Here at Flytanium, we've made a lot of accessories and parts for a lot of knives. We figured it's about time we built a knife of our own from the ground up. We've teamed up with renowned custom balisong maker Eldon Talley to make his, and our, first production knife, the Talisong Z.
The handles are precision milled in our shop in Utah out of 7075 aluminum, the same high-zinc alloy used in aerospace construction. These channel-style handles are contoured, knurled, and weighted for fast and controlled flipping. The handles are type II anodized for improved abrasion and corrosion resistance. The custom-made pivots are micro adjustable and include ceramic ball bearings and hardened steel washers, a combination that provides incredible strength and absolute minimum friction. The knife utilizes custom made zen pins. The knife can be tuned to perfection with the fine-threaded pivot screws.
The Scimitar-style blade is made from AEB-L, a steel prized by custom knifemakers for its great toughness, high hardness, and corrosion resistance. It has a stonewashed finish and a crowned spine, making for a knife that is comfortable to flip, and one that hides scratches.
The Talisong Z comes with a blue Bali-Boot that was developed as a safe and innovative way to carry your latchless balisong. It is soft and flexible, and won't mar up the handles. It is paired with a paracord lanyard and blue silicone fly bead. The lanyard can be threaded through a belt and used as a static cord, or you can just slip the entire thing into your pocket.
