Hom Design Chimera Base Balisong Butterfly Knife 4.75" CPM-S35VN Stonewashed Blade, Titanium Handles with G10 Liners
HOMCHMB: Chimera Base Balisong
The Chimera Balisong is the latest creation from Hom Design. Packed full of cutting edge elements and premium features, the Chimera raises the bar in the production segment and is dual-purpose that is true to its name: the knife excels at both a cutting tool and a performance flipper. Unique to this model, the overlays are titanium and provide a solid exterior structural design for the hidden zen pins that pass through the composite liners. The blade not only uses premium CPM-S35VN stainless steel with a crowned spine across all models but has a pinch-free spade tang that is inspired by the legendary Balibalistic Knives. The innovation culminates at the titanium pin latch, which can retract manually into the handle without any tools, springs, or magnets — a first in the balisong world.

A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
This product is USA born and raised.
