Limited edition Blade HQ exclusive 51 balisong from Benchmade! This butterfly knife features vibrant green G-10 scales based on the classic and treasured Model 42, a stonewash finished blade, and blue anodized titanium liners & clip!

This blade is class from tip to tail. The D2 tool steel blade has a stonewash finish and a modified spear-point shape. The handles are skeletonized, made of a vibrant green G-10 with jeweled titanium liners, and feature a patented spring-latch locking mechanism. The handle also has finger contours for better grip, and a 6AL4V titanium tip-up pocket clip for easy carry. Despite an overall length of 9.25 inches, this beautifully crafted knife weighs just over 3 ounces, so it's easy to carry and effortless to use.

Great EDC bali. Loving the BHQ green.
Green with love

I've had a Morpho 32 for some time, but this is my first 51. I have to say that this knife does not disappoint. Function is flawless and movement is buttery smooth. The stonewashed blade adds another element to the aesthetics and combined with the green handles modeled after the 42/62, it's a winning combination.
Worth every penny

I am new to the balisong movement. I have been looking to buy one for a long time but couldn't pull the trigger until I saw this one. Let me say I was not disappointed in the least. The knife functions flawlessly, and may look better than it functions. The pocket clip is in a good spot and unbelievably makes very nice for everyday carry. I normally carry a leatherman cx133 which has screwdrivers on it, and this has a smaller footprint but is a bit longer. Overall very impressed and extremely happy with this knife.

I absolutely love that these scales have the 42 /62 hole pattern in them. If Benchmade made a Model 51 with titanium scales in this hole pattern I would be getting out my credit card. I miss my 42.

I do have a standard black handle 51 and love it. The lighter G-10 handles mean it is slightly lacking as a flipper, but I challenge you to find a 9 1/4" knife (total length) that carries as easily in your pocket as the Model 51. They advertise it as an every day carry knife, and it serves that purpose well if you are lucky enough to be someplace where such knives are legal to carry.
