Imperial Butterfly

Post by natcherly »

PRICE DROP!

You go to the Halloween party dressed as a Roman Emperor. In your hand you hold this interesting 17" baton. The eagle with outstretched wings is a symbol of your high status.

Someone makes fun of your toga, you then open the baton to reveal this monster bali!

Don't look at me! That thing is sharp and a miscue could result in loss of a limb, or other vital extremity.... :mrgreen:

That sucker's beautiful. And I'll be the first to admit I know absolutely nothing about balisongs nor Don Chua, however, I can recognize quality when I see it. I intend to go do some homework!

I'm curious, what does it weigh and what type of wood is used? And is there a tang stamp on the other side? Peace.

For anyone interested, I found a similar giant, appears to be the same maker to my untrained eye. These things are absolute monsters and have my full attention now! :D Peace.
