Can an Automatic Knife Make Good Everyday Carry?

Most automatic switchblades are designed to be tactical and weapon-like, but Tekto Gear designed the Slit to be carried and used on a daily basis.


There’s something satisfying about flipping the switch on an automatic knife and watching the blade appear and disappear in less than seconds. Automatics are typically overtly tactical and weapon-like, but Tekto Blade designed the Slit for everyday carry. Its handle is made of a lightweight and sturdy zinc-aluminum alloy, and its blade is 440 stainless steel. Together, the combination works to make the knife sleek and minimal, like everyday carry blades should be. The Slit is also equipped with additional practical features that typically switchblades won’t have, such as a window breaker, a nylon scabbard and pocket clip.

Note: Owning and carrying an automatic knife isn’t legal in every state due to the Federal Switchblade Act. You can read about how the law works in your state here.
