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