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.

  • 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

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
