The Kimura has been discontinued, but we just received a very limited supply of BLEMISHED models. To be honest, most of these have no visible blemishes and all of them function perfectly. The blade is marked "XXXX" denoting it is a blemished model. These DO NOT come with box/papers or any warranty. These are sold AS-IS, no returns.

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, without warranty.

Good first balisong but...
Connor G.
Okay after owning the knife for about 10 months, I have noticed that the screws constantly loosen and fall out while flipping. Its a pain to have to check on them and every 10 minutes of flipping.
I have only had one balisong and a crappy trainer so I can't say much but my bali has perfect play. Razor sharp. And solid build. I have only had to tighten 1 torque screw once since I bought around 6 months ago. I believe it is light for a balisong. The overall look is nice and the blade seems to hold its edge. For me the squared off handles make it hard for some moves like fanning
Solid Knife

This knife has very high quality for its price. It's completely smooth with slightly rounded handles. The blade came extremely sharp, and I'm still unable to find any "blemish's". I do have a slight problem with the thin handles and the lack of grip on the handles. Other than that, exceptional value!
Good knife
Brayden A.
Very sharp, and very durable. Flips very smooth, but the handles are skinny. It took some getting used to, but it is much better than a CCC knife. I've had it for about a week and I don't regret my purchase.
Awesome Knife
Bryant F.
Overall this is a great knife, especially if you're just getting into balisongs or upgrading from a CCC, Bear and Son, etc. It is very well built and the pivots are very smooth. The blackwash looks fantastic and the "blemish" on my knife is a little dark spot on the handle that you can't even see. Im not an expert flipper by any means but she flips very well, however the thin handles let it twist on you sometimes when doing twirls and such. All in all a great knife at a great price.

I got in on the 'blem' model. Still not sure why its a blem. The only thing I can figure is on one side the top swedge is barely longer on one side. This thing is fantastic. Awesome quality and finish and its ridiculously sharp.

The thin profile is great too for pocket carry. I bought a Benchmade balisong sheath for it and it fit perfect. Well worth the price.
great knife
judy m.
So great I bought 2, awesome knife, great flipper, great weight/balance , handles all tricks advanced or not - I even like the tanto style blade and how thin the handles are.great construction. Thanks again bladehq.
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
Joe c.
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
Wyatt S.
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
tariq m.
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.
Derek H.
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.
