Can I play too Wayne?

Tune convinced me 2 years ago at Blade that I should get a Microtech OTF. Never been sorry.
Also an older Benchmade 3550 Stimulus, a Mel Pardue blade. Both are lightning fast. I've also had many other Benchmade autos and all were very well made.

The top one is the Orange handled Knife I got at 7 years old(1965) from my Dad. The first ones issued were Schrade Walden made. Then Logan-Smyth and finally Camillus which had the final contract for the US Military.

Just looking at all these quality auto knives reminds me that a number of years ago,auto knives called "switchblades" back then were not of the quality now.

I remember back in the early 50's I bought a much outlawed "Wolf Killer" switchblade knife from an ad in,I think it was Field and Stream Magazine.

When it finally arrived,I opened and closed the blade a few times,then it was basically toast. So much for a $2.98 knife!!!

Just take a look at the Buck,Micro-Tec,Rat Worx to name a few. They are light years in quality in comparison to the autos of years gone by.

Wayne, You are right about the quality change since the 1980's in high end auto's. Some of those 1950 auto's fetch a lot more than $3 bucks today. These pictured examples all still work. Top 2 pics show double auto bladed examples.

Eric,
Now that is a real nice collection. Dumb question,are auto knives OK in MI???

I have a hard time trying to decide which auto to carry. I usually switch between the Micro-Tec,Rat Worx or newly acquired Buck Impact.

In my state,they are not allowed to carry except in your home or property with the exception of LEOs which I am retired.

Yeah, back in the 80s some tried to get around legislation by selling a "kit" that was two pieces, blade and "everything else". Compliance with any state and local laws was left up to the purchaser.

For the OTF, you unscrewed one screw on a bolster, lifted the bolster and dropped the blade in place, then re-assembled.

It was a horrible "hunk of junk" knife, but I had an OTF auto!

It became legal in Michigan on Oct 10th[law officially active 90 days after Governor signed it].
OTF with a spear blade sharpened on both sides still illegal for some reason.

505,
For some reason,legislators tend to keep some sort of "regulation" in a law when they repeal a law.

That is the way they are. I stopped trying to figure that out years ago.

Just like in my state,a regular Ruger Mini-14 is OK. Put a folding stock on it and you now are looking at some serious slammer time.

Wayne
