Large Böntgen und Sabin/ Bonsa balisong

Post by Selachii »

I saw this knife a while ago and never seen one like this before. It's sadly beat up quite a bit, but maybe its worth restoring. Sadly it's not legal where I live, but I could ship it to a friend for now or ship it to my second home in Brazil, better than getting it destroyed by someone not knowing its rarity.

Anyway I wanted to share it if someone has more information about this knife or maybe even wants to restore it since it will be quite a hustle for me to get it to a save place. ... x454858247

That's a high quality knife, and they are rare.
B&S (Bonsa) was a pioneer in one hand-opening knives.
I'm sure yours is quite old, as I have never seen the butterfly knives cataloged.
