The butterfly knives are one the most fantastic knives one can buy for EDC, meaning instead of carrying a pocket knife, why not have a Balisong. As flashy as they look, they are functional too. These butterfly knives are deployed instantly and are great for cutting because mostly have spear point blades or clip point blades in them. They are mostly thinner and easy to deploy and close as compared to traditional folding knives.

Kershaw Knives “Safety first

As butterfly knives are trendier these days as compared to pocket knives, and you will find cheap and flimsy imitations of Balisong knives everywhere but believe me they are very dangerous to handle. But it’s not same with Kershaw’s Lucha Knife, yes, it’s worth the bucks to spend. Lolz

Actually, Kershaw Lucha is a premium quality butterfly knife and with Kershaw knives’ KVT technology in it provides smooth deployment you can imagine and again KVT ball bearings in it gives a user best flipping time without a doubt.

Pivot Cutting Problem & its Solution

If you have ever before used any cheap Balisong, you have the idea that whenever butterfly knives catch on the pivot, they mostly get you cut on your own blade. But it’s Kershaw Lucha this time and having KVT ball bearings discussed earlier, its ball bearings are integrated into handle pivots giving this Lucha knife with SKU KS5150 smooth opening action and you will definitely say “this butterfly knife opens like butter”

14C28N stainless steel has HRC rating between 55 to 62 and with clip point shape as mentioned earlier its even ideal to utilize the strong tip and with thin blade, its idea for fine detail works like carvings or even its great for piercing. Once you are done, simply flip it and lock with latch lock at pommel.

Handling of Kershaw Lucha

When you have Balisong or butterfly knife, then how can you miss flipping fun that it provides. I even checked on YouTube and tried to learn few tricks of basic level to perform it with my Kershaw Lucha. Well, if you were novice or newbie like me, then please tape the blade from its edges before trying to practice, because Kershaw Lucha comes with razor sharp blade.   Once you have covered your knife’s edge then it’s safe for you to practice like it did with my Kershaw Lucha knife. And it really enjoyed it.

Final words on Kershaw Lucha Review

In Reviewing Kershaw Lucha, it clear that it is really good in hand and with tricks (couple of which I just tried to practice) but I must say, it’s a butterfly knife and it’s not a good EDC, because in many areas in US it’s not legal and you are in a constant threat if you have it there in public. The locking latch makes so much noise when you use it. It’s annoying.

Secondly with the association of Balisong knife, it doesn’t look nice as an EDC. It’s my own opinion and is subjective. Kershaw Lucha Review we have covered its handling, size and materials. If I missed anything in Kershaw Lucha review do let me know so I can update that also.

But being said all this it’s a knife worth paying for and it’s available online at lowest price so far. I got mine from there as well. They offer the lowest prices on all their products. Buy your Kershaw Lucha from there.
