Navaha is a knife that appeared because ordinary people in Spain had a ban on carrying long knives that could be used as cold weapons. But this is one of the versions of the origin of this knife. Another version is one of the old folding knives, and is from the Andalusian region of Southern Spain.
On Navaha used fixative, which is the precursor of the back-block, namely: a spring from the butt side, which is pressed with a lever or ring. History knows examples of such knives with a semi-folding blade, when the blade itself is longer than the handle. The shape of the blade has a characteristic butt bevel, and the knife handle itself, as a rule, has a bend at the very end.
