(Sistema de ) bloqueo de seguridad de cuchilla
Explanation:
“Positive blade” no tiene sentido por sí mismo, ya que no se refiere a la cuchilla en sí, sino al sistema de bloqueo. La expresión completa es “positive blade locking”, es decir, “bloqueo seguro/de seguridad de cuchilla”. El término “positive” no lo interpreto como “positivo”, sino como “seguro” o “de seguridad”. Se trata de un mecanismo de seguridad muy común en este tipo de herramientas: navajas, cuchillas, etc. Para una cuchilla (cutter) el mecanismo de bloqueo normalmente es de tipo botón, para afirmar la cuchilla en la posición deseada y evitar su desplazamiento que podría dar lugar a cortes.

Folding knives themselves are well known in the art and comprise many types and styles. Such knives typically include a handle having an elongated knife blade pivotally mounted thereto. The knife blade may be conveniently pivoted from an extended or operative position in general longitudinal alignment with the handle to a retracted position wherein at least the blade cutting edge is received in a receiving channel or pocket defined by the handle. (…) However, since such spring mechanisms do not facilitate positive blade locking, the blade can be inadvertently and suddenly moved from the extended position toward the retracted position during knife use to create the potential for serious injury.
There have also been a number of foldable knife designs which have included positive locking means as a part thereof for preventing undesired or premature knife closings. Typically, such positive locking means have comprised cooperating locking members and locking notches to achieve POSITIVE BLADE RETENTION at least when it is in an extended or operative position. Various release means disposed in or adjacent the handle facilitate selective release of the locking means to permit knife closing. Most of these prior designs are generally satisfactory for locking purposes, at least when the knives are new or have been kept clean at all times. However, the release means normally associated therewith are typically plainly visible to the eye when merely viewing or otherwise examining the knife constructions. Although the visibility and location of such release mechanisms do not generally affect knife operation, they can and do detract from the overall knife aesthetics.
