Basilisk is a new line of semi-custom balisong knives designed by Jerry Hom who also goes by the trade name Twirl Designs. Jerry designed the knife, but his friends at Dalton Combat Cutlery of Schererville, Indiana actually manufacture it. Basilisk Balisongs are made in small batches with plenty of hand attention. So, while they're not a true custom knife, they're really not a typical factory knife either. Really what Basilisk is is an opportunity to own a knife of excellent quality at a remarkably-affordable price.
