Depends on the type the pocket knife you own. If it’s a shutting knife with a liner or frame lock like mine, you should be able to find a part at the top of the handle, just below the blade, that moves when the blade is out.
Usually, it’s saw-toothed so you can grip it better. That’s the liner or frame lock. Liner and frame locks work the same – the only difference is if it’s a liner, it has a separate lining that acts as the lock, while if it’s a frame, the frame itself is the lock.
To close both liner and frame locks, just find that saw-toothed portion that moves and push it out of the way of the blade and fold the blade simultaneously. Easy as that.
Here’s a video so you can understand it better.
If your pocket knife is the multipurpose type, those usually don’t have any locks, so just push the blade back to close it.
If you have a button or axis lock knife, it’s basically the same concept – you just have to find the piece that you can move like buttons, pins, or liners to release the lock on the blade and then fold the blade.
Just make sure your hands aren’t in the way of the blade because pocket knives are just portable finger guillotines lol
I have the frame lock type. You were really helpful. Thanks!
