A Gravity Knife
A gravity knife is a knife having blade in its handle; it will open by the gravitational force provided by the person. As we can push or throw the knife then the gravitational force happens and the knife automatically opens. The knife requires the spring or the gravity to open.it can be open and close by one hand, it is the best advantage of it the .
The main purpose of the gravity knife is that to help the paratroopers to free themselves from the tricky parachutes. The main design of the gravity knife is that it can be used only by one hand as the many other knives are there which is used by two hands like the butterfly knife but we can use this knife only with one hand.
The first introduction of this knife was introduced in Germany. This is firstly issued by the Germany paratroopers and the flight crew members of Germany. After that, it would be transport to every city and most of the countries to use it.
The main purpose of the gravity knife is that to use it with the one hand if we are working with the other. This is the one that has its blade folded in its handed otherwise the most of the knife has the blade at its upper side. This is mainly used by the paratroopers. This knife has a blade in the metal knife which is fitted in the wooden handle to save the hand while spinning the knife. When we throw the knife from one hand the blade open and extend as much it can extend. It is simpler to close the knife as compared to open it. This knife is introduced first in the year 1937 at the world war time. This knife is used to cut the parachutes to get them free from this.
The gravity knife is also called the switchblades as they have blades which are run by the gravitational force. This knife has been illegal in some states as the people can misuse them and also used for bad purposes. It will consider as the knife associated with the criminals. These knives protect the owner from the blade and when the blade is in not use the lever can be accidentally triggered sometimes but we can correct it easily. This is easy to use and also help us to get protected from enemies.
There were mainly two types of the gravity knife. One type is that the side folding and the other one is the OTF (out the front). The knife can be manually open with the button and closed according to little bit push. The first one is that if we want to open the knife then we have to apply little force or little energy to press the button as soon as the button will press the blade of the knife open instantly. This is the simple way to open the knife easily and quickly. The OTP or the out the front knife are the single or the dual action knives.
The best advantage of having this knife is that it can be open by the one hand. Also having the advantage of anything we also have the disadvantages of it. The main disadvantage of having is that if we put the knife in the pocket by the gravitational force or the other force automatically it can be open then it will be harmful to the body. The knife will open and their blades are sharp then it will easily harm the body parts.so we have to use it carefully with the proper care.
We can throw the knife by the various methods and various positions can be used to throw it. The first one is that take the proper grip, as we have to hold the knife very carefully. Wrap the hand to the knife loosely so that when we throw the knife it will go at its position where we have to throw it. After this pinch the knife handle between our thumb and the length of our middle finger.
The thumb will allow the proper rotation of the blade after when we release the knife from the hand. Every knife has the different centre of the balance; the gravity knife can be balanced by the thumb or the middle finger so that if we throw it will go to its place very easily. throwing the knife is easy but we have to set the target first where we have to throw the knife and what was the length and distance between the knife and the target all we have to take care about it and also we have the knowledge about it.
Having the proper knowledge of the throwing of the knife will increase your sense of thinking. Then come the throw part all the position has been set and the target also, now it’s time to throw the knife to throw the knife raise the knife up beside our head part then take the position. Keep parallel to the target and then throw the knife. Definitely, it will hit your target if you use the proper instructions to follow it.
The other method to throw the knife is that we can hold the knife in a different way. Hold the knife with the half of the knife so that we have the perfect grip of it. Grab the knife high up from the handle and then hold it tight. To have this position we have to fist relax our shoulder properly so stretch our shoulder one time so that it will get relax. After this take the same position gain hold the knife with the hold of the knife then pull he arm beside of the head and then throw it with using the entire arm.it becomes like the 180-degree angle we have to throw the knife in this manner. We can use the knife easily but having the knowledge of using it and throwing it is the main thing.
