Damascus steel blade is approximately 4 inches long, a skinny sort of utility with just a very slight recurve. The handles are milled out of solid brass and feature white mother of pearl inserts with hints of pinks, greens, and blues. This knife measures approximately 5 inches overall closed, and 8 1/2 inches overall open. The inserts are perfectly done and the knife is very well-made overall.
And the buyer says:
" I think this knife is just about the most elegant folder I have ever seen. This truly reflects all the simple beauty of the originals and the slim recurve damascus blade and particulary the subtle asymmetric relief on the handle ends just sets it apart from the majority of other knives. I think you can tell how happy I am. "
Ah, another happy customer!
Item #2 is a hand-made custom by Pabu Cutlery of Portland, Oregon. The Damascus steel spearpoint blade is 4 inches long and makes excellent use of the symetric pattern in the Damascus. However, it is not overly sharp on either side. I can optionally arrange to have either or both sharpened for you at no extra charge. The handles are milled out of solid brass and feature white mother of pearl inserts with hints of pinks, greens, and blues. This knife measures approximately 5 inches overall closed, and 8 1/2 inches overall open. The inserts are perfectly done and the knife is very well-made overall.
And the buyer says:
"Got the Bali today and I must say that this is most exceptional... The MOP is good and the fit is exemplary. I like the damascus also."
Item #3 is a wonderful hand-made custom by Pabu Cutlery of Portland, Oregon. The Damascus steel 3D Spearpoint blade is is 4 inches long. This is all hand work and the result is masterful. The handles are milled out of solid brass and feature white mother of pearl inserts with hints of pinks, greens, and blues. This knife measures approximately 5 inches overall closed, and 8 1/2 inches overall open. The inserts are perfectly done and the knife is very well-made overall.
Item #4 is another wonderful hand-made custom by Pabu Cutlery of Portland, Oregon. The Damascus steel 3D kris blade is is 4 inches long. This is all hand work and the result is masterful. The handles are milled out of solid brass and feature white mother of pearl inserts with hints of pinks, greens, and blues. This knife measures approximately 5 inches overall closed, and 8 1/2 inches overall open. The inserts are perfectly done and the knife is very well-made overall. If you've wanted to add Pabu's very unique 3D Kris blades to your collection, but aren't quite up to the thousand-dollar price tag the fancier pieces command, here's your chance to get one for a lot less.
Item #5 is a masterpiece from Pabu Cutlery in Portland, Oregon. It's all Devin Thomas Damascus steel except, of course, for the four small ironwood inserts. It's just over 11 inches long overall open, 6 3/4 inches closed. This is some nice filework on the edges in the Ricasso area. It has both a sharpening and a grip choil. Notice, please, the perfect symetry of the Damascus pattern between the two handles. This impressive, presentation-piece knife weighs over a half-pound.
And the buyer says:
"A masterpiece indeed! The artist's use of the Damascus steel is incredible."
Yes, a masterpiece indeed.
Item #6 is one of the famous Pabu Cutlery 3D Kris blades -- and what an example of it! Overall closed, it measures 4 5/8". The handles are 4 1/8" long. Overall open, it's 7 5/8". The blade is 3 1/2" long. The blade is Thomas Damascus and the wild, swirling pattern of the Damascus matches the wildly undulating shape of the blade. The handles are polished stainless steel (single pieces milled out) with expertly-done Mother of Pearl inserts. Most of the MOP is white with pinks and blues. One insert has some gold lip. It weighs 4 1/4 oz.
This knife comes in a beautiful hand-made, fitted presentation box (also handmade by Pabu) made from solid (single piece, not jointed) rosewood with a sliding lid. The box is leather-lined and almost as pretty as the knife.
What a showpiece!
And the buyer says:
The package arrived here today, and I must say the knife looks extraordinary
gorgeous! Please let the talented maker know that I'm very happy with it. I
really like the 3D kris.
I'm very satisfied with it, and I would say it was well worth the money.
Yes, "extraordinary" and "gorgeous" are the terms I'd use to describe this balisong.
Item #7 defies words. This is a true
masterpiece. It's a Pabu 3D Kris and it's all Devin Thomas Damascus
steel, well over a half-pound of it -- except, of course, for
the genuine, old-stock
Ivory inserts. Notice the special latch. The handles are approximately 5 1/8" long. It measures just shy of 12" long closed with just over 6" of blade protruding. Open, it's just shy of 16" long overall. Is it a knife or a short sword? You'll have to decide for yourself. What you won't have trouble deciding is where to put this piece: right in the center of your collection.
Item #8 is a genuine, Benchmade Model 30 Bali-Song. It is a very early production piece. It's in excellent condition. The polished blade is bright and there are no chips on the original edge. The handles have typical very minor scratches from the latch. It comes with the original, but somewhat unusual nylon sheath which has two unusually-large loops in the back to accomodate horizontal carry on even a very wide belt. The sheath is also in excellent condition.
Item #9 is a Sportman's Original Balisong Fan Knife. These were hand-made in the Philippines and imported into the US in the 60s and 70s. This one is unusal first because of its size, over 8 inches long overall closed and over 15 inches long open, and second because it's in near mint condition in the original box. The handles are brass, U-channel construction with brass bolsters and bone inserts held on by copper pins. There's some minor filework decoration on the latch. It comes with the original cotton denim sheath.
And the buyer says:
Chuck, I got the knife. It will fit just fine
with my small collection. Thanks!
Ah, another satisfied customer. That's what I like to hear. The near-mint condition of this knife makes it a fine addition to any collection. It's a great example of the traditional Filipino Handmade Balisong.
Item #10 is a Benchmade Custom Weehawk. It features a 3/16" thick blade and thick, heavy stainless steel handles. It also features the late-model limited-travel latch that makes it impossible for the latch to hit the blade. Consequently, the balde is in perfect condition. The latch shows some wear from opening and closing. It is in excellent to almost near-mint condition. It comes with a leather sheath that is original to the knife. The sheath is in about the same condition as the knife, excellent. An excellent example of a custom Bali-Song and Sheath.
