Large Vintage Filipino Handmade (FHM) Balisong aka Butterfly Knife, Bone Handle, Unused. I did a lot of research on this one. I found very few comparable knives. Notice the flat handles versus the more common rounded handles on most FHM balisongs. It's a great knife and would make an excellent collection piece or user knife. 

Here's what I found regarding the design: Ochobado Style (8 corners on bottom bolsters), Bayoneta (Bayonet) Blade, Carved Horse Bone Scales, Steel Housing, Aluminum Latch, PHILIPPINES stamp on handle. Probably made in the 70's-90's time period with an unknown maker. 

 

- The knife is unused. There are scuffs, scratches and patina on the knife from handling and storage. I don't see any other condition issues. See the pictures as they represent the condition accurately. 

- The blade moves smoothly in the handles. The latch is tight when the knife is closed and open. 

- Approximately 11 inch total length, approximately 5 inch blade. 

- Knife only. 

 

CASH OFFERS ALWAYS CONSIDERED 

 

SHIPPING: I normally ship using USPS Ground Advantage in a box. I sometimes use USPS Priority for heavier or expensive knives. On orders over $400 I ship with signature required at delivery. NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING without contacting me first please!

 

WANT LIST: I do my best to maintain an inventory of interesting, unique and hard to find knives. I'm always looking for single pieces and collections. My current switchblade focus includes Miniature & Keychain, Vintage Imports from Spain, France & Japan, RPK's, Rizzuto's, older Microtechs and some other 90's-2000's American Switchblades and I'm starting to get into pre-ban American switchblades. I also like interesting miniature knives and arms, 1980's Import Balisongs and older Great Eastern Cutlery folders. 

 

ABOUT: I'm an US Army Veteran that became a big pocket knife user while I was on active duty in Panama. Back then my goto was always a Spyderco since I grew up in Colorado. In 2010 I started collecting knives and in 2021 I decided to go all in and became a dealer. I love the gig however it's a lot of work for a one man show. I spend my days buying, selling and sometimes trading knives. I also travel to knife and gun shows regularly, walking up and down aisle's looking for cool stuff to offer to my customers and the online world. 

I've met a lot of great people along my dealer journey. I've also realised there's a lot of sharks out there in the knife world. The honest ones are fine, it's the dishonest ones that suck. I've been ripped of and scammed many more times as a dealer than I ever was as a collector. I guess it's a volume deal. I'm buying and selling way more knives than I ever did as a collector. 

In my listings I always do my best to give accurate information about the knives I'm selling including what it is and the condition. I take lots of pictures showing as much of the knives as possible and offer video's for all the switchblades and some of the other knives I list. I research sale prices and other available information on all my knives. I also have a great network of other dealers and collectors to get information and opinions from. All that said, I still make mistakes so please let me know if something I say is innacurate or misleading.
