KS5150: 5150 Lucha Butterfly Knife

Kershaw Knives

Do you flip? Do you want to flip? Then the Kershaw Lucha is for you. This is a high-quality butterfly knife that’s made in the USA. Next level materials include a 14C28N stainless steel blade and an all-steel handle. Next-level performance comes from Kershaw’s meticulous design. For instance, the blade tapers so that the top has more weight to pendulum around smoothly. The Lucha features dual KVT ball-bearing pivots for extra-easy operation. The handle has a rounded bevel so it rolls effortlessly in the hand. Even the latch is rounded so it never catches as you flip. The latch also features a positive stop so it never contacts the blade. The full-sized Lucha was designed with feedback from real flippers. This light, fast butterfly knife will jump, fly, and spin in your hands.

Features
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Made In The USA - When you see this on one of Kershaw's knives, it means the knife was made in their Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.

Cons: None
Flippin love it.
Yes, it is on the heavier side. it is solid and rattle free. A bit of lube on the bearing pivots and the lock, and you're in ninja mode. Sharp blade too. Few gripes. One of the handle was not as swingy as the other. but its getting better as it breaks in. The spine of the blade (where your finger hits) is pretty narrow, meaning it will hurt more. They cut a 45 degree angle on both shoulders thinking it will soften the edges but it has lessen the contact surface on your forefinger where it digs in deeper down to your bones. Yes, it hurts. They should've just slightly round off the shoulders, not cut 45 degree bevel. It is long and dense. Not crazy heavy. But it disappears in your pocket! The rounded edges and slimmer profile is really comfortable, even in sweat pant pocket!

Feels like a 2-300 dollar knife
Ive never used a 300 dollar balisong but i imagine its like this. The bearings are awsome, sturdy as hell. The craftsmanship and materials and everything are what i was looking for in something i want to keep with me for a few years Ive dropped the hell out of it, and other than dulling up a little, as it should, and the the latch eventually coming off on its own, it seems like its gonna hold up for a long time. The only two parts of the whole experience that werent perfectly seamless was the latch and this pinch point at the back. The latch is removable, i never took it off but it eventually started coming off on its own, i think the back end flexed open slightly and made it easier to snap in or out. And the pinch point. Its a small thing but its been the worst part of the knife for me so ill bring it up. The back part of the blade behind where it hinges has little notches in it. Presumably so i can grab it with my finger and flick it. But theyre just the right size that if my finger is pressed up against the back of the blade as the handles swings together, and if i dont stop the other handle before it gets within about 45 degrees of closed, it pinches the fu** out of me. Its not a deal killer or anything, ive learned to choke up on it and control the handle im not holding, so it cant swing that far around, which might be the more techincal way to flip anyway. I can totally get with learning stuff like that to keep from getting hurt while flipping too, thats what makes it fun; the real issue is that ive never used the notch for anything else, and I cant imagine ever missing it if it wasnt there.Thats my only serious complaint though and its very minor, overall im extremely satisfied. its been in my EDC for months and i like having it more and more as time passes. I cant speak for other knives but this one is a very very solid choice in the ~100 dollar price range

Good full size balisong
great balisong. The bearings are super smooth. I like the size and weight especially since i have bigger hands. The bladesteel is one that requires a bit more upkeep for edc. (Touching up the edge, oil). Also its dope that the screws (especially pivots) came with locktite already. Less work i had to do. Love the look, the 2 improvements i think would be great to see are 1. Seeing a tanto version of this in maybe a 154cm. And 2 allowing flytanium to have a similar after market handle desighn similar to the steel ones on here. The ones that are cureently available mimic the benchmade desighn and it just doesnf fit the knife. It would be great to see evwn maybe a kershaw/flytainium collab to desighn some more asthetically fitting after market handles. That being said the as is steel handles are great.
