    Automatic knife laws in Arkansas


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I'm really interested in purchasing a Microtech automatic knife (mostly just for the cool factor), but I'm only willing to do so if it's completely legal. I've read one source that states that automatic knives (as long as blade length is less than 3 1/2") are ok, and another source which states that all switchblades (in Arkansas) are illegal. If it makes any difference, I also have a concealed carry permit. I understand that purchasing said knife would have to be done at a shop within my state as the purchase can't take place across state lines? Thanks for any help that can be provided.

    I have this EXACT same question - anyone on this forum know the answer?

    Now, don't quote me, but I think you are allowed to own switchblades in Arkansas. I don't know about the blade length. Carrying one is not kosher, unless you are "on a journey" or some such nonsense, if I recall that little bit correctly. This is all old info, and I would suggest a search for more current data. I do know that I've seen several switchblades at gun and knife shows in Ft. Smith.
