Maxace Knives Obsidian-S Butterfly Knife Satin Spear/Bowie Blade w/ Black G-10 Handles
Obsidian Balisong collaboration between from Maxace & Midnightcat Studios.  
Outstanding fit and finish with spear point or bowie blade style, satin finish and black G-10 handles.  
The innovative new latch design on these Balisongs offers a fresh new take on the old, there is actually a spring inside of the latch that pushes against the T at the and to create tension.    
Built for years of flipping with the same quality and performance that we are used for all Maxace products.

    Overall build quality

    Posted by Jeremy on 15th Jul 2021

    I got it as my first Balisong with a live blade and overall I'm pretty satisfied with the build quality and performance my only issue is the blade strength. Personally I used it as a excuse and after 2 weeks of pretty intense wear opening and cutting cardboard boxes and cutting string it dulled the tip but not enough for me to have to sharpen it or anything so far and I've had it for almost a month now.

    The Obsidian-S is a work of art!

    Beautiful as it is, it's rock-solid. I prefer the G10 scales of the -S. If you need to round the corners some with fine sandpaper, to tailor the fit & feel to your hand, nothing could be more simple. Just be sure to do so conservatively; you can't put back what's been removed... I opted for the Spear blade. It's shank-tastic! I love it! I assume the Bowie would flip a little more nimbly, especially for a beginner! But I didn't buy this to practice & play with...I have Maxace's practice models for that. In 2008 my balisong saved my life. In a heartbeat, do to equipment failure, I needed to cut/dig my way through a heavy rigging line, that was seconds away from dragging me to my death. A tipical folder's joint very likely would not have been strong enough to handle the abuse. But the balisong is far stronger. I will carry one for the rest of my life; and I'll probably be buried with it!
