    I guess its because its mechanical,its not much different crossbow or a blowgun.I dont remember seeing or making either comment on this though, because I know its not legal,maybe I didnt look well enough,and thought it was a switch blade,its kinda cool anyhow..

    Yeah, that's easy enough to do. I come back to comment replies that are years old and wonder what the heck the conversation was about.

    The possession thing is to remove the potential for harm/crime/etc.

    That is 100% illegal in the u.s. and the uk dont listen to people saying its not a ballistic knife propelled by a spring carries a minimum of 5 years in prison for possesion or sale a explosive proppelled ballistic knife however isnt illegal but is very restricted under the aow (all other weapon) category so if I were you I would take it appart and never build it again. Yes its cool but is it worth 5 years in prison?

    DUDE ITS NOT FREAKING ILLEGAL AS LONG AS U DONT USE IT AS A WEAPON ITS NOT BRO IVE SEEN ALL LAWS ITS NOT

    It is illegal no matter how often you dispute it. It doesn't matter if the knife is homemade or factory made.

    Possession, not only its use, is illegal.

    You can review the relevant US law here:

    There are _several_ laws prohibiting this in the UK, but I can't lay hands on them.

    What size of PVC is it

    It's awesome, ignore the hate bruh

    It's a pvc tube cap end dowel nail spring and pin made from a bolt on the end of a clip. Spring in back end of tube glued into cap end nail"knife" in front end of dowel compress spring put pin in hole in dowel to lock it. Point press clip. Dowel shoots out. Smoke ace go make it.

    In the USA a spring powered ballistic knofe is illegal

    iT IS BUT IS THIS A BALLISTIC KNIFE TECNICALLY NO BECAUSE I HAVE A REAL ONE

    no it isnt stupid just dont build it

    Ok now everyone's saying that this is illegal but I mean come on people this thing is AWESOME PERIOD. So if you don't like it then don't make it. Saying it's illegal aint gonna keep us people from making awesome things like cannons and swords that are funnily more approved than a small little knife that fits in your pocket also known as a pocket knife witch is also illegal for me to carry but I still do. So unless someone takes it from me it's mine buddy.
