Dark Damascus Butterfly Knife
The city of Damascus now sits within the borders of Syria, but it has been around for a long time. The name is associated with this special metal because the people of this city were making, using, and writing about it. So the wavy patterns that occur on the durable steel from the ingredients used are globally tied to the city's name. And this laser etched butterfly knife version is a balisong that would impress the ancients who invented it! While made of 440 stainless steel, the blade boasts the same wavy dark and light gray swirls that are indicative of Damascus steel. The pattern of waves is said to look like water resting along the metal, so the stainless steel of this folding knife will do just fine at being your new pocketknife showpiece!
The design of these modern balisongs are new, but the folding handles come from a long history of conflict and warfare. Butterfly knives were carried by farmers and rural populations due to their lightweight and concealed blades. An everyday carry weapon needs to be safe until a moment of need, so the knives that fold into their handles became very popular because they were practical and light. With a quick flick of the wrist, the sharpened curved edge of this pocket batangas knife will flip out and allow the handles to lock together with the swinging spring latch, so you can secure your grip to maneuver the blade. These folding knives are still used today for self-defense, and have more common uses such as opening letters or packages with a simple slice from the sharp blade edge. With the comfortable curved handles and balanced weight, the temptation to spin tricks and make the winged handles fly around will be strong!
Inspired by CS:GO, these folding pocketknives have the distinctive slight curve shape with vented holes and silver gray inlays for grip control. It is the real life version of a factory new night blade that has the benefit of being an actual knife that you can use in a variety of situations. At full length, this dark hand knife reaches 9.5 inches, and when the blade is latched away into the handles, it measures 6 inches, so it is compact enough to fit into most jean or backpack pockets. At 7 ounces, you probably won't strain many muscles once you start flipping this fan knife around to learn, and master, your flipping tricks. The sharp edge of this original looking blade is 4 inches, so you'll have ample slicing capabilities when you need. Folded up, this concealed weapon is in ultimate stealth mode, and unfolded, it can counter any strike!
These folding butterfly knives with their Damascus print sharpened blades and complementing curved handles cover the whole spectrum of needs for a protective EDC weapon. Or leave it home by your computer to practice your flipping tricks while you crush opponents online. Either way, take home this unique 'watered steel' balisong today!
