Let me start by explaining friction folders. A friction folding knife is a non-locking knife that has the tang (the part of the knife behind the blade) extended out so when the knife fold into an open position, your palm keeps it from closing(as shown in the last photo). This knife happens to be the svord peasant knife. I really like this knife but I've had it cut me before when using it from it closing on me. This mod provides a temporary lock for the knife the keeps it on the open position. WARNING: although this is a temporary lock, it will not substitute for a real lock. Do not put this knife to hard use. If you use your knife correctly, you shouldn't have the knife close on you.
