This week on Spotlight Series we’re checking out the Legacy line of USA-made balisongs from Combative Edge. This is a brand new line from Combative Edge and you can’t find these guys too many places, so we’re pretty excited to have them.
In contrast to something like a BRS, the Legacy balis aren’t tailored specifically for high energy flipping. This is the working man’s EDC bali-song, if such a thing can exist. The acid washed S90V stainless steel blades are 4.5″ long, designed for hard use cutting, and can be put through their paces while still retaining a sharp edge. The line features three different blade styles – a bowie, a tanto, and a spear point. The spear point is the coolest looking thanks to its two-tone styling, but the false second edge is sharp enough that you really don’t want to whap yourself with it. Cool as hell, but definitely not advisable for beginners.
Handles are rugged G10 scales over thick titanium liners granting a very sturdy hand feel. The texture of the G10, as well as the size and thickness of the handle make this really comfortable to hold and offer a pretty stellar grip. The lock-up is remarkably solid, more so than a lot of other balisongs I’ve handled, letting it feel secure and stable when you’re using it as a knife. The pivots enable a smooth, fluid movement for some nice opening and closing action. If you know what you’re doing with a bali you can have a lot of fun with one of these.
If you’re looking for a butterfly knife that puts the emphasis on knife and will stand up to hard use and abuse, you can’t go wrong with the Combative Edge Legacy line. To learn more about these knives, click here. To see our entire inventory, visit knifecenter.com
