Vintage SCHRADE military pocket knife

Postby mmmorici » Tue Sep 26, 2017 11:19 am

I'm looking for some help regarding the purchase and sale of vintage pocket knives with automatic or switch blade mechanisms like this SCHRADE (paratrooper?) pocket knife. These appear to be legal in some states and illegal in others. Is this true for military issue knives? Thanks.

That's a neat MC-1 aircrew survival knife. I don't know the law in Maryland but AKTI has knife laws listed for each state:

Commerce in switchblades is prohibited in Maryland.

§ 4-105. Transfer of switchblade or shooting knife.

(a) Prohibited. – A person may not sell, barter, display, or offer to sell or barter:

(1) a knife or a penknife having a blade that opens automatically by hand pressure applied to a button, spring, or other device in the handle of the knife, commonly called a switchblade knife or a switchblade penknife…
