Folding Knives

Folding blades and folding knives are the most common knives to carry today for their ease of use and convenient carry. Folding blades perform nearly any task and are easily deployed in high stress situations.

A folding knife uses a pivot, allowing the blade to fold into the handle for light, easy carry. To prevent injury through the blade accidentally closing on the user's hand, folding knives typically have a locking mechanism. Different locking mechanisms are favored by various individuals for reasons such as perceived strength (lock safety), legality, and ease of use.

In the lock back, as in many folding knives, a stop pin acting on the top (or behind) the blade prevents it from rotating. To release the knife the rocker bar is pushed downwards.

The bolt in the bolt lock uses a spring which biases the bolt to the forward position where it rests above the tang of the blade preventing the blade from closing. Small knobs extend through the handle allow the user to slide the bolt backwards freeing the knife to close. 

In the liner lock, an "L"-shaped split in the liner allows part of it to move sideways against the handle to the centre of the knife where it rests against the flat end of the tang. To disengage, this leaf spring is pushed aside so it again rests flush against the handle allowing the knife to close. A frame lock is nearly identical but instead of using a thin liner inside the handle material uses a thicker piece of metal that makes up the handle.

Another prominent feature on many folding knives is the opening mechanism. Traditional pocket knives and Swiss Army knives commonly employ the nail nick, while modern folding knives more often use a stud, hole, disk, or flipper located on the blade, all which have the benefit of allowing the user to open the knife with one hand.

We carry many brands of folding blades and folding knives from Windlass Cobra SteelCold SteelGerber, KershawBoker, Spyderco and American Buffalo Knife & Tool.

Review of: Old Fashioned Sunfish Ace of Spades Pocket Knife

I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS POCKET KNIFE FOR A LONG TIME AND IT WAS WELL WORTH THE WAIT. THE PHOTO IS GOOD BUT WHEN YOU GET TO SEE AND HOLD THE KNIFE IT'S DEFINITELY A TOP QUALITY PURCHASE TO OWN. THE SHIPPING WAS FAST, YOU GET A LIVING CUSTOMER SERVICE REP. AND THE BLADE IS SUPER SHARP. NOT TO MENTION THE VERY CLASSIC TYPE BOX IT COMES WITH. I ADMIRE IT (BOTH SIDES) AND NEVER WANT TO GIVE IT UP! YES, BUY THIS KNIFE :-)

Review of: Spanish Rib Tickler Folding Knife

For some reason, the moment I saw this knife in the catalog, I thought it would be nice.  So it turned out to be far nicer than it looked.  This little blade is beautifully made:  sleek and elegant.

Review of: Spanish Rib Tickler Folding Knife

I Admit I have wanted this for a while.   I always saw it,  didn't have one,  an impulse buy at a great price.   I love collecting knives and swords and this is a very cool knife.   I love the gray scales on this piece and the filing work on the spine.   A very good value,  it reminds me of a small version of the Spanish Navaja.   Again Thanks for carrying great knives at affordable prices,  especially when you're on a budget!

Sincerely,

Brian

Review of: Cobra Steel Sweeping Drop Point

I read some reviews of this knife. It seems people have unrealistic personal views of what makes a good edc. I have very many folders and can tell you that this knife is my absolute favorite. I am an ex sog operative from team 86 Vietnam 1969. This knife is way beyond the curve of what makes the perfect edc folder. I have cold steel, benchmade, boker, and every other high end production folders. This knife has no flaws, no bad manners, and is the most capable folder I own, with regards to price, quality, and usefulness. If you are looking for a four inch folder that is ultimately comfortable, and surely capable as a defensive weapon, I never feel underarmed, or underknifed with this Cobra beauty. Keep up the good work and sell a zillion of these perfect pocket knives. I am tempted to buy me a second one for good measure. Five stars and more.

Review of: Spyderco Native 5 Folding Knife

If you like smaller knives this is a classic.  It has a wide flat ground blade; plus super steel; for more serious cutting.  Light, ergonomic handle with attractive blue color. Smooth deployment. The Native is another 'must-have' knife.
