An OTF automatic knife which is also known as an out-the-front knife, the sliding knife is a pocket knife with a blade that opens and closes through a hole in one end of the handle.

There have been myths surrounding OTF automatic knife/switchblades that they are illegal everywhere without exception which is not true.

The truth is most laws about non-firearm weapons are by state, with very few at Federal level. All the laws have no effects on buying, owning or carrying switchblades. The majority of states allow legal ownership of switchblades or OTF automatic knife, but a few do not.

So, now we will look at how to get the right knife.

OTF automatic knife is tremendously serving the purpose and has gained immense popularity with a little help from the mainstream media. They are very unique on its own and a very limited number of brands manufacture them.

OTF automatic knife is a type of switchblade that deploys with just a press of a button. The knife features a blade which just comes out the front.

Let us look at the features that you must keep in mind while purchasing the best OTF automatic knife.

Deployment Style

Automatic Mechanism

OTF knives have their blades deploying straight from the handle. The double action OTF knives feature a double-action mechanism which uses spring system – a quick one.

Single action spring

The spring in one-action spring mechanism deploys the blade automatically, however, you need to retract the blade manually and reload the lever.

Blade Size

What should be the blade size?

Well, it depends on the intended work. A long blade is good to go for rough and tough expeditions. If you want to use it for the everyday task then shorter is better.

Blade Material

OTF automatic knife typically uses a stainless steel blade. It is important to keep in mind the percentage of carbon and chromium used in the knife. OTF knife with a high amount of chromium is durable and expensive.

These are the basic points one must consider before buying an OTF automatic knife. Hope it helps you.
