What To Expect
Hey When you purchase a DDR custom knife, our goal is for you, “our customer”, to feel like part of the DDR family.
Your custom knife vision is our mission. You can expect the best because that is what we will deliver.
The Venturi Butterfly Knife is the one of the world's first sandwich style precision butterfly knives that has radiused handle tops like the original style Butterfly knives from the past. The new V8 Venturi has undergone many handle design enhancements so that when you close your eyes you will think you are flipping a traditional Filipino butterfly knife. The speed and balance are spot on. We have taken the sought after feel of the old school knife and added modern advancements that make it last a lifetime. One of the biggest long term problems with Bali Pivots is the pivot coming loose. This butterfly knife sports our new pivot system is called the NO loc-Tite Adjustable Pivot THE NLT Pivot" for short. This system allows you to adjust the pivot screw to your personal swing feel and then lock it in place for good. You can get your new V8 with either the Maxx Glide Pivot Bearing System© (ball bearing pivots) or Washers. Pivot wear is now a problem that you do not have to worry about. Our pivots are guaranteed for life. If you like benchmade butterfly knives, the Venturi is said to be the next evolution. The titanium or stainless steel handles on our Balisong make the Venturi V8 one of the best Balisongs on the market today. The V8 is known for maintaining excellent balance at roll points for that butterfly trick you have been working on. All of our dagger style blades sport a false edge on top which allows you to swing without getting cut. For those who like a heavier butterfly knife, our stainless version (like the BM42), is the pinnacle of stainless steel balis.
