BM63: 63 Bowie Balisong, Stainless Steel Handles with T-Latch
Introducing the Benchmade Model 63 - the Bowie version of the 62 Balisong. Similar to the discontinued model 43, this clip point brother is the same overall knife as the 62 and 67 with a more classic blade shape. This Bowie measures in at 4-1/4" and made from D2 steel, it's one devastating cutter. Every other specification of the knife is the same regarding materials, function, and weight so if a Weehawk or Recurve Tanto blade isn't for you or if you want something more classic looking, you can't go wrong with a Model 63.

About the Model 62

The best is born of history and tradition or as is the case with the Benchmade 62 Balisong, reborn. For us, the best began with the Balisong, the butterfly knife awesome in its simplicity, the ultimate example of form following function. And now we retrace those steps with the Model 62 with its numerous appreciable improvements. For starters, the Wee-hawk style blade is secured to the handles with screw-head pivot-pins, making the possibility of changing out blades a reality, and the pins are heat-treated and larger than previous ones. The handle latch uses a torx-head pivot-pin attachment as well, so it may be removed if preferred. Another nice feature is the skeletonized cast stainless steel handles which are very tough and weighted for better balance. The handles feature a T-latch lock with more pronounced contour for improved grip. As for the blade itself, we've extended the false edge farther back up the blade as was done on the traditional Wee-hawk designs. So if you're already a Balisong fan from way back, you'll definitely be pleased with the Model 62. Or if you're just looking for the ultimate in basic form and simple function-this is it.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Handle Material, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, Sheath, Blade Material
Decent knife.. but not the best..
i use this kinfe everyday for work/camping,ect. things that are great about it are.. it comes with a razor sharp edge. i actually managed to cut a chunk of my thumb off of without realizing it untill i put pressure on it and looked down and saw it in my lap. the things i wish i knew about it before hand, that D2 isnt as high quality steel as carbon V steel. i dont care if you have to oil it or not.. this D2 steel is obviously better then 440 stainless.. but i havent been impressed with it. as for the knife quality itself, it glides through your hand... but i wish someone told me to keep it in the carring case (which is a hastle) because pocket change can get through the handle in your pocket and completely dull the f**k out of the blade. a nickle will get its way and stick inside the handle just enough to get stuck and rub in your pocket all day. not impressed with this knife at all. cold steels arc-angel is way better.

Good Intermediate Flipper Knife
I've had this knife for a month now and can't believe how much more it has improved my flipping, its got good weight to it, might be heavy at first but you get used it and how to manipulate it. Would not suggest for a newcomer to bali's, better off getting a bear ops or Bradley to get into flipping. Also I was very sceptic on the blade material and having it in D-2 Tool Steel, I knew it makes a sweet edge, just thought at this price they could have went the way of the CPM stainless steels for even better edc, but I changed my mind when I got this knife and you literally can shave with it, its that sharp.

Cons: None
This is is the first balisong that I ever owned of this quality. I became uninterested in balisongs cuz the balisongs I came across in the past were of such poor quality. I didn't think they could really be improved upon. I said the hell wit it and dropped the coin and was not disappointed. Everything feels right on this knife all the way down to the weight and it looks good. Carry it horizontal in the sheath or in your pocket it's benchmade quality. Buy this knife and buy it from knifecenter
