What is a Butt Hinge?

By definition, a butt hinge is a hinge that attaches to the abutting surfaces of a door jamb and the door.  These hingesare usually mortised or recessed into both surfaces.  The following picture shows a carpenter chiseling a mortise:

Butt hinges consist of two rectangular leaves with screws to attach the hinge to the surfaces.  They are joined together by the hinge pin which is a metal rod.

Most hinge pins are removable, but some are built to be non-removable for security purposes. Butt hinges are available with both removable and non-removable pins.  There are a variety of Butt Hinges including the following:
