A federal appeals court on Friday upheld the constitutionality of New York state's ban on gravity knives, which can be opened to a locked position with a one-handed flick of the wrist.

The decision is a defeat for the artist John Copeland and art dealer Pedro Perez, both arrested for violating the ban, as well as Native Leather Ltd, a retailer that agreed to test its knife inventory and submit to inspections to avoid prosecution.
