HOMCHMB: Chimera Base Balisong
Hom Design

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.

Great buy
The HOM Chimera has to be the most underrated knife on the market. I was very impressed from the moment I opened up the box. Before its arrival I was a little concerned about the length (overall length), but now the length is definitely one of my favorite attributes. It one big & intimidating knife. It flips excellent as well, you just have to get used to something a little more handle bias, but I'm definitely happy.
