The Small Boker Plus G-10 Balisong is a smooth-gliding flipper. It has a spring-loaded latch that, with a firm squeeze, will pop open to allow quick, one-handed blade deployment. The handles are made from G-10 with stainless steel liners that look and feel fantastic. This is the small version.

Even After It Cuts You ?Sharp Otb, Roller bearings Do The Work, Gravity Carries The Blade Really Nice. Idk Bout “Tactical” Though Latch Gave Out After First Drop
Love the little guy, a MUST have.
Purchased this for my stepdaughter as a graduation present. Very well made. Some work is required to access the pivots, not too bad overall. Bearings instead of washers provide smooth movement. A touch of KPL and some fine tuning, and this little blade sings. Enjoy!
An excellent little knife: solidly built, feels good in the hand, flips well and the latch stays out of the way when doing so, and the cool looking 'poon blade is a good slicer. I bought this knife with the intention of carrying and using it rather than working on my extremely limited repertoire of bali tricks, but its small size and light weight make it easy to handle, so maybe I'll be able to use it to learn a few new tricks. I'm so pleased with this knife that I plan to buy the other Boker mini balisong model, however, I would give one word of caution and about it. Within 30 min out of the box the pivot screws had loosened to the point they needed tightening, which requires the removal of the G10 scales. This was easy enough for me--no loctite from the factory on any of the hardware, thankfully--as I own a torx bit set. All the hardware on the knife are size T6 screws, so that's really the only one you'll need to work on it, but if you don't have a T6 bit you'll have no way to adjust the pivot screws, and that will almost certainly need to be done at least once so you can retighten them with either purple or blue loctite, as I did. No issues with them since, but again, that torx bit was absolutely necessary. Personally, I think anyone who owns a few decent knives ought to have a good torx bit set, so if you don't, maybe invest first in one of those and then pick up a Boker mini bali.
I ordered this knife not expecting much but I was incredibly happy with it. It came a bit stiff but some lubricant can fix that. It came razor sharp and just a great small knife
Really awesome budget balisong. The action is very smooth and the design and feel is excellent. My only two complaints are that it didn't come very sharp out of the box, but not a big deal, I can just sharpen it. Also, the pivot screws loosened a bit after opening and closing it, but nothing a little Loctite won't fix.
I really like this knife and it's smaller size, weight and balance. It has a really nice, quality blade. BUT I was going to return it until I read JAIDON J.'s review. Out of the box the knife needed to be tightened up. I bought a Torx T-6 and tightened everything up. I'm really glad I kept it now, it's so smooth on the turns and snaps. It would be 5 stars if I didn't have to tighten up all the hardware on a brand new knife. I am so glad that worked and I kept it. This knife is slick, for this price.
Very good looking knife, rides nicely on the ball bearings and the lock is nice but can be finicky at times. came sharper than any knife i’ve ever bought. the only issue i have with it is that the handles like to loosen up after a little while of using it, and getting into the screens under the scales can take a bit (takes a t-6 torx bit). i put some loctite on it and it still likes to back the screw out a tiny bit and it loosens up the handles it gets annoying. regardless it’s a very nice knife especially for the price point. 4/5 stars
I'm a newbie and I bought this as my first Balisong and just started flipping, so I have zero experience. There are several things I really don't like about this knife. First, the harpoon peak on the back of the blade is very pointy on my knife and it hurts the back of my hand when I flip it, seems like they should have ground it down a bit so it's not so sharp. And the pocket clip sucks, it fell out of my pocket once, I won't trust that clip again. And the spring-loaded clasp that holds it together, seemed like it worked OK when I bought the knife, but after about three hours of flipping it won't hold the knife together anymore, it just pops off. And the blade came sharper than a razor blade from the factory, it's the sharpest knife I've ever owned. I ended up putting duct tape on the blade and holding it together with a rubber band to keep it safe and closed in my pocket LOL. The only thing I really like is that the blade is just under 3.5 inches, the max concealed carry length here in Colorado. I've had it for a few days, I already ordered a different Balisong. I'll keep this one though because of the blade length, the other knife I ordered has a blade that is too long for EDC away from my house.
Was excited about Boker making balisongs. But when this knife came in the pivots fell apart if it wasn't for them being behind the hand scales it would have been in pieces first impressions were definitely terrible. Shouldn't have to work on a new knife at this price range.
