Customer Reviews

Great knife
Calvin E. on Jul 1, 2022

Great grip, sharp right out the box, quite and smooth

RYAN M. on Jan 25, 2022

I got this balisong with my name engraved. It not only Arrived speedily but came sharp and of good quality. It was exactly as pictured and is a good balisong.

Great knife so far!
KALEB Y. on Dec 29, 2020

I bought this knife about a month ago and it's holding up great so far. It's a bit different from the cheap CSGO knife that had lol, but it's been absolutely fantastic otherwise. I'm starting to notice a bit more handle play, but apparently to fix that problem is to apply some Loctite to the screws. Other than that, I would definitely buy this knife again!

Best bear and son knife so far
Jon G. on Jul 5, 2020

When i saw the knife listed and saw the specs and the pictures i instantly knew that i wanted that as my next butterfly knife and it was perfect timing since i was in the market for a new one. ive had 2 previous bear and son butterfly knives, both were good and had there ups and downs which i got used to. but this knife is different. it looks, feels and handles smoothly and instantly had zero buyers remorse. i highly recommend this knife if youre looking for something that wont break the bank but at the same time something that wont break after a week. The look/aesthetics alone are a deal breaker.

Best Experience
Nicholas V. on Jul 1, 2019

Look. I was skeptical since this is a mid price knife. It is not built cheap. This knife holds together nicely, and with maintenance and thread lock looks like it will hold together for a long time.

Jose A. on Feb 13, 2019

Smooth, nice, well made, probably not the best flipper, but is good enough for the price. Don't forget to add thread lock to the screws

Decent Butterfly
John C. on Aug 2, 2019

I've owned a few cheap pawn-shop butterflies and this is a clear step up. This is where you want to be if you're learning but not sure you want to commit to some of those nutty $200+ models. It swings freely but feels sturdy. This one is on the heavy side and it would have been nice if it had a pocket clip. Buy a trainer!

Just Ok
graham l. on Nov 16, 2022

honestly underwhelming for the price point, even though it is cheap. screws come loose extremely fast. i would reccommend staying away from bear and sons knives.

Time Will Tell (ADD LOCTITE)
JASON H. on Apr 24, 2019

Bought this for my partner's 15-year-old son who has been practicing tricks on a cheap trainer balisong for a couple of months. He's become proficient at it so I decided to go with this model for his first live blade balisong: not too expensive, not too cheap and held together by screws instead of pins. I was more concerned with the build quality and durability than steel quality as, let's be honest, he won't be using it for much more than fun tricks. He loved it out of the box and said it was a "sexy" knife. It is. However, within the first ten minutes of him flipping, one handle completely fell apart and we spent ten minutes looking for all the screws and two pivot washers for that side. I went ahead and took apart the entire knife since it was halfway there anyway. For what it's worth, the materials aren't bad. Decent brass washers on the pivots and everything goes together nicely. But trust me when I say that every screw was loose from the pivots to the scales, every single one. Blue loctite was evident on the pivot screws from the factory, so I'm not sure why it fell apart so easily. I cleaned the old stuff off and re-added more blue loctite to every screw and have my fingers crossed it will hold together. We'll see with time. I can barely give this three stars at this point but will update this review with more stars if the knife proves its durability.
