Hom Design started with an idea that the balisong community needed another option for quality knives. Back in 2006, it was either run-of-the-mill production butterfly knives or expensive custom art pieces. Many were designed to look “traditional” and were uninspired. 

Our original G10 Basilisk Balisong launched in 2007 as a statement to redefine what a production butterfly knife should be. The limited midtech run of the Basilisk offered a sophisticated and daring design built on a system that was designed for flipping. Featuring a gnarly hollow hand ground blade, hand tuned bushings, multi-colored rounded/textured G10 handle overlays, and weighted backspacers; the launch model offered a plethora of features at a highly reasonable price.

Our mission remains the same today — Hom Design is committed to creating highly inspired knives of the highest quality. Material innovation and passion for design are the cornerstones of our products. We love to hear from our fans and combined with their feedback, we hope to build their dream knife.
