Benchmade still produces a small selection of Balisong knives, the knives that launched the company. The Benchmade Model 42 Balisong is an iconic staple in the Balisong community and the newer Benchmade Morpho is making its mark as well.
It should be no surprise to anyone that these traditional butterfly-style knives are subject to the same constant innovation and improvements as the rest of their line. Benchmade Balisongs feature spring latch technology to prevent the latch from interfering with the blade and are made from the finest materials available. One of their most innovative Balis is the Benchmade 87 which features integral, billet titanium constructed handles, thrust bearing washers and magnetic latch closure.
Benchmade typically delivers standard production models along with a few limited production run models each year.
