Description

Description

Jason's first butterfly knife, the Brous Blades B3, stays true to the traditional balisong, but he added a dash of his own style to the mix, which is especially evident in the recurved, modified tanto blade. This model has burnt bronze cerakote coated handles and a black finished blade.

The Balisong B3 is chock full of fresh details, like a specially designed bearing system. In an effort to deliver a high-quality butterfly knife for avid flippers, the handles are stainless steel. Weight is kept in check with milled cutouts on the inside of each slab. Jimping can be found along the perimeter of the handles, adding grip-ability and control. The pocket clip is set for tip-up carry, and the B3 utilizes a 3-position latch so you can do your flipping without its interference.

Features:
  • Recurve tanto style D2 steel blade
  • Milled stainless steel handles have hidden, weight-reducing cutouts
  • Specially designed bearing pivots tailored to provide smooth action
  • 3-position latch system for open, closed, and inline (straight out) options

The brous blades B3 has a horrible reputation in the flipping community while I do not feel it is 100% deserved there is a basis for that opinion it does not flip well by modern standards it's too thin the bearings are not executed correctly (on a side note I sent my B3 in two brass plates for warranty repair a handle realignment they removed the bearings completely and inserted brass bushings in their place which did tremendously help the overall action however now it is running on a standard pivot system with phosphorus bronze washers) in that regard this knife is not the best however it is very thin and lightweight making it carry in the pocket very comfortably and the drop point Tonto with the aggressive recurve of the B3 it makes a good fighting or tactical design if you choose to carry a balisong for that purpose The Cutting Edge is done well with the high height Hollow Grind and piercing tip the latch was a cool idea but bad in order to detach the latch and open the knife it requires two steps first to undo the latch and then to secure it under the detent seeing as how there is no latch gate using the detent is necessary to prevent contact with The Cutting Edge the pocket clip is on the wrong handle going against modern balisong designs while a well-designed pocket clip small and unobtrusive it can lead to some confusion possibly resulting in injury while trying to use the knife switching between this and others so overall not the best but it has its place I think the bargain price that has been marked on these knives to get them off the shelves is a good deal as long as you're not looking for the ideal flipper
Don't overpay!

These knives are great but not for $200+

It's a $199 knife, no more. It needs work straight out of the box just to loosen up the handles, and even after that it's not "the best" flipper.
Needed loving.

I didn't set mine from blade HQ I found one for 250 at a undisclosed site, and it was the last one. When it came in I was very impressed that it came with a hardcase as opposed to a box like my microtech and Benchmade. But upon flipping it, the awestruck disappeared. It wouldn't flip after adjustment still nothing. I was about to send it back but figured I'd soak the pivots in rem oil overnight​. Did the trick this baby flips good now and the blade shape is so unique. Too sum it up my opinion of this knife is, if you want a EDC Bali that can be used to do some intermediate flipping this is a great choice I think the pivots were probably a rare instance. But for those who just want to flip I would not go for this, fanning is extremely hard and the handles are to thin. Overall as far as quality goes this knife is awesome. Only complaint about finish is the latch paint is crap started coming off after 4thtime of use. Still it's pretty and flips decent enough. I collect knives so it's a keeper
