  • Publication number: 20210101297
    Abstract: The present invention is a a folding knife apparatus which uses multiple components to create a system providing multiple benefits to the user. The knife can be quickly disassembled and assembled again with the use of tools. The pocket clip can be repositioned without changing mounting location and/or can be removed without tools. The blade lock which secures the blade in the open position can be adjusted for spring tension or removed and reinstalled without use of tools. The blade can be opened from a protrusion outside the handle with can pass by the blade stop without contact and be enclosed in handle when blade is in open position. The scales of the knife can be mounted on the frame to make up the handle by using screws which have a tool interface face inside the knife so that the outside screw head can be smooth or decorative.
