LVCBALI2DAM: Custom Damasteel Model 2 Balisong
Les Voorhies Custom Knives
Les Voorhies has been making custom handmade knives for over 20 years. During that time, he's picked up a few things and always strives to make his products as perfect as possible. His designs are different than most but you cannot help but find them appealing, especially once you handle them and feel the superb quality each is built with. Les is always evolving his manufacturing techniques to bring the best product he possibly can to you at this particular time.
The Model 2 is more refined and slightly longer than the Model 1 design from Les. It's roughly the same size and weight as a BRS Alpha Beast, which is one of the standards of the balisong world. It flips amazingly smoothly, riding on caged bearings, and it's extremely well balanced allowing for all types of tricks. We love the clean look of this design and its milled hole pattern in the titanium handle reduces the weight to a perfect 4.2 ounces. The knife includes a mirror polished then acid etched clip point blade made from Rose Damasteel, a free-swinging latch, and a pocket clip on the bite handle. If you're looking for the next step up in the balisong world, this handmade Model 2 from Les Voorhies is an excellent choice.
