    Default Oklahoma Law Regarding Knives

    Have been looking over some automatic knives I could carry in lieu of my smaller spring assisted pocket knife when I felt the need to carry it. Anyone familiar with the law regarding these? My understanding is that automatics require some kind of permit (maybe), but spring-assisted don't? The small lockblade I carry for every day use is spring assisted; what would I need to do to legally carry a larger automatic, and is it OK to carry a larger spring assisted knife? Why the discrepancy between "auto" and "assisted"?

    According to 21-1272 (I think that's right) it's not unlawful to carry if:

    2. The carrying or use of weapons in a manner otherwise permitted by statute or authorized by the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act.

    Does that fall under the CCW?

    This thread pretty much sums it up. Unless you're LE or active duty mil on orders, I wouldn't get caught outside the home carrying an auto knife.

    It simply cannot be overstated. The pathological need for the illusion of control outweighs all other factors in our society. Risk aversion is one of THE most powerful religions in modern day America. It is the people's shepherd. Without it, the flock would be lost.

    Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

    I have never been searched and any time i have had contact with le none have said anything about what kind of pocket knife i had. Even the ones i have rode with before. Just don't be a moron and wave it around and if they ask be honest, if your not a felon i am pretty sure they won't do jack.

    But a "spring assisted" is OK, right? They aren't considered a "switchblade" as far as I can see - that should be the automatic.

    The posted thread doesn't give much more insight into the law, either. My concern isn't so much getting caught carrying one, but if I ever had to use one in self defense. Don't want to get grilled in court.

    "knife having a blade which opens automatically by hand pressure applied to a button, spring, or other device in the handle of the knife"

    This part is what clears it up IMO, most of the assisted opening knives are opened by a stud or "Lip" on the blade itself, not in the handle.

    I have a funny story. I was in the military stationed in Colorado Springs at Fort Carson and it was 230 a.m. and we were sitting at Denny's enjoying the nasty drunk mans food and a fight broke out. A guy fell into our seats and threw a punch for no reason and one of the guys gave him a very nice get away from our table throw. Then the police came and during the altercation my buddy who was eating pancakes had a butter knife in his hand while he was trying to push a guy away from our table. The police almost took him to jail because he had a butter knife in his hand. It was considered a deadly weapon. Thank God he was the DD and was sober or he would have went to jail. They let him off the hook. The moral of the story is do not have anything in your hand when you are trying to brake up a fight.

    That's nuts!
    There's an assault/a salt pun somewhere in here. I can feel it.

    Thanks. I knew the basic difference, but not the legal difference. I'll just go with a new spring assisted in a larger size than what I've got.
