This Tachyon III model has a black finished Bohler Elmax steel clip point blade, durable type III black anodized handles, and a bronzed pocket clip and hardware. Includes adjustment tool.

The latest generation of the Tachyon butterfly knife, the production Microtech Tachyon III, distinguishes itself from previous models with milled, single-piece channel construction handles, a spring latch, and a standard pocket clip. The blade showcases a non-sharpened swedge-ground tip and milled grooves with the Microtech logo, production date, and blade steel markings up front.

What would a brilliant design be without that smooth action you crave? The Tachyon III exceeds all expectations with an advanced ceramic ball-bearing pivot assembly that eliminates handle play and produces first-class flipping dynamics. The pivots utilize Viton o-rings for load dampening, and heat treated stainless steel retainer plates ensure long-lasting performance.

This balisong is one bad beauty. The ceramic bearings make each flip a beautiful orchestra of buttery smooth clicks and clacks. Best butterfly knife I've had the pleasure to own. I'd dive the materials used 5-5 , action 5-5 fit and finish is 4-5. My only complaint is the spring latch removed a very small amount of paint on the handle within the first day and at this price point this should not be a issue. But that's it. I can't compare it to a Benchmade but I can say that if you like this knife and aren't sure about it, just do it! The clicks of the handles are euphoric!
