Benchmade 87 Balisong

You may or may not be aware that knife manufacturer Benchmade actually started off in the 1970s as Bali-Song USA. The name was a reference to the fact that, when they began, they made only butterfly knives. While their catalog has significantly evolved since then, they still like to stay true to their roots – as is evident with their upcoming release, the 87 Balisong.

While some folks think that butterfly knives are merely a novelty, Benchmade has taken this one extremely seriously. The angular wharncliffe blade is made from high-end CPM-S30V steel and is then attached to a billet titanium trademarked Bali-Song handle that allows for a buttery-smooth flipping action. And the overall quality of the materials is only compounded by the fact that this butterfly knife was made entirely right here in the USA. That kind of quality comes with a price tag to match, however, as this 10″ fan knife will sell for $600 a piece once it’s released.

Purchase: $600
