Do you flip? Do you want to flip? Then the Kershaw Lucha is for you. This is a high-quality butterfly knife that’s made in the USA. Next level materials include a 14C28N stainless steel blade and all-steel handle. Next level performance comes from Kershaw’s meticulous design. For instance, the blade tapers so that the top has more weight to pendulum around smoothly. The Lucha features dual KVT ball-bearing pivots for extra-easy operation. The handle has a rounded bevel so it rolls effortlessly in the hand. Even the latch is rounded so it never catches as you flip. The latch also features a positive stop so it never contacts the blade. The full-sized Lucha was designed with feedback from real flippers. This light, fast butterfly knife will jump, fly, and spin in your hands.
When I was a young boy, climbing the hills of Santorini, tending to our flock of sheep, I'd gaze over to my father and would say, "Papa? Will there ever be an exceptional butterfly knife that flips incredibly well, has a skeletonized handle with sandwich construction, and uses dual KVT bearings?"
My father would beam down at me, and tell me the legends of our people; that one day a company would make a butterfly knife for the people. A butterfly knife that would not cause them to cry out in anguish over their tattered wallets, a bali that would not shatter from light use or have pins that fell out. Truly we would be blessed with a bounty from the heavens.
And lo, one day our prayers were answered! Kershaw handed down the 5150 Lucha, and we rejoiced in our good fortune! No longer did we have to subject ourselves to cast metal handles, or horrendously expensive knives. Our children & our children's children would be able to flip and have their souls be at peace!
