The Kimura has been discontinued, but we just received a very limited supply of this venerable balisong knife. These blackwashed versions are the last of them, so get yours now before they're gone forever!

The Bradley Kimura is a USA made butterfly knife with a great price tag and stellar action! The Bradley Kimura XI features a blackwash stainless steel tanto blade and skeletonized 410 stainless steel handles with the blackwash finish. You won't find a better balisong in this price range!

Please Note: The Kimura series is discontinued and there is no warranty offered on these, they are sold as-is. These are new in box, but are without warranty.

Great item for the price
Christian F.
If you are looking for a great balisong (Sharp, well-constructed, etc.) for a good price this is it. I recommend this knife if you're willing to spend over the $100 range. However, the Bear and Son cocobolo butterfly knife for around $60 is almost as good as this knife (even though it takes time to loosen up).

Only problems are that this knife has no warranty and that the blade slightly rubs against the handles when closed.

Bottom line: If you're butterfly knife shopping in this price range you will not be disappointed.
So Happy I got one

So happy I got one before they are gone. People are saying the handles are to thin, but it is not bothering me. Might be just a touch light, but I still love it! Wish I could find others in the Kimura line.
Absolutely love it

This knife is gorgeous. Smooth as butter too. The quality is what you'd expect from a Bradley. Very high quality for a good price. Maybe a little more than other Kimuras but if you want one of the last ones from the box don't hesitate. I will say this though. The handles are thin. Not extremely thin but still thin. Some tricks will be harder but it's still a great flipper. I would highly recomend getting this knife. It's going to last a lifetime
great flipper, comes sharp, not my preference of blade

I really wish they made it another spear point but it is great. The only abnormal thing about this knife is the thinness of the handle but I like it. It is extremely smooth and will last you a long time.
Very sharp, well constructed, not a great flipper.

This knife is super sharp and appears to be well constructed. The handles pivot smoothly and the balance is okay. The knife is slim and carries in the pocket well. The latch is also removable and reversible.

The handles leave a lot to be desired. The design is plain and there is literally no texture. The bigger problem is that they are super thin and lightweight. It almost seems like the handles are unfinished. Not a great flipper.

I'd say it's worth the money if you are looking for an EDC balisong or if you want one of the last Kimuras. If you are looking for a good flipping balisong, I would look elsewhere.
