The Bradley Kimura butterfly knife is great for recreational use. It features textured G-10 handle scales over stainless steel liners that provide a comfortable weight while flipping. If you're a knife fanatic, and enjoy doing knife tricks, this is a great option for you!

Im blown away by this knife i really am. enjoying this knife as much as my Benchmade flippers and my Kershaw lucha and my old model Kimura's. The knife came with plenty of oil on it which is a good thing also a tad on the tight side but it breaks in like a dream. The Jade G10 handles are amazing to look at and feel great flipping. Mine came with a centered tang pin and no stripped screws. This knife in my opinion is the best Kimura yet! Honestly. Give this knife a try!
This knife was pretty good for me. I like to use my knives even when it comes to Bali’s but this one seems built to work. I had some screws strip on me but Bear and Son is sending me new screws with no questions asked. I really like this Bali and the photos don’t do the scales the justice they deserve. They are beautiful! Personally I wouldn’t go with any other color because the light blue looks great on the stonewashed finish. Overall a great entry Bali for the price.
The knife flips fine and ships oiled with a nice sharp edge. The scales look really cool and the clasp works nicely both keeping the knife shut, and while it's open. The finer details are where it disappoints. Mine came with black anodized screws that were not stripped, but were definitely very scratched, ruining the finish. But the engraving on the blade for blade steel and serial number is so god awful. It's illegible and it really ruins that side of the blade aesthetically. Seriously, it puts chinese knockoffs to shame with how horrible this lasering looks.
Upon opening the box, the safe handle pivot screw was so tight the blade was binding and wouldn't freely drop away from the handle. The bite handle by contrast was so loose there was enough play for blade tap right out of the box. Upon closer inspection when pulling the knife apart, the pivot screw was cross threaded causing it to be impossible to tighten enough. How this ever made it out of the factory is a mystery to me. I won't be buying any more Bradley or Bear Ops(the actual manufacturer) made knives.
