Lockback Knives

View all Lockback Knives

Lockback knives aren't just popular, they're the definitive design for EDC blades. They're what most of us think of when we think of traditional pocketknives, and humanity has been relying on them for over five centuries. The lockback pocketknife is so important, in fact, that we think no one should ever leave the house without one. And that's why we've put together one of the best collections of lockback knives ever assembled. Whether you're new to knives or a seasoned collector, if you just "need a knife," then this is the collection for you.

A classic lockback knife operates using a spine mechanism on a backspring that snaps into the blade's heel when opened, preventing the blade from accidentally closing while in use. Unlike linerlock knives, where the release mechanism is part of the handle's lining, the release button of a lockback knife is usually towards the back of the handle.

A tradition of strength and safety.

While they aren't as quick to deploy as assisted opening knives and aren't "always on" like fixed blade knives, lock blade styles are the workhorses of the knife world. No other tool perfectly balances portability, convenience, and strength, and no other tool is better to have on hand in a pinch.

While the locking pocketknife has been in use for generations, the lock blades at Knife Country USA are anything but old-fashioned. While we proudly offer loving homages to traditional blades (that also happen to be virtually unstoppable), we also offer some of the most innovative bladelock knives on the market today. Tradition and quality always work together in this collection.
