Georgious piece with a bite as mean as its bark.
I ordered this because I was looking for a low cost piece with great performance, and after seeing the 5 star reviews, I had to get this knife. The first thing I noticed about this butterfly was the weight. It is a hefty piece that makes you learn to control the knife. Next, the blade. This knife nicked the heck out of my fingers, but that isn't a complaint. This definitely isn't a beginner's blade, simply because even the lightest touches will cause little cuts along your fingers. I'm a beginner and didn't realize what I was getting with this knife. The blade is razor sharp, USA made, and all 4 inches of this blade speak for themselves when it comes to flare. The handles: The handles are easy to hold onto, a bit girthy, but for the most part, they are a breeze. Their weight honestly helps with little tricks, due to the momentum they naturally build while in flight. WARNING: GRABBING THE BITE HANDLE BY ACCIDENT DURING A TRICK WILL CAUSE SOME, IF NOT QUITE A BIT OF BLEEDING FROM AT LEAST ONE FINGER!!!!! My only complaint with this knife is the lock. It has been about two weeks since it has arrived and the lock has become a little squeaky and loose, nothing too bad. All in all, this is a great investment for any Balisong admirers/collectors. It is incredibly quiet, the only noise it makes besides the squeaky lock on mine is the sound of the handles hitting each other upon opening and closing. A small click. That is it. It has a slick design that catches the eye, and the fun is endless. Have fun!
