    So I have a strange habit of wanting things I cannot have. I've done some reading lately about ballistic knives and would like to see/handle one. Does anyone have any information about these knives/related bans/commonality? I know they've been made illegal but is that just to own or sell or carry? Do any of you have them? Are they quality items? I know it's a silly idea but I think the concept of a ballistic knife is interesting.

    Dumb newbie qq: What's a sticky?

    I looked at the url and don't see anything unusual.

    I do like sticky buns but this isn't a baking forum.

    Saw it. So ballistic knifes fall under the same category as switchblades? It seems highly unlikely that these would be made legal anywhere...even in the states where switchblades are legal.

    TomTerrific look at the top of the forum page and you'll find sticky after sticky of threads that have been "stuck" so that they don't pass off the page. They're intended to provide information that is constantly needed or requested. - http://thehighroad.org/forumdisplay.php?f=13

    while the idea of a ballistic knife is cool, i've never seen or heard of one that was an effective weapon. i've heard that the Spesnaz used them, but as i don't hang out with them regularly, i don't know if that's true or not.

    being in any situation where you need a knife for self defense is bad enough. if you fired one, and missed your target...well, that's probably worse.

    No kidding. It honestly sounds like a horrible concept. It's still intriguing though.

    That's a Rube Goldberg gizmo in knife form if there ever was one.

    That site would be funny if it wasn't filled with literal disinformation.

    Wow, he manages to get social norms, animals, and medical knowledge wrong in as many paragraphs! To paraphrase, "That gun you have there is unacceptable, and your knife won't work either, so take this knife that shoots air to cause a blockage (which is medical term) in any mammal of any size!!"
