According to experts, folding knives are currently experiencing a renaissance. First of all, this is due to the acceleration of technological progress – new materials have appeared, production methods have improved. We have not been surprised by ceramic knives for a long time, and the appearance of products with titanium coating has not become a curiosity. Grandmother's knives are being replaced by modern universal tools – their manufacturing industry is experiencing an extraordinary rise.
The appearance of the first folding knives dates back to the first millennium BC. Their analogues are found by archaeologists during excavations of cultural layers in ancient Roman settlements. Folding knives acquired their familiar look much later, in the 17th century in France.
The progenitor of the folding knife is the penknife. In the old days, it was indispensable during writing – goose feathers fluffed up and blunted – a knife was used to sharpen (grind) them.
Folding knife – features and specifications.
The main advantage of a folding knife is its small size. The blade of the product in non-working condition is in the handle, which makes it convenient for transportation. Modern knives have special tools for opening – a hole or a peg.
To fix the knife in the open state, knife locks of various types are used:
- liner-lock (linear);
- back-lock (backlock);
- axis-lock, plunge-lock, arc-lock (pin options);
- clasp-knife (clutch);
- ultralock (one of the varieties of linear).
Products are made of stainless steel grades 42O, 44OS, OA and 8Cr13MoV (analogue of Japanese steel AUS-8).
