Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material
The classiest butterfly under $100.
The bolsters on the knife I received are most definitely NOT nickel silver (chromed here), but at least the hardware is torx and not riveted as pictured, allowing one to clean out all the crappy oil, relube, and properly loctite everything at the exact right spot. Those looking to start playing with butterfly knives, this is the perfect starter! It's no BRS, but it's definitely not priced like a BRS. Plus, it's got a really wonderful touch of style with the (real) cocobolo scales. Don't bother with the $30 crapfest at the bottom of the barrel if you can scrape together a bit more and get this one instead. Be forewarned, though, you will need a T8 and T10 torx bit (T5, I'm betting, for the scales) and some blue loctite... Within the first hour, you will probably drop a screw if you don't rebuild it straight out of the box... P.s. This guy is SHARP. Get a box of bandaids while you're at the hardware store getting the torx and loctite. ;)
