Microtech Special Batman Tachyon III Balisong Butterfly Knife 4.5" Black DLC ELMAX Bowie Blade and Aluminum Handles with Yellow Accents - 173-1BM
MT1731BM: 173-1BM Tachyon III Balisong, Black Standard
Released in 2012, the Tachyon II was modeled after Microtech's original balisong butterfly knife, the Tachyon from 2000. Re-engineered to perfection in 2015, the Tachyon III reflects the ideal evolution of Microtech's balisong line. The updated Tachyon III is a gorgeous, full-size butterfly knife with an extremely solid build and a totally refined look.
The aluminum handles are machined from a solid billet with a black DLC finish and yellow accents, dubbing this model the Batman. A redesigned silicon nitride race bearing system creates a flawless flipping mechanism. There is also no flex in the handles which shows that not only is this bearing system smooth, it's very solidly designed as well as manufactured. The recurved 4.5" ELMAX stainless steel blade has a black DLC finish accented by the yellow of the traditional Marfione fuller. The overall length of the knife has been significantly lengthened, generating an improved balance compared to its predecessor and this model includes a yellow spring pocket clip emblazoned with a BM.
