A folding knife that has a lock release at the rear of the back of the handle. A basic functional lock that is relatively simple and low cost to manufacture. In practice the lock design positions a stop bar parallel to and in direct line with the blade at the upper back or rear tang of the blade to lock the blade open. Basically, as the blade is rotated open, the spring tensioned, center pivoted stop bar tracks around the circular portion of the blade tang until it drops or locks into the notched out tang. And to release the lock, the exposed portion of the stop bar in the handle back is depressed into the handle, pivoting the stop bar out, releasing the locked blade. This style of locking mechanism requires two hands to safely close the blade although you may still easily open the blade single-handed if desired. Design of knife that has a locking mechanism located on the back of a folding knife. The mechanism keeps the blade open in a safely locked position when open. A folding knife with a locking blade, the lock of which is released by pressure on the rocker bar or spring at or near the end of the back of the handle.
