Chuck Gedraitis Custom Balisong #188 Butterfly Knife 4" Nichols Blackout Damascus Clip Point Blade, Purple Anodized Titanium Handles
CGKBALI188: Custom Damascus Balisong #188, Purple
Chuck Gedraitis Custom Knives
A Balisong is one of the rarer knives Chuck Gedraitis makes, this being only the 188th that he's ever made. But that does not mean by any means that it isn't supremely perfect in every regard in terms of balance, smoothness, fit and finish. It's a great knife for any trick you're willing to attempt and it comes razor sharp from Chuck. The bronze washers in the pivot allow for smooth flipping while reinforcing the pivot and ensuring there is no side to side play. This knife is outfitted with bold purple anodized titanium handles with stainless steel standoffs and a Chad Nichols Blackout Damascus clip point blade with a superbly acid etched finish. It would make a great addition to any butterfly collection though it's designed and manufactured to be a daily carry companion.
