Canadian Criminal Code, RSC 1985, c C-46

“prohibited weapon” means

(a) a knife that has a blade that opens automatically by gravity or centrifugal force or by hand pressure applied to a button, spring or other device in or attached to the handle of the knife, or

(b) any weapon, other than a firearm, that is prescribed to be a prohibited weapon;
I would think your knife meets the opens automatically by centrifugal force and therefore be deemed a "prohibited weapon"
