ZBABALIPROEDC: Pro EDC Balisong Butterfly Knife
Michael Zieba Custom Knives

This Pro EDC Michael Zieba Balisong is a plain jane variant of his custom model built with a price point in mind. It's still done in Mike's shop but everything is done in large quantities without any additional engravings or backspacer bling to get this knife into more hands. He wanted to create a knife that could compete with the production balisongs in terms of function and cost and it's amazing what he's accomplished here. The knife features his trademark harpoon drop point spine profile with a tanto cutting edge so that it will fit into the slender frame. The Damascus pattern on the flats is laser etched for a little bit of extra cool factor. The titanium handles are simply bead blasted with copper anodized machined titanium spacers. 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 an amazing value for being made in Mike's own shop and we're proud to present it to you.

Great for EDC
This is a great Bali for EDC. Its thin so it can fit in your pocket and small enough to almost be the size of a folder. I wanted a bali that i could use in everyday situations. One thats not super big and heavy. No, this isn't made for flipping but i think the intent for this bali is for use and not flipping which is what i wanted. I have a bali for flipping and its more than 10 in. long, I dont want to pull a knife out that long in public to cut something or use it for work use, thats why i wanted to try this one out. I use a Sebenza 31 for heavy use and this knife is just about the same length so its perfect for EDC. I read that one of the comments said that the latch might put to much stress on the zen pin but i dont think that because the zen pens are a lot thicker and bigger than my other balis so i think it will hold up just fine. Plus its M390 which is perfect for work use too. I like the divot that is has on the top of the blade so you can choke up on it with your thumb. When the blade is open and closed the handles are really close which almost makes it feel like a fixed blade. Overall i highly recommend buying this knife for a edc knife.

Not a flippers balisong
too small and light to be a good flipper. Needs longer and thicker handles. Excellent materials and craftsmanship though.

Cons: Weight, Handle Feel
nice knife with butterfly handle
A high-quality well-made knife, but soso balisong. Action is solid and pivots/ceramic bearings are very smooth. Movements feel accurate. Swing weight is blade heavy. Handles are nicely edged, but corners have some sharpness. Built materials and quality are comparable to $400+ other balisong brands. Excellent blade, except the laser etching. Although nicely done, laser etching cheapens the overall appeal for this knife in my opinion. Latch pin feels solid, but has sharp edges. Locking pressure is good. Note: When closed, blade edge is very close to the outer edge (sharp blade will cut you if you grab too tight).
