Pocket knives are known as the perfect Everyday Care (EDC) tools. Did you know that? We see regular fixed blade knives in kitchens more frequently but this doesn’t change the fact that pocket knives are more useful, reliable and easy to use as well. Pocket knives are those small knives which are foldable. This means that their blades are movable and can be tucked inside the handle providing them a cover resulting in the safety of the carrier and this mechanism also makes these knives more compact which increases their usefulness.
There are so many pocket knives available in markets nowadays and when I say so many, it means loads and loads of such knives. They are available in so many different types and forms and are easily available all over the world. Before you proceed to buy pocket knives you must have a basic knowledge about pocket knives. Pocket knives generally come in two types. They are:
1- Spring Assisted Pocket Knives
2- Automatic Switchblades
Spring Assisted Pocket Knives
The spring assisted pocket knives are those which operate via a spring mechanism. These knives generally have a thumb stud or a flipper which facilitate in the opening of these knives when pressure is exerted on them, mostly with the help of a thumb. They are safer than automatic switchblades and this is why they are legal in most of the states.
Automatic switchblades are those which open and close with the help of a button and this is why they cause more injuries and accidents and are illegal in most of the states of America.
