A staple of Filipino knife culture, the Bali Song or Butterfly Knife is a fun and convenient pocket knife design that has stood the test of time. Easy one handed operation combined with a secure open position make this a convenient carry option. Blades will be made of 1084 with the handles forged out of 1/8 sheet steel. A latch will be fitted to hold the blade open and closed. This class is not for beginners. You should have a minimum of a beginner’s blacksmithing class or have taken our “Blacksmith Folding Knife” workshop.
