Legal or not, my approach to it is as a tool-user. And I can't see this performing any function at all well. When you need to undo a nut, there is rarely a wide clear expanse in asix-inch radius around it. This device is a gimmick, not a tool.

Barred by Cal. Penal Code 16590 under generally prohibited weapons. The same holds true in NYC, and the states of MO & KS (undoubtedly, many more - a quick look at the websites of companies that manufacture and sell the actual "weapon" (these things were intended as a distraction rather than a deadly weapon) will list the states and certain cities they won't sell to due to legal restrictions.

Here's the problem with the gadget: it does have many functions - but, included in the great number of functions is the obvious use as a thrown "weapon" that may be concealed upon the body of a person. Depending upon the circumstances and federal/state/county/city law you could wind up facing criminal charges ranging from a "violation" (like a speeding ticket) to a felony (don't take this thing with you when boarding your next commercial flight).

It's probably fine sitting in your tool kit at home - screwdrivers are legal when used as screwdrivers - and illegal when classified as burglar's tools or a stabbing weapon.
