This is a common question with Axis-Lock knives like the Griptillian.First off i live in connecticut I recently bought a benchmade griptilian 551 straight edge axis assist knife. The sharpened blade length is 3.5 inches. Was reading online about ct state knife laws and I'm lost. My interpretation of the law on carrying folding knives is; blade has to be 4" or shorter and cannot be automatic opening or a "gravity assisted opening knife". The griptian has axis assist but not automatic but can be easily opened with a simple flick of the wrist. So I just want to know if i will have a problem carrying this knife around in public. Main purpose for the knife is to carry with me when hiking/backpacking for worst case scenario. Any info to clarify the laws would be much appreciated. Thanks all.
