The hinge width is the total width of the open hinge: measured at right angles to the pin.

The knuckle length is the length from one end to the other end of a single knuckle, parallel to the pin. Usually this is a fixed size, e.g. 30mm, 25mm, 20mm, etc.

The end play is the light axial movement between the knots over the axis of the pen. This is caused by the small space between the nodes, which causes the leaf to hinge.
