In the recent years I’ve not been very active in the world of knifemaking, I stopped for multiple reasons, mostly due to the lack of free time.
But lately I wanted to challenge myself with a new build, a type of knife that I never made before…
A balisong knife.
So after many weeks of work now I’m very happy to present you the latest knife I’ve designed and built:
Its name comes from the union of the words Balisong (that is the name of the common called butterfly knife) and Stone (coming from its stonewash finish.)
The two halves of the Bali-Stone handle are precisely carved from a monolithic block of 316L stainless steel, the retaining latch is also made from the same steel, famous for it’s ability to withstand corrosion.
Its blade is made of RWL34 an RSP (Rapid Solidified Powder) stainless steel hardened at 60HRC.
The whole knife comes in stonewashed finish, that gives it that cool distressed look and have the advantage of protecting the knife from small scratches.
You can see the full photos in the Folder Knives section.
Enjoy! And let me know in the comments what you think about this design!
