Blade HQ Exclusive: Microtech Brass Tachyon II Tanto Balisong

You already know Blade HQ is the only place you can get the Tachyon II.

But, now there’s something else at Blade HQ that no one else can give you, and that’s the new Microtech Brass Tachyon II Tanto.


This Brass Tachyon is a Blade HQ exclusive, and it is limited in number. There are some left, but not many. If you think you might want one, I suggest getting one now because if you wait too long, you’ll miss your chance.

The Tachyon II is one of Blade HQ’s most popular balisongs, and this exclusive is no exception. It has many of the same specifications as the original Tachyon II such as overall length, blade length, thickness, blade steel, etc., but as you might expect, the weight is a little different. The titanium Tachyon II weighs 5.28 oz., while the brass version weighs 7.85 oz.—there’s a little bit of a difference there, yes?
