RHKK500BST10W00: Nieves Butterfly Knife, Spanto Grind, Working Finish
Rick Hinderer Knives
The Nieves balisong is an extremely impressive piece with excellent balance and enough real estate to make any trick under the sun possible. This is Rick's first butterfly knife, making it a collectible knife that is also a wonderful flipper. It rides on bronze washers for a distinct, light feel and that action will not change as the knife becomes gunked up with pocket lint. It will always perform the same and because it's a Hinderer, it's also built for hard use. The Nieves does not include a pocket clip but it is set up to be compatible with any Hinderer pocket clip currently available. If you want a butterfly knife that you can both flip and use as an EDC tool, you've just found it right here.

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
