It’s the bird’s beak knife. Aptly named because the small, curved blade resembles a bird’s beak, this little knife is smaller than a paring knife, with a short two- to three-inch blade (a paring knife’s is four to seven inches), but infinitely more useful. But be careful, it’s extremely sharp.
Woodworker: For classical purists who need a heavy-duty, professional grade knife that can handle the deep cuts, there is the L-1. It is poetic in its simplicity using carbon-steel blades mounted into a stainless steel body that is meant for punishment.
It looks more like the knife in a picture I've seen w/ James Dean in front of his dressing room with a switchblade stuck in the door with the James Dean tag pinned by it I think an 11" Brazillian horn picklock Italian stiletto ( It may have been a 13" but thats a seperate story altogether....).
And so, alas, is the “spetsnaz” ballistic knife. The USSR and its successor the Russian Federation do not establish their special operations forces by wishful thinking or magic, but the same way every other serious nation does, by careful selection and intensive training.
An assisted opening knife, sometimes called a spring-assisted knife, is a knife that springs open only after the blade is slightly pushed open with force. Unlike the switchblade, nothing holds down the assisted opening knife when it's in the closed position.
A utility knife is a knife used for general or utility purposes. The utility knife was originally a fixed blade knife with a cutting edge suitable for general work such as cutting hides and cordage, scraping hides, butchering animals, cleaning fish, and other tasks. Craft knives are tools mostly used for crafts.
