    Is there an understandable discussion on what is and what isn't a "springblade" anywhere?
    The Washinton RCWs are not the place...probably by intentional design.

    Are you talking about assisted opening knives?

    I'm talking about the confusion in the RCWs as to what exactly a springblade knife. Is a knife that you start to open with your thumb and then flip open by snapping your wrist or knives that have some type of protrusion that can be snagged on a pocket as you draw the knife causing it to open. Neither of these have any kind of spring that causes the blade to open yet the RCW appears to classify them as springblade knives.

    It's vague and I'm pretty sure that it is never enforced for anything other than a "auto" knife.

    Lived in Washington for 40 years and never worried about carrying an assisted opening knife or any other pocket knife besides an auto knife.
