Couple I need info on

Post by Simpson Man » Sat May 09, 2020 4:15 pm

Hi all I have been a member for years but don’t really post much. That being said I’ve always liked the look of Balisong/butterfly knives but don’t know much about them. Cost of course is an issue as with all my knife buys, being retired. I got one the other day and was hoping for some help on history and value if that’s permitted. I also have a buddy that has some and he is not knowledgeable on them either. The pics of the red handled one is the one I just got and the Benchmade is my buddies. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Mike

Yours looks to be Filipino in origin maybe $50-60.00 range. The Benchmade is well over a $100.00 last time I looked.
They can hurt you pretty good if you make a mistake while flipping them.

That anodized benchmade 42 is actually going for closer to around $600-$700 these days and it's a plus if he's got the original box and the knife hasn't been altered. Very collectible knife he has there!
