Microtech Ultratech knife

From what I understand, an automatic knife is permitted to own, but everything I see from online sales sites prohibited shipping to Maryland. I have a CCW, and understand that I can also carry them too.... as I read the rules. Can someone clarify?

I have a CCW. I carry an automatic knife.

First off, the ultratech, troodon, and others like them are not true autos. No stored energy until you load up the actuation mechanism by pressing forward. Mechanically no difference between this and an assisted opening folder.

Now the halo 7 is a different ballgame. That thing is a true auto. Stored energy released by the press of a button that is on the side of the handle.

Most ultratechs are double edged, which makes them a no-no in MD for carrying around. Considered a dagger (named in statute).

As for a person who has a w&c, and is within any restrictions their permit otherwise has, you should be fine. On a practical level, I'd advise against an ultratech, particularly a double edged model, for daily carry. They are well made but because they are not true autos they deploy with little force. A few sheets of copy paper will stop deployment at partial open (not locked in place) and that is no good under dire conditions. Add in the very small handle (troodon are bigger) and ease of slippage during thrusting and a quality folder is what I opt for generally.

If you just have to get one because they are cool (they are) just talk to the guys at redhill tactical. I suggest a halo, though.

OP is conflating automatic with ultratech ( thread title). He does state that he has a w&c, so the auto issue isn't a problem for his specific case.

Everyone should own cool stuff. I do. Just as I don't usually carry a BBQ gun out and about in daily life, I don't carry a six hundred plus dollar Marfione custom auto in my pocket every day. I'm not in an income bracket where losing it due to using it on some assailant wouldn't trouble me. Glocks or czs and a benchmade in the pocket. All are replaceable for reasonable prices. Handmade knives and custom built handguns stay at home.

Thanks everyone for the info. I went ahead and got the UltraTech from eknives as suggested.

I also EDC either a custom CZ or my 360pd, so this knife is just an added tool in the arsenal. I love the great advice from all on here.

I'm not saying someone shouldn't carry such things if the replacement will not bother them emotionally or financially.

Custom knives in my case are either a significant expenditure, made by people I am close to, or both. Ditto my custom guns. If someone thinks they are taking one of these items, that will be after a second potentially dangerous confrontation (probably a fight).

If you aren't bothered by replacement of your mk6 (or your hand built 1911 that you have a month of your time in) then I can't fault your decision.
