Folding Pocket Knives

The folding pocket knife has a non locking blade with a cutting edge below 3 inches long. The blade is held open by a spring which also helps to keep the blade closed when not in use. The strength of the blade spring varies with different manufacturers. A. Wright knives of Sheffield have one of the strongest blade springs on the market. A. Wright pocket knives are ideal as work knives as they are less likely to close accidentally in use, but are not recommended for those with weak fingers as they are also harder to open. Pocket knives with a wider blade shape may be preferred as work knives as these can be opened more easily by grasping the blade.
