Could also have put this on the EDC knife thread. I decided to stop using vintage knives as my EDC after I nearly lost an old Rigid brass and wood folder (that had been in the family) at work recently. This Buck Bantam is really nice, caught my eye in the display case at the Natick Outdoor Store over the summer. Will try not to lose it but it is replaceable if I do...
spring assisted is legal in mass, so far. it's not a push the button automatic. besides, the fact that you bought it in a walmart in massachusetts tells you everything you need to know, you think they'd have it on the shelf if it were a no-no? while not a legal barometer a pretty good indicator. i use to sell knives at the shows, had a couple of tables up until a few years ago and was pretty well read on the law. my biggest sellers were anything spring assisted from kershaw, probably cause people think they're the evil switchblade.I bought a knife at Walmart in Massachusetts (Kershaw 16700LBLk) that has a spring assist open. I carry it daily but after reading some of the posts above I am concerned that it is not legal to carry.
