ZBABALIKOI: Custom Balisong Butterfly Knife, Koi
Michael Zieba Custom Knives

The Michael Zieba Balisong is a custom butterfly knife available at a production price point. It features his trademark harpoon drop point spine profile with a tanto cutting edge so that it will fit into the slender frame. The titanium handles are outfitted with his Koi engraving pattern and skull spacers that no Zieba knife should be without. The bearing pivots lead to very very smooth flipping action and its proper balance allows you to perform any trick you're daring enough to try. This butterfly knife is a fantastic representation of Mike as both a designer and a knifemaker. It's precise, stylish, different from the rest, and is both new age and classic. It's funny how each and every design seems to hit this mark where many many others fail. Handmade in the USA.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Material, Overall Quality
Cons: Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, None
Great custom bali
5 for looks4 for flippability 3 for the pivots as they seem to be easy to stripOver all a 4 star bali. The balance is almost perfect I'd say just a tad blade heavy. And the ball bearings make this smooth as ice without overly bouncy being a zen pin designImprovements would include:1. chamfering on handles so pinches wont happen as much2. Better pivot torque screws that wont strip so easy3. Take some slight weight off blade.... maybe a blood grove would help the balance?4. Maybe sharpen the blade a bit better. But could be a pro since bites aren't as deep

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Nice balance but smaller than expected
This is an aesthetically beautiful balisong and it is flips nicely. Its is just on the small side in terms of overall size. Its smaller than a benchmade 51 morpho for example. Also the latch fitment is very tight. The bali sent to me was not very sharp out the box. Other than that it is most impressive.
