    I have the following for sale.....



    While ALL of these Balisongs are in new from the manufacturer condition (unused / unflipped) they still have some various scuffs / scratches / handling marks, etc. Often times these knives arrived from the manufacturer in this condition, the Japanese Production Facilities weren't known for providing excellent handling of their knives, at this point in time. So... the point being, ALL of these Vintage Japanese Balisongs are as received from the production facility shortly after the time of production and as such many have slight 'imperfections'.



    That being said, I purchased a collection from an individual and have since decided to sell it.... so here goes.

Black Micarta handle w/ 'sand paper' like material to improve grip and handling of the knife.

    1 million and 9. Benchmade Model 42 'T-Latch' Balisong

    Specifications

    Blade Steel : Sandvik 12C27 Stainless Steel

    Blade Length : 4 in.
    Closed Length: 5 in.

    OAL Length Opened : 9 in.

    The venerable Model 42 Benchmade. What else is there to say? It's like the 1911 of the balisong world. Channel titanium constructed handles, Stainless steel blade. Lifetime Guaranteed by Benchmade, all American Made. Comes with original sheath, no box. It is indeed the answer to life, the universe and everything. (A Douglass Adams reference for those of you less well read, after which the Model 42 was named.) These have been discontinued for some time now, right around the turn of the century, this is the earlier version of the model 42, the "T-Latch" model, the predecessor to the "Spring Latch" model.

    Condition Note: Approximately 98%, Edge is all original, never sharpened / never used.... there is a small 'scuff' or 'scratch' area on the hande (as seen in the pics) and there is an incredibly small scratch on the blade only visible under the right light, which I was unable to capture in the photos.

    1 million and 10. Robert Wrench Skinner

    Specifications

    Blade Steel : Carbon Steel

    Blade Length : 5 3/4 in.

    OAL Length : 10 5/8 in.

    This knife was handmade by a very intriguing individual by the name of Robert Wrench in the early to mid 1970's. It is unbelievably well made, the fit and finish is outstanding and it's an absolute tank of a knife. The sheath is also remarkably well made, although I believe he had the sheath done by another maker (Treestump Leasther Works). He made this knife for Abercrombie and Fitch while they were still a high end sporting goods store. Mr. Wrench also worked for Boeing Air and on the Apollo Space Program as well as holding a number of various knife and tool patents. This knife is a Model #4 and is serial number 029, this is a VERY rare knife by a VERY incredible person. The handle is comprised of micarta and brass. Mr. Wrench was out of Oregon.

    Condition Note : Approximately 85%, the edge is all original, never sharpened but there are some scratches on the blade and some spots off pitting and corrosion, there are also two small "holes" in the micarta handle, as seen in the pics. Do bear in mind that this knife was made in the early 1970's.

    Price: $500.00

    Blade Steel : Stainless Steel

    Blade Length : 6 3/4 in.

    OAL Length : 11 1/2 in.

    This knife was handmade by John Eks son, Gary Ek and is a commemorative as one of the last 50 knives to be made using the 'John Ek Knife , Miami FLA' marking. This would have been around the time they moved out of Florida and into Richmond, Virginia. (Previous to BlackJack Knives buying them out and then having production done in Effingham, Illinois.) This is a VERY rare piece, obviously.... being limited to 50 units made in the classic design of his fathers venerable Model #2, which was sold exclusively to American troops going to combat in World War II.

    Condition Note : Approximately 90%, edge is all original / never sharpened. There are some marks of discoloration on the blade and there are many light scratches as well. The handle is in good shape and the box and paperwork are pretty much as new.

    Price: $650.00

    As with everything that I sell, if you're not 100% satisfied with the purchase you may certainly return the item for a complete refund of the purchase price. I, of course, cannot (and will not) be held liable for the knives AFTER they leave my possession, should the cutlery you purchased be damaged in transport and / or after you receive said cutlery, as unfortunate of a situation as that would be, there will be no refunds from me due to this. All the more reason for you to opt for insurance on the cutlery. Let me reiterate, AFTER the cutlery leaves my possession I will not be held responsible / accountable for it.



    All prices are inclusive of S&H in the U.S., there will be a 4% charge for PayPal, I prefer USPS, Bank Money Orders or Cashiers Check for payment, however. Insurance is up to the buyer. No International Sales. I will wait on personal checks to clear prior to shipping. I can also process Visa, Mastercard and Discover credit cards, as well (again with a 4% fee).



    It's YOUR responsibility to know the laws at YOUR location, not mine. Should any of these knives be illegal in your area I highly encourage you NOT to buy them.



    I reserve the right to refuse sales to anyone for any reason. If you have an unsavory reputation within the community, I will not sell to you, don't ask! You'd only be wasting your time and energy.



    First “I’ll take it” gets the cutlery.



    My paypal address is : jj-guns (at) hot mail (dot) com



    Thanks for Looking. Feel free to PM me or email me with any questions that you might have. Should my inbox be full feel free to send an email to the above email address.

    I have far more pics of most of these knives but due to the new server developer being a fool I am limited to 20 pics per post, as such..... I am not able to list all the pics of each knife unless I wanted to make a new post for each knife. All of that said, should you be interested in one of these items, please contact me for additional pics.

    I'm way into this knife! I've been looking for it as a companion piece to my Dimachaerus Jr.

    I'd be interested in taking this off your hands it if it's still available—just show me the hoops and I'll jump.


    Thanks,

    I found it on ebay, watched the auction all week long, and just tried to bid tonight right when I got home from work.

    I spent the last 10min in a link-loop, frantically trying to place a bid, but every time i clicked "place bid" with the amount entered, it took me to a different page with "bid now" button—which just returned me to the first page (and so on and so forth) but never actually accepted any of my bids!

    Anyway, if you're still interested in selling this guy, I'm certainly still interested in purchasing him.

    Let me know here, or via PM.

    Thank you, sir.
