Previously in another thread about trade knives, trade-knives-pdf-t1545.html I had brought up a second type of french folder that pivoted on one pin till it stopped in the open position against a second pin. I had little source documentation at the time because I didn't know what exactly to search for. Google search just gave me a lot of penny knives from sulter's catalogs. But, I have finally found the name of the knife, deux clous jambette (knife with two nails) Unfortunately, all the pages google search comes up with are in french, so it is most tedious trying to decipher.

I have a Diderot sketch as well!!!

So, for anyone who's persona is past at least the 1750's this is another option especially for the home blacksmith. It is very difficult trying to hammer a flange onto the back of a knife blank.
