    Assisted openers in Canada


    ADVERTISEMENT
    What are the Canadian rules pertaining to assisted opening knives. My new job will require regular trips to Canada and I normally carry a Kershaw Blackout or a Leek.

    Assisted opening is fine like ZT0350, Leek etc., autos are not allowed.

    Added detail... when crossing the border i'd suggest tightening the pivot down so the assist really doesn't work, sometimes they can be dicks at the border if they check and say an assisted is an auto so make sure it doesn't work while you cross, but once here put it back to normal.

    AO's are legal in Canada. Here is some CBSA documentation:

    I knew there was no law against having them.. but it's good to know that there is paperwork saying they're legal!
