These are made originally for peeling fruit but everybody carried one the old days for protection. The blades semi-lock in numerous positions on humps at the swivel point as can be seen in #1 & locks firmly as the other pix show when fully opened. As I remember from the 70's & 80's, they were made in Sheffield but this one says S. Africa. When they are loosened up enough, they can be flipped open with your bird finger holding up the ring.
