Types of knives
Here are different types of knives to better understand them!
The folding or closing knife
The folding knife, so called closing knife, consists of 2 different parts, of more or less equal length: the blade and the handle. The blade is bound with the handle in which it comes to find accommodation when the knife is not used. We also speak about pocketknife because once the blade folded up in the knife-handle, it skips easily into the pocket and can become enraged everywhere!
A "security" mechanism can control said blocking the blade in the open position and its voluntary withdrawal. This allows to use a knife safely because the blade does not close unexpectedly on the fingers. All folding knives are still not equipped with security systems. There are many security systems in accordance with the knives models.
