Pocket knives & multitools
When you think of American pocket knives you think of decent and tough knives. Knives that are made with precision and are made to be used. In the United States there is a real knife culture. You will find more people carrying a knife there than throughout all of Europe. For that reason the developments in the world of knives follow each other in a rapid pace. Mechanisms, materials and designs we find throughout the world today originally come from USA knives. Think of the framelock and the linerlock for instance.
