This dibuyod (bowie) is a very unique piece. At precisely 24.1 cm, it is a classic 9.5″ balisong, but it is far from classic in terms of material and features. Let me explain.

The handles are Makassar ebony and preban Indian sambar stag. For an additional $39, I can take the wood all the way to 1000 grit to improve its appearance and the fit and finish of the wood to the stag, housing and bolsters. Doing so also removes much of the buffing compound that was trapped in the wood during finishing, and I then oil and wax the wood to seal it. This is a very painstaking process as each of the four pieces of wood has to be treated individually, and with great care to protect the bolsters, stainless housings and sambar stag.

The blade features two tang pins; the second tang pin prevents the blade from rattling when closed.

The wood has excellent figuring, which could be further brought out by hand finishing. The sambar stag provides nice texture for grip and contrast.

The earliest balisongs were all bowies; this is a very modern bowie grind, however. Batangas balisongs have come a long way in the last century!

Each of the eight stainless bolsters was pinned twice for durability.

This is a beautiful bente nueve that is a tasteful fusion of both the modern and the classic. 5 oz. $189
