Schrade should make a lighter mini model of this knife, with a 3.4 inch size blade made of AUS 8 steel.
But Jeff, Kershaw DID make a balisong. It was called the Bradley Kimura, and it was awesome. I wish they still made them.
These just came back in stock at blade ops. Increased the price to 79.95 though….
Too heavy too bad. Perhaps they will decide to make a product that will gain more acceptance.
Long time subscriber and love your videos but i’ve always been slightly annoyed at how you don’t provide a description for your links. I always click them in hopes to find the knife but only find books. I know i’m being petty lol. Keep up the good work!
Nice 😉 Funny name nice blade.
Would the pin design lead to loosening after a while?
Balisong collection video?
Are you still doing the giveaway? Either way was thinking of grabbing one of these and trying to flip the handles on it.
Hey boys I need new hardware bad…untold…
I’ve had the Schrade Manila folder for two days, and I found myself enjoying just manipulating it while at work or watching tv at home- love the heavy, sturdy feel and the nostalgia of the old school butterfly knives… but… I noticed that the tang pin is already getting pinched and deforming(!)
So it’s disappointing to realize the pin steel isn’t hardened, and the handles will touch; and will make the locking the handles by latch soon useless.
You should review that bear and son silver vein
I used to watch your channel quite a bit awhile back, but just kinda forgot after awhile. I’m glad I stumbled across your channel again. You are part of the reason I am a knife reviewer on here so thanks for that. Hopefully one day my tiny, struggling channel will be half as big as yours. Anyways, it’s good to be back!
The click clacking noise a balisong makes is part of the intimidation factor with the knife as well so I like the heavy design of this one. I’m definitely putting this one on my wishlist.
Great to see this
LOVE that knife!!! I promise, if I win, I will NOT cut off any of my bodily appendages. Scout’s Honor!
I think this will be great for me since I’m a lefty.
Thanks for the vid!
I just found out that this video of yours has been featured on a Finnish store’s website.
Video is way too long

I have many knives but no balisong. I would like to have one to try. Great review.
awesome design! Really looking forward to getting one for my collection. thanks Schrade for another beauty!
Strange, this didn’t show up in my sub feed.
heads up 8 oz knife is almost unflippable!!!
Nice knife glad it’s made in usa
Review the blade runners systems replicant!
How cool for Schrade to make one of these.
No doubt it’s made in the US since it’s not Manilla but Manila hahaha..
I’ve got the same Bear and Son balisong, but I’m having problems with the latch sticking in place on either side of the safe handle. Any advice on how to fix this?
It looks like Schrade has done it again.
I bought this, and then watched this. can confirm that you get lots of cuts. it may just be cuz I just graduated from a shitty cs go knife, but I did cut myself a lot
While this knife is overly built which is a good thing there are 1/16 gaps where bushings or washers would be causing there to be alot of handle wiggle. I have to modify the knife and either remove the pins and add washers to fill the gap or crimp down more on the handle to close the gap the blade sits between. I will be using this as a carry knife (it’s legal to carry in Louisiana). The blade edge is dull. I can barely cut paper with it. Luckily the knife is over built and I can put my own edge on it.The latch tends to get caught between the palm and handle when flipping too. I’m going to drill some holes and add a spring to keep it in place. The pin finishes are pitted and uneven also. All in all what you get is a knife made with quality material but poorly designed i you actually looking to use this as it’s intended for. With alittle modifications it can prove to be a good knife though. I paid $90 with tax and all. It’s worth $50. I will be making a review video review later when I have time.
Or buy a fake Benchmade 42 that flips amazingly for only $20.
Can I please get the knife
USA made? Nice!
