The government is able to reach into the pockets of Americas millions of pocket knife users to limit the type of knife they can own, thanks to a novel and expansive interpretation of the 1958 Switchblade Knife Act. This half-century old law prohibited the importation into the U.S.of, or the interstate commerce in, automatic switchblade and stiletto knives. As recently as last August, the CPB interpreted the law with a common sense view, in approving requests by knife companies to import and market new products.
