The Mantis Vuja De is finally here at the KnifeCenter and what a cool knife this is! The butterfly karambit – many people thought it couldn’t be done but the genius behind Mantis and QTRM5TR Knives, Jared West, has pulled it off and executed it well. It features a very cool and effective button that locks the knife in both the open and closed positions. It’s not really designed for practicing your flipping tricks as the lock automatically engages when the knife becomes completely open. It could flip smoother, like a Benchmade 51 or 62, and it could be a little sharper like an Emerson Karambit but it really is nothing like those other knives. It’s in a class all its own with a 2″ M-VX steel hawkbill blade and 7″ overall profile including the rear finger hole so you’ll never have the problem of guessing which one the safety handle is again. Karambits are tactical, defense specific tools and the Vuja De by Mantis Knives is no different, plus it has the cool added feature of being a Bali-Song flipper. Check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

There’s nothing like sitting around practicing your flipping skills with a quality butterfly knife. New from Mil-Tac, the Tactical Bali Tool designed by Jason Breeden is like nothing else you’ve ever flipped before. This butterfly knife does not have a locking latch but a pair of strong magnets in the handle that keep the knife open or closed without impeding flipping. There is a strong detent that keeps the knife closed so it will not open accidentally and once that initial force is overcome, the knife flips very smoothly. Breeden, also the designer of the Spyderco Captain, has a thing for multi-functional blades and his new Bali-Song does not disappoint. The base of the blade is a pry tool and the finger choil can double as a non-leather skull crusher but does not appear to be an able glass breaker. The 3-3/4″ N690Co blade is amazingly sharp from factory and is a simple shape with plenty of belly. The Tactical Bali Tool is a very cool new item, check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

Building off the overwhelming success of the Model 42, the newest Bali-Song from Benchmade is an absolute beaut. The 62 keeps the same Weehawk blade shape, now made from D2 tool steel and measures in at 4-1/4″. The handles are now made from stainless steel for a heavier knife which means easier flipping. The latch mechanism on this butterfly is the T-latch which comes attached to the bite handle with torx screws and is both reversible and removable. This knife is true Benchmade quality, making for an excellent collectible or usable bali-song and it comes with a soft nylon carry sheath.

New BaliSong Trainer $14.95
We used to offer a better variety of bali-Song trainers, but some of them became unavailable. We now have this new series from China that is a pretty good quality at a very good price. When you’re trying to perfect your style, these work great. They’re not sharp and so you won’t hurt yourself and, when you get good enough, just break out the real one.
The blade is skelotenized for realistic weight and balance to give you the edge in a training scenario. The handles have a bit more grip than the standard training knife for added purchase during a training session where the perspiration may play into the exercises. The blade comes in at about one-half inch shorter than a live blade and with the blunted end and edges, it makes training a safer activity than just taping the blades or grinding down the edge and tip. An overall great training tool!
Blade Length: 4″ Training Blade
Closed Length: 5-1/4″
Overall Length: 9″

Benchmade 53 Bali-Song Butterfly Knife
Benchmade got their start making butterfly knives, so it always gives us an extra thrill when they bring out a new model! The new model 53 gave us an extra, extra thrill because it is the first Benchmade butterfly to be made with offset handles-as best as we can remember. The sculpted G10 gives the fly a strong hand purchase, and is very comfortable for repetitive cutting tasks. The D2 steel also makes this a great pick for an Every-Day-Carry-fly!
