The switchblade is a weapon used in rumbles (or large "gang fights" between the Socs and the Greasers) in The Outsiders. It consists of a sharp metal blade and a switch handle that makes it open. Johnny used a switchblade knife to kill Bob by stabbing him because the Socs were going to drown Ponyboy and beat up Johnny the night the two went to see a drive-in with Dally, Two-Bit, Cherry, and Marcia. Two-Bit gives his switchblade, which he was famous for shoplifting, to Dally when he is in the hospital.
