A switchblade (shortened switch, but also known as an automatic knife, pushbutton knife, ejector knife, spring knife (Sprenger, Springer), flick knife, or flick blade) is a type of knife with a sliding blade contained in the handle which is extended automatically by a spring when a button, lever, or switch on the handle or bolster is activated. Most switchblade designs incorporate a locking blade, in which the blade is locked against closure when the blade is extended to the fully opened position. It is unlocked by a mechanism that allows the blade to be folded and locked in the closed position.
During the 1950s, US newspapers as well as the tabloid press promoted the image of a new violent crime wave caused by young male delinquents with a stiletto, switchblade, or flick knife, based mostly on anecdotal evidence. In 1954, Democratic Rep. James J. Delaney of New York authored the first bill submitted to the U.S. Congress banning the manufacture and sale of switchblades, beginning a wave of legal restrictions worldwide and a consequent decline in their popularity.

One of these is a lever lock and the black...
So, in the coming days I would like to order some switchblades. Why? Just because. And it is a really gonzo letter opener. In adulthood, I'm not really a knife guy, but would be interested where have you guys ordered your automatic knives? Many thanks.
I have what appears to be an older switchblade. I’m not much of a knife expert so I’m looking for anyone who might know a little more about it. From what I can find it’s a larger swinguard style. The blade says Milano. The handle scales are missing and I’m wondering if that’s something that can...
