Unique all steel Custom Design by "Darrel Ralph" Twist Butterfly Knife by MTech Extreme!
( " CANDY " to the left just loves a guy who can use his hands properly - she says Mastering a balisong really gives a guy great experience with his hands in other area's also )
“The Twist” butterfly series by M-Tech Xtreme has a smooth operation that has very little side to side give unlike many of the less expensive butterfly knives. This particular knife is Medium Weight and Solid. Doing Tricks with this Batanga are easier. It is a great butterfly with two tang studs that keep the handles from banging together this make for a tighter lock-up and reduced blade wear.
This picture doesn't do the knife justice.Its straight Gun Metal color is Great for this knife, similiar to a Satin. The blade is 440C stainless steel with a razor sharp edge.
The Twist Butterfly Knife by MTech Extreme. The Twist was designed by master knife smith Darrel Ralph and has some fabulous details. This butterfly features a plain 440C stainless steel blade and handle. Blade is marked: Designed by Darrel Ralph. Overall, the quality and construction on this one is very excellent.
One of the things that make this knife so outstanding is how customizable it is. If you don't like the latches on the right side you can switch it over to the left. The knife is constructed with Torx screws( The actual screw size may change- be aware of this) so any owner can easily adjust the knife. Since the knife can be easily disassembled and cleaning it is a breeze.

* I am impressed, red loctite solved the problem. All this knife needs is a latch gate and a pocket clip so i can EDC it. Im probablly going to buy another one or two twists from you soon. I hope you have some in stock. BTW do you have any FU42s thats not damascus.
** [ Note to the Wise ] Get a good Torx bit! Or, driver set! This is unimaginably important. If it does'nt sit tight in the torx receptacle "It's JUNK and you will strip it out !! ALSO; If you're having trouble getting the pivots loose >> use HEAT! Blow Dryer's or Heat GUN for VCT Tile work GREAT...
Sloppy fitting bits will ruin you Twist... "Husky or Colbalt Torx Driver & Bit Sets we sell here . You can also find them at Home Depot & Lowes. They are under $10.00 and everyone who ownes a knife should have one of these
for repairs or cleaning.
