Closest thing to a switchblade you can own legally?

That doesn't suck and isn't too expensive. Like a oh shit a dog has my arm kinda knife.

The "magic" words are:

Assisted Opening
Gravity Assisted

Those denote the ones that you can flick or push a thumb stud and pop it open. Since they don't use a button, they aren't considered autos.

I have a Kershaw Blackout that is decent enough. Was $40 or so.

It depends on your state laws, some states allow automatic opening knives.

I've got a SOG Flash II. Assisted opening and a fairly beefy blade for a pocketknife. They run about $40-$50.

Lowes carries the SOG Flash II for $50. It is a good knife at that price, but you can save a few bucks searching froogle or ebay.

Blade length laws vary wildly from state to state, so you want to research that before you buy anything. Check out your state's laws: http://www.thehighroad.org/library/b...knifelaws.html

I have a leek in the rainbow titanium coated . That is one sharp motherfucker of a knife, far more sharp than any of the Benchmade knives I own. Even though the blade is longer than the blade on the chive and scallion models, it still opens up almost faster than you can see it open.

I have no regrets buying it.

Buck strider is nice too. That link is kinda confusing I must say since question marks in certain states and doesn't talk about other blade sizes. I dunno?

I have a Kershaw Blur that I'm quite fond of, though it's larger than the knives posted in this thread so far.

It's a Buck Rush.

I carry it daily, it's a great knife - after 2 years of use it started to gum up so I poured some gun lube in it and it was good as new. Buck sells it for $82 - you could probably get it cheaper elsewhere.

Rugged knife, but I lost mine. I upgraded to a Ka-Bar Dozier D2 folder. Very nice blade, can be had for $80-$120 if you can actually find one. They went out of production in '07 so some places may have inventory still.

I think I would recommend against a folding knife for protection, as you don't want to rely on the lock to keep the blade open in impacts with strange angles. For example, the CRKT autolawks system is nice, and solidly locks the blade open. This doesn't address the weak hinge, though. I bought one of these for $75 and before I even used it once, I was testing if the knife flexed under sideways pressure... and broke it. It took about the same force as snapping a pencil.
