This balisong measures in at 23 cm. It features the handle skeletonizing many flippers drool over. These knives are sandwich construction, and the heads of the screws are locked tight and ground flat, so there are no worries about screws backing out. These knives also have bearings in the pivots, that pretty much alleviate all blade play, and they also have a unique spring latch design that works quite well.

The classic smooth handles and skeletonizing are very attractive and provide for just the right amount of texture for flipping. The screw heads are less visible on the handles since both the handles and the screw heads have been ground level and buffed.

The blade (like the handles) is 420 stainless steel. While the blade is not hardened for maximum cutting performance, it sharpens up easily and can take a good edge. It also takes a good polish and is highly corrosion resistant: perfect for the flippers. Of course, 420 steel can’t compare to the high carbon steel used on Filipino knives as far as toughness goes, but these knives are made for completely different uses.

The blade has a guard and very thick tang pins. The blade is hollowground with a thicker, rounded tip.

The bearings in the pivots are a feature commonly only seen on high grade custom balisongs that cost $500 or more: they really work very well.

You can see the spring latch assembly here. I ensure the craftsmen check out each and every spring latch before shipment. In the early days, there were some issues, but every latch in this batch pops up well.

This style weighs in at only 4 oz. I have six in stock at this time. $69.
