Friction Folding Knives
Friction folding knives are the original folding pocket knife. Before the invention of slipjoint and locking knives, all folding knives used the friction of the blade tang against the handle and the pressure of your hand to stay open. The absence of a lock means that these knives are best for light cutting tasks. Friction folding knives are known for their clean, minimalist lines and elegant designs. They are an excellent choice in areas where knife laws prohibit the use of locking knives, such as the UK.
