Chimera Balisong

The Chimera Balisong is a fresh new creation from Hom Design. Packed full of cutting edge elements and premium features, the Chimera raises the bar in the production segment and is dual-purpose that is true to its name: the knife excels at both a cutting tool and a performance flipper. Unique to this model, the overlays are titanium and provide a solid exterior structural design for the hidden zen pins that pass through the composite liners. The blade not only uses premium S35VN steel and a crowned spine across all models, but has a pinch-free spade tang that is inspired by the legendary Balibalistic Knives. The innovation culminates at the titanium pin latch, which can retract manually into the handle without any tools, springs, or magnets– a first in the balisong world.

The version 2 of the Chimera has revisions that result in a thinner and lighter knife. Change log below:  

-blade reprofiled to be smaller in width and lighter weight
-spine tang cup of the blade radiused
-chamfering on blade tang
-Composite liners have been machined down to be thinner and lighter 
-Spacers are made of G10 or Carbon Fiber (vs titanium V1)
-Titanium retractable latch now has a titanium pin (vs stainless V1)
