Thug Butterfly Knife Review
The Thug butterfly knife features many of the high end butterfly knife characteristics. It has smooth, solid action and a great weight. The heavy duty, skeletonized handle gives you a solid grip and the blade is attached via pin construction. A single tang pin keeps the handles from banging.
The 3.5 blade is connected to the handles with pin construction. The blade has a modified clip point edge and partial serrations. A black finish makes for a great look. The blade is stainless steel and stands up to good, solid abuse. This is especially critical for those who practice hard. No matter how skilled you are, occasionally the knife gets away when performing a particular maneuver. A small note: many people will place a strip of electricians tape over the edge when they are practicing a new move. This way, if you hit yourself with the blade edge, it may hurt a bit but it shouldnt cut.
The 4.93 black finished stainless steel handles are skeletonized. They have a black finish that wears well. Over time, it will get a few dings in it, but it doesnt chip excessively. I classify the handles on this butterfly as heavy. They move smooth and well. Because the blade is attached with pins, it isnt necessary to continually adjust the tightness of the butterflys movement. And you never have to worry about it all flying apart. Instead, because it is built so well, you can just focus your time and effort on improving your skills.
The Thug is one of my absolute favorite, low cost butterfly knives. The action is great, the weight is good and the durability is off the charts
