    Assisted Opening Knives now prohibited import

    Customs Notice 18-01

    Ottawa, January 5, 2018

    1. This Notice is to advise interested parties that the Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) has rendered a decision in Appeal No. AP-2017-012, T. LaPlante v. President of the Canada Border Services Agency regarding knives which open automatically by centrifugal force (centrifugal knives).

    2. In accordance with subsection 84(1) of the Criminal Code and the CITTís recent decision in T. LaPlante, the CBSA resolves that centrifugal knives will be classified as prohibited weapons if the following conditions are met:

    a knife has a blade that opens by centrifugal force, when the blade is released from the handle into the fully ejected and locked position with a simple and brisk outwardly flick of the wrist; and
    it includes knives that require some preliminary or simultaneous minimal manipulation of either a flipper or other non-edged parts of the blade.


    3. Please be advised that the CBSA will immediately prohibit the importation of all knives that open as per the CITTís decision. For more detailed information concerning the decision, please consult the decision posted on the Tribunalís website at: CITT Appeal No. AP-2017-012.

    4. For further information regarding the interpretation of the CITTís decision, please contact:

    So they've banned spring assisted knives, effectively.
    And ones without the assist and just a thumb stud will need to be over tightened to prevent easy opening before import.

    So what if my knife does not require centrifugal force? It only needs "manipulation of either a flipper or other non-edged parts of the blade."

    Stupid, useless bureaucrats trying to justify their outrageous salaries by turning this country into a sh_thole just like Britain.

    Well...we'll see how stringently they're checking. Just ordered a couple (not the above model, but the same mechanism/operation) off ebay.

    So by that definition it's any knife that can be opened by flicking your wrist....it doesn't even say spring assisted....so basically any folding knife
