To the extent permitted by law, there is no limit to the length of the blades of the knife, the number of edges or the construction of the knife. For unconvicted offenders, the following types of knives are legal to own and transport in New Hampshire: So I`m 16 years old and want to buy a good hunting knife for this summer. Are there any age laws when buying knives in New Hampshire? New Hampshire law governs the sale, manufacture, and possession of knives. Knife laws in New Hampshire are very simple. By law, you are not prohibited from owning any type of knife. The state of New Hampshire is one of the most tolerant states in the country in terms of knife possession, which is due to the work of State Rep. Jenn Coffey, a former EMT, who took up the cause of allowing New Hampshire citizens to carry the knife of their choice. In 2010, Rep. Coffey introduced HB1665 and advocated for the removal of all restrictions on circuit sheets, daggers, dirks, and stiletto heels from New Hampshire law. Since 2012, it has been forbidden to own or possess stiletto heels, circuit blades, folding knives with more than one edge and throwing knives, whether stored at home or not. [16]: 44–46 As an anti-violence measure, legislation against the sale or use of switching blades in the United States has clearly failed, as juvenile street gangs have increasingly moved from thugs and knives to handguns, MAC-10 and AK-47 to settle their disputes in the territory, as well as income from prostitution, extortion and the sale of illegal drugs.

[103] [104] [105] In fact, in the United States the rate of murders with sharp instruments or knives of all kinds dropped from 23% of all murders in 1965 to only 12% in 2012. [106] In South Korea, any knife that automatically opens at more than 45 degrees at the push of a button and whose blade measures more than 5.5 centimeters is subject to registration. To legally register and possess the knife, you must be over 20 years of age, have no criminal record, and be in good physical and mental health. The registration process is carried out at nearby police stations. However, if the owner of the knife does not have a hunting license, it is generally forbidden to carry the knife in public. The ability to purchase or wear paddle shift blades or automatic knives continues to be severely restricted or banned in much of Europe, with a few notable exceptions. In the UK, the foldable type of switching blade is commonly referred to as a folding knife. In the UK, it is almost impossible to legally acquire or transport knives with an automated opening system.

Although they can be legally detained, it is illegal to manufacture, sell, rent, give, lend or import such knives. This definition would nominally limit legal ownership to «grandfathered» automatic knives that were already in the possession of their owner before the adoption of the applicable law in 1959. Even if such a knife is legally in possession, carrying it in public without just cause or legal authority is also illegal under applicable UK law. In 1957, Senator Estes Kefauver (D) of Tennessee unsuccessfully attempted to pass a law limiting the importation and possession of switching blade knives. Opposition to the bill by the U.S. knife industry was moderate, with the exception of Colonial Knife Co. and Schrade-Walden Inc., which still produced small quantities of pocket blades for the United States. Market.

[1] Some in the industry even supported the law in the hope of gaining market share at the expense of Colonial and Schrade. [1] However, the law did not receive the expected support from the U.S. Department of Commerce and Justice, which ruled that the law was unenforceable and that it impinged unwarranted intrusions into legal sales in interstate commerce. [1] [4] In 1904, George Schrade, with his brothers Louis and William, founded the Schrade Cutlery Co. in Walden and began to develop a new series of circuit sheets, which he patented in 1906/07. [2] Schrade`s new safety push-button knives included several design improvements over his previous work and featured a handle-mounted control button with a sliding safety switch. [82] A multi-blade control button allowed the knife to operate with up to four automatic blades. [82] In successive patents from 1906 to 1916, Schrade steadily improved this design, which later became known as the Presto series.

[2] With the Presto line, Schrade would largely dominate the automatic knife market in the United States for the next forty years. Schrade manufactured thousands of standard knives under contract under several brands and brands, including E. Weck, Wade & Butcher and Case XX, while other companies used Schrade`s patent as the basis for their own schematic samples. Among them were pocket switch blades and folding hunter model blades named Keen Kutter, a brand of E.C. Simmons Hardware Co. (later purchased by Shapleigh Hardware Co.). The advent of mass production methods made it possible to produce folding knives with multiple components in large quantities at a lower cost. [1] By 1890, sales of American knives of all kinds were on the rise, supported by mail-order catalog sales and mass marketing campaigns with advertisements in magazines and newspapers.

As a result, knife manufacturers began to market new automatic knives that were much more affordable to the general public. In Europe and the United States, sales of automatic knives have never accounted for more than a fraction of sales of traditional folding knives, but the type has recorded consistent, albeit modest, sales from year to year. [1] In 2010, bipartisan support for knife law reform in New Hampshire led to the lifting of the ban on blades, Dirk knives, daggers, and stiletto heels. [i] While this would have been revolutionary in itself, lawmakers passed a law next year to abolish complex local ordinance laws that fragmented the legality of knife possession. Sword makers in Toledo, Spain, developed a market for gold-plated lever automatic lure knives with bead handles and enamelled inserted blades in the 1920s. Italian knife manufacturers had their own knife style, which included both push-button and lever lock styles, some of which had design features similar to the Châtellerault knife of early French. [83] Before World War II, handmade automatic knives called Campobasso or Frosolone were often called flat guards because of the two-part upper bolster design. [83] Some Italian switching blades included a bayonet-shaped blade equipped with a blade shutter activated by lifting a locking flange on the hinge and were called picklock models. These knives were then replaced by new models that integrated the blade lock into a tilting cheek.

[83] In France, 19th century folding knives with the inscription Châtellerault were available in automatic and manually opened versions in different sizes and lengths. [79] Châtellerault blades have recognizable features such as «S» shaped cross guards, locking mechanisms, and decorative handles engraved in pearl and ivory. [79] In Spain, Admiral D`Estaing is credited with a kind of foldable naval dirk, which also served as a restoration device. [79] In a closed (folded) position, the end of the blade would protrude from the handle to be used on the dining table.
