Looks like the stem does. Yes, it uses a lock jaw

https://bikerumor.com/double-take-th...lockjaw-hinge/

The Clinch D10’s high performance setup and slick folding system brings the MSRP to $4999.00.(2015)

Ouch!!!

Folds @ red line;




Lockjaw as used on several other Dahon models, introduced in 2007



Handy to carry a 'Dr. Hon Tool' stuffed in the end of your handlebar to operate the hinges

It is a very neat design, but I guess that it is too expensive to for most people.
I've owned several Dahons while commuting over the years, but this one not within the budget for daily use.

I'm seeing a street price for a new aluminum frame Dahon Clinch D10 in Japan of 187100, which converts to ~$1630USD (2021).
