    i've tried reading the texas penal code concerning assisted opening knives a couple of times now and it's making my brain fuzzy.

    are assisted opening knives legal for civilian carry in the state of texas? or are they classified as automatic/switchblade knives?

    The laws in most states are vague to say the least on knives.

    This is from Texas penal code chapter 46.

    Based on that I would say that assisted openers are legal in your state as long as it doesn't have a button to release the blade, and you have overcome the bias toward closure before the spring kicks in and opens the blade. But you still might check with law enforcement or and attourney.
