If it shoots its illegal in the US

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.
