Compact balisong on bearing

Postby cardoso5fr » Mon Feb 23, 2015 10:17 am

A small compact balisong. 115w8, 2.7 mm thick blade, chaotic hamon, 6.5 cm sharp, 17.6 cm long open for 10.5 cm closed. 9mm thick and 12mm thick to the pivot screw.
Handle, latch, tlatch and tang pin are Ta6V4 (Ti gr5). It's a friction latch, build as my friction folder. No mechanism, only friction. You can flip as fast as you want the latch wont move :D
That one is build on cc bearing (ball thrust bearing from couteaucustom in france.)

Impressive cutlery. I especially like the quite small blade with that shape. Looks like a good utility tool for general carry. :)

Thank you :)

I did a small low profil clip in titanium. Toxified (differently from the handle for the look) :D. It's on the bite handle and you can put the clip on each side :D
