Here's one of the most simple designs. The reason I put this in the manual section is that even though this is a gravity knife it can be made legal. The difference is that in a gravity knife the blade is loose enough to slide forward by gravity or centrifugal force (snapping your wrist), but if tight enough or if something like magnets were used, the blade would not be able to open unless you grabbed the knob and manually slid it forward and back.
That is a HUGE difference in a court of law.
If a cop is standing in front of a judge with your knife in his hand and he can give 3 or 4 tries to snap that open and it opens they will call it a gravity knife and it's illegal. BUT if it is made so it will not open unless you move it by hand it's NOT a gravity knife and the mechanics of the knife are legal.
Do what you can with it. It's a simple and easy gravity knife, but can also be a great manual OTF knife.
And a manual Out-The-Front knife with legal blade length strapped to your arm is NOT illegal. It is not illegal to carry that way and nothing says it can't be strapped down.
But remember the cops and the courts will still see you as carrying a weapon...because that's really what it is. You know it and I know it and they know it. So always be smart and be careful.

Also known as a Retractable Forearm Dagger, Xiphoid is a class of weapons with a blade that is retractable into a forearm worn wristband/bracer sheath. Designed for swift and quick surprise attacks. It is notable for being evolved from the Katar and the Pata, punching swords with the blade sitting inline with the users fist..
There's two kinds of people in this world when you boil it all down.
You've got your 'talkers' and you've got your 'doers'.
Most people are just talkers, all they got is talk. But when all is said and done, it's the doers who change this world. And when they do that, they change us. And thats why we never forget them...
So which one are you? Do you just talk about it or do you stand up and do something about it? Because believe you me, all the rest of it is just bullshit.
