    Legally, you can own one if your over 18. But you cannot carry it around on you unless you have a concealed weapons permit. Again I say legally.

    Ever since I saw the movie Kickass, I've thought butterfly knives were pretty cool (:

    where do you get your info?
    knife laws (other than switch blades) are by blade length
    try this
    go to local army surplus store.
    say can i see that butterfly knife.
    say are there any laws pertaining to ownership.a surplus store can tell you this,a flee market will not.

    Lies. They're legal to own in GA regardless of age. You can carry them, just not concealed (pocket clip=good to go.)

    I guess you'd have to define ownership, you can't walk into a gas station, or retail store and buy a knife unless your 18. Due to the length of the blade, it is not considered a "pocket knife".

    Once again, not true. GA has no law whatsoever regarding the age you have to be to purchase a knife.

    Because my dad said that i'd probably accidently cut my finger off with it. Sad
    Soooo he wouldn't loan my twenty dollars because their too dangerous for me apparently.

    I convinced my dad after pleading and begging for him to buy me a sidefolding knife one time when I was 13. He said I would cut myself folding it up, but he finally buckled. 3 days later, 5 stitches across my index finger, cut right to the bone, folding it up. Laughing

    lol....been using knives since i got my first pocket knife at 6...the only time i cut myself was the first time i used a butterfly and grabbed the wrong handle to flip it closed...the key with them is just remembering to always hang on to the handle that is on the same side as the back of the blade...after you've make an effort to do that it will just become second nature through practice...
