-- Knife expert Konstantine La reviews the top 3 butterfly knives on the market. He notes how some knives are meant to be cheap toys whereas others are for real knife fans. The cheap toys he refers to are flea market butterfly knives that will usually break on people within a few days of use. The real knife for real knife fans are professional quality balisongs made by great manufacturers such as Benchmade.
Konstantine noted how a cheap $40 balisong can be compared with an expensive $200 balisong by using Loctite. Loctite protects the screws from falling out and, because of that, protects the knife. This will prevent the knife from falling apart during use. This also preserves the knife quality.
In the article, the benefits of a $200 Benchmade knife is noted. For $5, you can get the edge sharpened back to a factory finish. Benchmade will also mail you replacement screws if you need it. You can learn more about the best balisong knives here http://bestmachete.net/balisong-knives-reviewed/
