In July 2020, Benchmade goes back to its roots with the Benchmade 85 Ti Bali-Song. The balisong or butterfly knife is virtually the foundation of the Benchmade Knife Company. This latest edition has all the things everyone’s always loved about a Benchmade Bali.
It features a stonewash finished 4.4” CPM S30V drop point blade with slight recurve, and a blade thickness of 0.124” hardened to 58-60 HRC. It has a through-hole milled fuller for a lighter weight and a badass look.
The integral single piece titanium billet handles are through-hole milled, and it has a handle thickness of less than a half-inch. It effortlessly flips with stainless steel ball bearings. When not in use, it securely locks up with a magnetic latch lock. It comes with a nylon sheath with multiple carrying options. It’s 5.5” closed and weighs about 5.29 ounces.
