Horizon Bladeworks specializes in Switchblade knives and Italian Stiletto knives. These switchblade knives are authentic genuine switchblades made by hand from various Italian knife makers. These are not far east copies. A switchblade knife (also known as an automatic knife) is a type of knife with a folding or sliding blade contained in the handle which is opened automatically by a spring when a button, lever, or switch on the switchblade knifes handle or bolster is activated. A manually-operated safety device fitted to most switchblades prevents the blade from opening in the event the button is accidentally depressed. Most switchblade knife designs incorporate a locking blade, in which the blade is locked against closure when the spring extends the blade to the fully-opened position. The blade is unlocked by manually operating a mechanism that unlocks the blade and allows it to be folded and locked in the closed position.
