More precise questioning than my last topic.

Jun 9, 1999
More accurately I am looking for information on locking folders, especially the spring mechanisms that are used in them, what are they made of where can I find designs for them, how are they held in the knife, etc.
Once again any help that can be offered will be greatly appreciated.
