The Cold Steel 24PG Grivory Handle Paradox with a 4-inch blade is the more affordable version of the Paradox. With the exception of the handle slabs, this Cold Steel knife it is made with the same materials and attention to detail, and offers the same tremendous strength, sharpness, and cutting power of its more expensive counterpart.
With this Paradox, Cold Steel has produced a completely legal version of the butterfly knife. This Cold Steel Balisong is designed from the ground up to specifically mimic a traditional Balisong or Butterfly knife in every respect but one - it can't be opened with one hand! That's right, the Cold Steel Grivory Paradox is not a switchblade, gravity knife, or assisted opener and can't be opened without the use of both hands. So, while it looks and feels like a classic Butterfly knife, it isn't. It's a legal Balisong! The Cold Steel Paradox's twin handles feature two integral springs that are similar to a conventional slip joint folder. They are designed to rotate 180 degrees around the blade's unique split tang and use strong opposing spring tension to lock the blade open or hold it firmly closed. Don't worry about it taking two hands to get it into action, since once it's opened it will never close inadvertently. Plus, its locking mechanism is impervious to spine whack and the most violent stresses and shocks imaginable.
Every detail of the 24PG Grivory Paradox is a testament to Cold Steel's renowned craftsmanship. The leaf shaped blade is hollow ground from imported Japanese AUS 8A Stainless and, due to the latest advances in heat treatment, it offers a thin, ultra keen edge that lasts.
