 ITEM DESCRIPTION


A “Tachyon” is a theoretical subatomic particle which moves faster than the speed of light. . .

 

It’s also one of the world’s finest, rarest, and most sought-after Bali-Song /Butterfly knives.

 

This rare example is in excellent condition. It has never been carried or sharpened. The latch has not been moved. The tension on the blade has never been adjusted.

 

 

                                                Featuring

 

• “Sandwich” handle construction – not cheap cast handle or u-channel construction

 

• Torx screw / Chicago screw construction throughout

 

• As precisely constructed as a fine Swiss watch

 

• Astonishing fit and finish – the precision of the construction of these knives exceeds even that of the highly regarded Benchmade series

 

No  blade play whatsoever when open and locked

 

Maybe  1 mm of play in the handles with the blade open and the handle unlatched – Compare this to any custom Bali-song you have!

 

No play or slop in the latch whatsoever. The latch locks the knife tightly open and closed – and yet it’s very easy to release when you want to

 

• Handles are Titanium – allowing for extreme strength but amazing lightness, making this the fastest Bali-Song I have ever handled

 

• Original Microtech Tachyon nylon sheath included

 

• Serial Number 1517 (First Tachyon sold was 0102.) Production date 09/2002.

 

Condition: I consider this knife to be in excellent condition. The only fault is some very light scratching on the Teflon coating on the blade from handling and “flipping” the knife occassionally. For this reason, I cannot honestly call it “mint.” 

         There is no wear or scratching to the handle.

         There is no wear at the latch.

         This knife has never been carried, sharpened, or used to cut. It has been in my airtight collection since I purchased it in 2002, and has only been removed to show.

         The original Microtech sheath is included, but no box or papers.

 

I have not been able to find a single Tachyon currently for sale anywhere on the Web, nor at any of the recent gun and knife shows in my area.  If you can find one,   original, “Mint” condition Tachyons appear to be selling around $425 – 550 now.

Because of the slight scratches to the blade, and the fact that this knife does not come with the original box and papers, I am asking significantly less than the cost of a perfect specimen. . .

 

Bidding starts at only $425!

Q You never told me you had the Tachyon, that is sweet. Looks like you have some other stuff I might want as well.  posted by: roadsideimports  10/9/2011 2:26:28 PM
