A pocketknife is a foldable knife with one or more blades that fold into the handle. They are also known as jackknives (jack-knife) or may be referred to as a penknife, though a penknife may also be a specific kind of pocketknife. A typical blade length is 5 to 15 centimetres (2 to 6 in). Pocketknives are versatile tools, and may be used for anything from whittling and woodcarving, to butchering small game, to opening an envelope, cutting twine, slicing a piece of fruit or as a means of self-defense. Specialised designs are also used for mushroom hunting.
