This balisong is brand new direct from maker Craig Camerer.

Blade: Craig crafted this beautiful tanto point using tough W2 tool steel. It's known for its ability to create a beautiful hamon when properly heat treated and Craig has done it right. This blade is compound ground with a hollow ground edge and flat ground tip and upper swedge. Floating along on a set of ball bearing pivots the blade cycles smooth for flawless operation.

Handle: Full length titanium liners support stunning carbon fiber scales with red carbon fiber inlays all attached with titanium Torx hardware. Each handle is completed with dual barrel spacers for a fully open construction making for easy cleaning and maintenance. The handle is substantial yet lightweight with a heft that you don't often find in production balisongs. A titanium latch, also on bearings, is easy to operate and stays out of the way while cycling.

Includes padded, ACE Case zippered pouch for transportation and storage.

Maximum working hardness is in 63-65 HrC, W2 has good edge holding and cutting performance with a thin edge and moderate toughness depending on the heat treatment. High carbon, low chromium gives no added corrosion resistance. Maintain accordingly.
