BRSBBTV2: Barebones Tanto V2
Bladerunners Systems

The Barebones Tanto features an appealing blade grind and still retains its original sleek design taking similar form and dimensions as its predecessors (Alpha Beast and Replicant), but fuses its own unique attributes to make it a one of a kind knife. 

The all-stainless-steel framed handles are skeletonized to maintain optimum balance and reduce weight. You will find that the Barebones Tanto is a very neutral handling balisong. It can be flipped fast or slow and really can adapt to a variety of manipulation styles. Unlike other steel balisongs, the Barebones Tanto is not overburdened with excess weight and comes in at just over five ounces and remains nimble in hand. Coupled with extended handle dimensions the weight is very well distributed.

The Barebones Tanto V2 does not cut corners on blade steel. BRS retained a heat-treated 154CM stainless steel blade to provide a lifetime of flipping performance and reliability. The blade also features a crowned spine for additional comfort and handling. The hardware is all stainless steel, including the latch. 

Whether you are just starting out as a flipper and new to balisongs or a long-time veteran of the sport, you will find Barebones Tanto V2 to be an optimum performer. Like all BRS products, the Barebones is battle-ready out of the box and has performance at the forefront of design!
