The Copperhead pocket knife is known for its distinctive bolster design, which resembles the head of a copperhead snake.  This unique bolster shape serves a practical purpose by preventing pocket snags, making it a more comfortable carry. Copperhead knives typically feature two blades, a clip point and a pen blade, although some variations exist.
