Knife Cold Steel Paradox

Knife Cold Steel Paradox
Balisong or Butterfly knives, with their revolving handles, and strong locking mechanisms, have had a certain mystique since they were first popularized in the early 1980's. They were beguilingly simple in construction, looked a little intimidating in a user's hand, were relatively inexpensive, and there were lots of flashy ways to open them with just a few deft turns of the wrist. In short, they were a knife industry success story. There was just one downside. In the early 1990's, United States Customs outlawed the importation of all butterfly knives under, what can only be assumed to be, an arbitrary and unreasonable interpretation of the Switchblade Act. Many U.S. states soon followed suit including our home state of California, where mere possession of a Butterfly knife is a FELONY. This policy has severely curtailed the availability of these awesome tactical folders.

Now Cold Steel is proud to introduce a completely legal version of the butterfly knife that we call The Paradox™. It's designed from the ground up to specifically mimic a traditional Balisong or Butterfly knife in every respect but one : it can't be opened with one hand! That's right, the Paradox ™ is not a switchblade, gravity knife, or assisted opener and can't be opened without the use of both hands. So, while it looks like a classic Butterfly knife from the early 80's, and feels like one in your hand, it isn't. It's a legal Balisong!

Its twin handles feature two integral springs that are similar to a conventional slip joint folder. Originally pioneered in our Black Rock Hunter, they are designed to rotate 180 degrees around the blade's unique split tang and use strong opposing spring tension to lock the blade open or hold it firmly closed. Don't worry about it taking two hands to get it into action, since once its opened it will never close inadvertently. Plus, its locking mechanism is impervious to the most violent stress and shock imaginable.

Every detail of the Paradox™ is a testament to Cold Steel's renowned craftsmanship. The leaf shaped blade is hollow ground from imported Japanese AUS 8A Stainless (instead of the cheap steel used by our competitors) and, due to the latest advances in heat treatment, it offers a thin, ultra keen edge that lasts.

The skeletonized handles are CNC machined from solid billets of 6061 aluminum (instead of being cheaply cast out of zinc) and feature a hard-anodized coating to reduce scratches and oxidation. If you're a Balisong fan, but don't want to take the risk of being arrested, the Paradox™ is a terrific alternative. Clip it to your waistband or pocket where it screams "CUSTOM HAND MADE BALISONG".
