    Benchmade Armed Force 9050 Auto $120

    Gwinnett County GA

    One owner knife, carried little, never sharpened, barely a scratch on it except for the carry clip.

    Below was pulled from http://www.benchmade.com/products/9050#

    The AFO is in an elite class of proven tools on active duty throughout all branches of the armed forces the world over. Effortless, single-hand rapid deployment of a utility ridden blade design. Tough blade steel gets sharp and stays there longer. Integrated safety is easily actuated to lock the blade open or closed. Formidable, machined aluminum handle fills the hand with grip. Movable steel pocket clip for versatile/accessible carry. Dependable form and function are crucial to success in the extremes of your world- the 9050 is always mission ready.

    Comes with a hooded, ballistic nylon sheath for belt or lashed carry. $120

    $125 shipped.

    Note US Code 15 US 1244 (2-4):
    "Switchblade knives can be shipped by common carrier, that sale, transportation or
    distribution, possession or introduction into interstate commerce of switchblade knives is authorized if it is pursuant to a contract with the armed forces or any member or employee thereof acting in the performance of his or her duty may possess switchblade
    knives and may have them shipped and sold to him or her."

    Can someone please explain this ^ Can I only sell to LEO or Military? Not at all?

  2. I am pretty intrested! Looks like a very cool knife, but I don't know if you can ship to Illinois. Also, would anyone know if you could EDC this in IL?

    Switchblades are illegal to carry in most states, but you can own and have them in your collection.

    In Georgia which is where the seller is from and coincidentally I am also in Gwinnett county a weapons permit applies to other weapons as well over the restricted blade size of 4" I believe. So yea all states are different but in Georgia it's not called ccw it's a weapons permit and covers a variety. So technically I can strap a sword on my back. Haha

    Yep CWP. In that case, maybe I should just keep it...unless you're interested? My CWP is good until 2016 at which point I'll renew.

    This wouldn't be considered a switchblade. Assisted opening is different and not, generally, considered to be any different than any other folder. A switchblade, by definition, is spring loaded and deployed by a switch, rather than by hand.


    As far as where it can be carried, it's going to vary by state. Most have some allowable blade length that doesn't require a permit. Some states have concealed weapons permits, where others have concealed handgun permits. FL has been a CWL from the beginning. Here in GA, we just got that recently; before that it was a Georgia Firearms License, which was misleading because it was only required to carry, where it sounds like it was required to purchase.

    You should praise me! I just bumped your thread to the forefront for better exposure. :D I have a hard time resisting a Benchmade, if it didn't have the steak knife edge I would buy it.

    Are you sure? This knife opens with the push of a button on the handle. A spring assisted knive opens with the thumb touching a thumb stud on the blade.
