For our latest balisong metamorphosis, we set out to provide you with a product that transforms the Kershaw Lucha into a tier one flipper. We reduced the weight of the stock Lucha by 1.35 ounces so it sits at a perfect 4.55 ounces installed. Not everyone feels like spending more on handles than the knife costs (we are looking at you titanium!). Our first channel construction handle kit features 6061 PURPLE hard coat anodized aluminum. The handles are optimized for better balance with a bit of added girth and length. We've included stainless steel washers to set between the aluminum and bearings so they are riding against steel for that smooth action. This model features a latch-delete design for competition flipping.
*Knife Not Included
-Weight of knife with installed aluminum scales - 4.55 oz.
-Purple Hard Coat Anodized Finish
-Precision Milled in the USA, Flytanium Design
-Includes Flytanium polishing cloth and sticker
*Installation of the scales requires some basic tools and knowledge. You will need a T6 and T8 torx bit to remove the screws and pivots. The parts are slipfit, and you may need to use two bits at a time if your posts spin. Be sure that the four (4) included washers sit between the aluminum handles and the bearings. The bearings can NOT sit directly against the aluminum handles. Be sure to use thread locker and tune the handles for minimum play. If you need more instructions, please email us.
Disclaimer: There are many small parts and pieces on the Lucha. Flytanium is not responsible for lost or damaged pieces. Disassemble at your own risk.
*Please Note: Kershaw's Warranty does not cover disassembly of any knife by any person other than Kershaw’s Warranty department.
