M390 Microclean® - a martensitic high-performance chrome steel produced by powder metallurgy. Due to its alloy concept, it has extremely high wear resistance and high corrosion resistance. Due to its high wear resistance, it adequately maintains the shape of the edge, so the blade stays sharp for a very long time (requiring minimal maintenance). Another of the advantages is resistance to the formation of "wire" during sharpening. The steel has a high chromium content of 20.0% (Cr) doped with 1.9% carbon (C), vanadium 4.0% (V), and is hardened between 59-61 HRC. This super steel is comparable to Carpenter's CPM 20CV or CTS-204P steels. Manufactured by Böhler Edelstahl in Kapfenberg, Austria.
Blade - geometrical tanto type, finished with elegant satin finish. The sharp transition of the belly extends the length of the cutting edge in relation to the length of the blade converging towards the needle-sharp tip of the knife. The thickness of the blade provides high strength while the high, flat grind gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. Extremely smooth pivot action.
Handle - sandblasted titanium grips with a slightly rough texture. Chamfered edges of the covers eliminate sharp edges. Pivot axes set extremely close to each other due to the lack of stop pins. Such a solution allows for much smoother operation, making it easier to perform complex tricks. For the same reason, the designer dispensed with the bar that secures the arms in the open position, on the assumption that the main purpose of his balisong is to provide fun,
Case - included is a high-quality leather case with the manufacturer's logo for safe storage and transportation of the balisong.
