This balisong measures in at 9 3/16". It does not feature handle skeletonizing like the other knives from this small production facility, but it does feature a beautiful woven texture that I believe is CNC-machined into the handles. 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 bushings in the pivots, that pretty much alleviate all blade play, and they also have a unique spring latch design that works quite well.

The pattern looks almost organic (like a handwoven basket) and also provides excellent texture for manipulation.

The weehawk blade (like the handles) is 420 stainless steel and features nice, sharp serrations. 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 handles are beautifully polished. One of my buyers, who is a serious flipper, feels these solid handles feel better in the hand than the skeletonized models.

The bushings 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.
