Benchmade’s 85 Ti Is An Ultralight EDC Balisong Machined From Billet Titanium

Benchmade has been incredibly busy in Q2 of 2020, with the Oregon City outfit releasing noteworthy new and updated knives on what feels like a weekly basis. And despite unveiling a trio of knives over the last two weeks, Benchmade has now added to its already robust catalog once again with the ultra-premium 85 Billet Ti Bali-Song Knife.

Like the company’s existing 87 Bali-Song, the new 85 Ti model packs 0.46” thick integral single-piece handles CNC-machined from billet titanium. However, the 87 model’s 4.5″ Wharncliffe blade has been replaced with a slightly shorter 4.4” drop-point blade, though its CPM-S30V steel and 0.124” thickness go unchanged. Blending traditional balisong design with contemporary top-shelf materials, the American made EDC-focused butterfly knife is also guided by stainless steel ball bearings, allowing for incredibly smooth and consistent deployment. Despite boasting a length of 10” when opened (like the 87), the 85’s titanium and S30V construction mean it tips the scales at just 0.33lbs (or 5.29oz). Scheduled for a release in early July, the Benchmade 85 Billet Ti Bali-Song has been priced at $650.
