Liner-Lock – definition.
Liner-lock knives have a unique mechanism. It is one of the cut out bars that serves as a spring. To unlock the blade, move the spring bar sideways using your thumb as you close the blade with your index finger.
To release a liner type lock, use your thumb to push the spring bar downwards so that it is no longer in contact with the butt of the blade. This allows you to use your index finger to push the blade just enough to keep the bar pushed down so you can remove your thumb from the blade path, then continue to safely close the knife.

These Laguiole folding knives equipped with a liner-lock system are safe or “secured” - they require an adult’s hand and some handling to open them.

The features and advantages of the Laguiole liner-lock knife.
