Learning More about Burnside Knives

Headquartered in Portland, the American knife company has a promising future in the industry. Burnside offers a wide collection of multipurpose knives. These tools are primarily made using high-quality materials like stainless steel and titanium. Often used as camping knives, hunting knives, or outdoor knives, they usually come with single groove in the handle, which provides a comfortable grip. Featuring smooth finish, these knives can also be used for self-defense, slicing fruits and chopping vegetables. With hollow ground and curve-shaped blade, these knives make ideal kitchen knives. The best part— these knives are easy to maintain.


Knives with Unique Locking Mechanisms

Burnside Knives has carved its niche as the manufacturer of folding pocket knives that are available in two unique locking systems- Framelock and Linerlock. The Framelock knives have a basic lock-like system. It requires a convincing amount of thrust to open the blade. When you open the blade, the frame lock moves within the handle, creating a unique locking system. The knives are stronger than linerlock knives and offer more precise cuts. Compact in size with a liner inside the handle, the knives gained recognition during 1980s. The handle of these knives is cut from steel, which is comparatively thicker than the liner of other knife-lock mechanisms. Having an inner liner, the tip of the Framelock knife gets hooked at the bottom.


The linerlock knives were one of the biggest developments ever in the history of knife industry. Widely used by military personnel to everyday civilians, the liner lock knives have been fulfilling the cutting, chopping and slicing tasks for generations. Like other folding knives, these knives contain moving parts. These knives use a spring leaf in the handle to open and close the blade, preventing premature closure. The leaf is fabricated from titanium alloy or steel, keeping it functional and rust-proof for a long time. Perfect for single-handed opening, the knives are durable and smooth. These lock blade knives are easy to conceal, deploy, use, and close, making them popular among the outdoor enthusiasts. They are perfect to be used in tactical and survival toolkits.
