This Japanese balisong was made in Seki City, the city famous for samurai sword making. This design is from 1984 and it still says 1984 on the ricasso. These are excellent old school balisongs that were modeled after the classic Batangas FHM balisong pens that were around in the late 70s and early 80s. The Filipino kind were much slimmer and looked like a single pen when closed. These obviously look like a pair of pens, but are much easier to handle and perhaps more durable than the original Batanguenyo kind.

The blade is 2.5” long from the top of the handles to the tip. It is ground from 1/8” 440 stainless that is perfectly heat treated and razor sharp. The blade is hollowground, which makes it a great slicer, and it also has a perfect tip. The old school Japanese balisongs were pinned loose and there is more play in them than a broken in FHM, which are pinned tighter so they stay relatively tight even after breaking in.

The handles appear to be brass or zinc alloy with chrome plating. The clips are stainless steel.

You can absolutely see the FHM heritage in the way the tang pin and pockets were made.

The inside of the handles also scream Batangas.

These are great collectibles and well worth adding to any collection of old school balisongs or sneaky blades. 3.8 oz. $89.
