I hate to admit it but what is the definition of a jack knife? It appears that most are two blades from one end of the knife, However, I see some that have one blade? Is toothpick a jack knife?, the single blade farmers trapper a jack knife?, the Sway back jack is only one blade and called a jack knife. Is there anything tangible that I can register in this feeble old mind that can put this question to rest.
It seems unclear to me

A jack knife can also have two blades opening from either end, like a large pen knife, such as a muskrat or moose. I guess it has to do with just being too big to be called a pen knife.
