisongs are per se illegal, independant of the blade length. Not sure about balisong trainers, but probably the are ok since they have no real blade.

Yep in Minnesota the legislation essentially says “it is legal to own and carry any knife as long as it is not a ‘switchblade’.”Wartstein wrote: ↑Sun Feb 21, 2021 7:27 pm
Now, just that I get this right: In your state you are literally not allowed to OWN an Auto, even if you only keep it at home in a drawer - ?!?
