Probably falls under the category of restricted knives that are only legal to carry for military and law enforcement.

Automatics are a no-no. There are many places in the USA where you can be licensed to carry concealed, but you still aren't allowed to have an automatic knife. Kind of stupid, but there you have it.

Yup. Dropped about 4 bills back when they were hard to find...

It's illegal to carry an auto in mass. It's also illegal to carry a double-edged blade. No arrest and no weapons charges so its all good

I know from experience that D2 with 12% chrome will not take a small angle edge ( 30 deg included).
Not sure about the A2 yet. Haven't had the knife long enough to put it to work.
