Kershaw is known for its fast and smooth operating folders, but for the first time ever, they have taken all they know about knives and applied that knowledge to a balisong. Introducing the Lucha! It features stainless steel handles with internal stop pins and a latch lock, and a Sandvik 14C28N blade. The pivots run on KVT ball bearings for lightning fast flipping and buttery smooth movement.
