Switchblade Knife Information shares new, current and historical information about automatic opening knives.
An Encomium of the Drop-Knife.
No knife is so slick,
It is quick on its trick
And a joy that will last you through life.
There is none ‘neath the sun
Just like it, not one,
It’s the Schrade Safety Push-Button Knife.
If the button is pressed
The blade does the rest,
Opens out like a thing all alive;
You break no thumb nail
In your efforts—that fail—
If you’re owning this Push-Button Knife.
It’s the handiest yet,
It is everyone’s pet,
And with all good knife merits it’s rife.
Its blades are rare steel,
And really ideal
Is this notable Push-Button Knife.
It’s the very quick pick
Of club, class, and clique,
Its equal they cannot contrive;
It’s a true treasure trove,
And a thing you will love
Is this wonderful Push-Button Knife.
