This butterfly knife measures in at 8 7/8″, a little shorter than the most popular balisong among flippers today. The handles are sandwich construction and screwed together, but the screws are fixed and have had their heads ground off. No worries about the screws backing out on these: a very nice touch. This does mean you can’t adjust the tension after heavy use, but they have proven to be very durable and have been extensively tested by my buyers.

Check out one of the balisongs in action below! The owner flipped his balisong extensively for a year, and his use (abuse) included repeated drops while practicing aerials.

The handles are beautifully laser engraved. The laser engraving is permanent and will not flake or chip unless you gouge the steel. It also provides some nice texture. One of my buyers, who is a serious flipper, feels these solid handles, coupled with the laser engraving, are about as good as it gets for flipping.

The blade and the handles are 420 stainless steel. This is one of the newest models from this outfit and it features a hollowground recurve blade. While not quite razor sharp, it is close. The blade features two extra thick tang pins and locks up rock solid in both the open and closed positions, and there is an integral guard on it too.

The spring latch on these has been proven to work and hold up quite well, although the spring isn’t as strong as on the $300+ balis out there. Then again, they don’t have bearings!

This is a great little balisong for the flippers, or for anyone who wants a lightweight EDC. 420 steel isn’t anywhere near as hard or tough as the high carbon steel used on Filipino balisongs, but for someone who just wants a good, reliable flipper and occasional cutting tool, these are perfect. 4.7 oz. $79.
