Stop pin

Stop pins are important components in the manufacture of folding knives. They are used to secure the knife's locking mechanism and prevent the blade from closing suddenly or folding accidentally during use. Stop pins are usually inserted into the handle of the knife and act as a stopping point for the blade when it is extended.

Here are some key points about stop pins in knife making:

  • Material: Stop pins are generally made from robust materials such as stainless steel, titanium or other wear-resistant alloys. The material used often depends on the level of quality and performance sought for the finished knife.
  • Location : Stop pins are strategically placed in the knife handle to ensure proper operation of the locking mechanism. They are often located near the hinge where the blade folds into the handle.
  • Role in the locking mechanism: When the blade is fully extended, the stop pin engages in a notch on the blade, preventing the blade from closing in an uncontrolled manner. This ensures the stability and safety of the knife during use.

In summary, stop pins are essential components in the manufacture of folding knives, as they ensure the correct operation of the locking mechanism and contribute to the safety and durability of the finished knife. Their design and location must be carefully considered to ensure a quality knife.
