    It looks like you can't own one in Illinois:

    Not all states do, but IL is one of the states that prohibits possession of switchblades.

    We've discussed the legality of switchblades in the US and various states before in this forum. If you want to know if they're legal to own or carry you can search that information out here at THR NFW or you can google "switchblade laws" and check any number of websites that summarizes the laws for all 50 states.
