Lock Knives

A good lock knife is characterised by several key features that ensure safety, reliability, and functionality. Firstly, it should have a sturdy and durable construction, typically made from high-quality materials such as stainless or carbon steel for the blade and a robust handle material like stag antler or canvas micarta. The locking mechanism is crucial for safety, as it prevents the blade from accidentally closing during use. Common types of locking mechanisms include liner locks, frame locks, and lockback mechanisms, each offering robust levels of security and ease of use. A good lock knife should have a locking mechanism that is strong, easy to engage, and capable of securely holding the blade in place while in use.
