A Switchblade (also known as an automatic knife) is a type of knife with a sliding blade contained in the handle which is opened automatically by a spring when a button, lever, or switch on the handle is activated. A manually operated safety device fitted to the knife prevents the blade from opening in the event the button is accidentally pressed.
