    Hi everyone, I've been holding onto this knife for a while now, but now is the time to let it go. Recently got into a motorcycle crash and medical bills are not cheap, nor is fixing the bike.

    Up for sale is a Benchmade Model 44 with the rare custom finish. It's in great condition. I've have owned three 44's in the past and other balisongs from that era, such as the model 45, and this one is by far the cleanest I've seen (however, the tip is a bit blunt). This is my very last bali and I'm ready to let it go :cry: Comes with the original box, papers, and sheath. Never sharpened. Lock up is TIGHT open and closed. The 44 is the right-most tanto bali in all pictures.

    I knew the answer to this at one point, but I forgot the exact answer. I tried to google old sources as well but they've all seemed to disappear...I believe the custom finish means the blade was hand polished. If anyone else has anymore information, please let me know! "Custom Finish" is printed on the box.

    The 44, 45 & 48 have hidden pins and that was called "Custom Finish".
    Because some of the earlier 3X series had exposed pins...

    Custom finish would also include the countersunk holes too, which the exposed pin 3x balis did not have
    Good info
