    Benchmade 42 Balisong BM 42 for sale

    Here's a used but not abused BM 42 I got recently in a local trade for some gear. Don't really need another knife so this one must go. $350 shipped conus with delivery confirmation. It doesn't have a box or sheath, just the knife. As you can see, it has some light wear, the spring latch is a tiny bit wobbly but there is no blade play at all, no scratches, dings or gouges and is in over all VG+ condition. The edge doesn't appear to have ever been re sharpened and it's still sharp!

    440C blade, SS handles.


    All sales final.

    Contact me directly for payment options.



    Thanks for looking!

    The Poster was warning to look out for fakes.

    If it is true that the originals had Ti handles, either it has been modified or it is not original.

    A little Google showed this...

    Benchmade Model 42: The BM42 is the standard in the balisong world. Benchmade's longtime commitment to balisongs has resulted in their ability to turn out high quality production balisongs. With an MSRP of $200, Benchmade balisongs are economical in addition to being well made.
    • Pros: Benchmade quality, widely available, spring latch (though also available in T-latch), Titanium handles (some may consider a con), durable/long-lasting.
    • Cons: nothing substantial

    Some people just need a High-Five

    If it is modified then say so. If it is fake it does not belong on JerzeeDevil.

    The 42SS had zen pins, which the one pictured does not. Did the OP make a mistake and say stainless steel instead of titanium? Or was this one modified?

    The latch looks very suspect.

    Look up the models of the 42 and you can tell this is a fake. Wobbly latch, SS handles with a 440C blade are the trademarks of a fake. I could care less if this is commenting on a sales thread and give me an infraction if you must, but I'm not letting some poor SOB get a fake with their hard earned cash.
