The Tachyon III Balisong from Microtech Knives is a sensational modern take on the classic design. Too many great features on this Black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated edition to list. Features a hard anodized black aluminum frame with bronze hardware and black blade. Plus the user gets the ever-popular spring latch handle lock and ceramic bearings pivot system. What's not to love?

Brand new item direct from Microtech Knives. 

The Blade: A long clip style plain edge for the Tachyon III with false upper swedge grind right near the tip. The cutting edge is right at 4.25 inches and sports a super tough black DLC finish. It rides on a bearings pivot system for the smoothest of flipping and reduction of handle play.

The Handle: Lightweight, durable 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum crafted via integral channel construction with machined grooves on each side. Full black hard anodized finish with bronzed hardware continuing the theme on the bali. Its bronze spring latch means opening is as easy as squeezing the handles together. Each comes with a small bronze pocket clip branded and serialized. Includes pivot hardware adjustment tool.
