Dating back more than a century, balisongs — also known as butterfly knives — are one of the most fascinating types of folding knives. And that’s not just because of their unique architecture, but also because, over time, people have developed a wide variety of different types of flipping tricks that are both rife with danger and absolutely mesmerizing. And it was with flipping in mind that Kershaw built their Lucha butterfly knife.
Crafted from a 14C28N stainless steel that has increased amounts of nitrogen to help reduce corrosion resistance, the Lucha was built to last. It’s also equipped with a buttery-smooth KVT ball-bearing pivot sure to keep it flipping for years to come. Even the handle was designed with a rounded bevel to make it ideal for performing flip tricks. In fact, the design was actually created with input from real flipping professionals. Best of all, the Lucha was made entirely in the USA. Get one for yourself now for $190.
