    Ohio, you would be going to jail! But really why even bother carrying, unless you are wearing it all the time! By the time you get those suckers on, you will have a gun drawn on you or have your ass handed to you before you even slip your fingers into them.

    Arrow SC Law

    Brass knuckles are illegal in Alabama. Can be fined $50.00 to $500.00 and six months in county jail.

  5. So to sum it up I think brass knuckles are illegal everywhere. I'm on my phone so I can't quote but reading the stat from Washington I think my 3inch knife is illegal there wtf! To open you hold it from the side and press down on a certain part and the blade slides up from the other side. It's not mechanical or a switch blade but it basically said any knife that can be extracted without having to physically pull the blade out

    I don't worry about brass knuckles or the like, just my .02

    If I'm that close to someone who is likely bigger, meaner, faster and more evil than I am well, I'm gunna likely be toast. I know that hand to hand and associated gun retention is an important consideration and sometimes i wish I'd spend more time with it...

    Anyway, I am too lazy to look into my states laws regarding brass knuckles. :-(

    Maybe not. Define "pull". Can "push" suffice? If so, you must push (or pull) the thumb stud to start the action and is not therefore an "auto" knife, right? I'm not a lawyer so maybe someone who is on the cutting edge of knife law can comment on this. ;-)

    That is incorrect, in SC they are not unless you are using them to commit a crime.
