Product Details

This Tachyon III Trainer features an Apocalyptic finished Elmax trainer blade for worry-free practice flipping. Its handles are made from lightweight aluminum with a black finish. Includes adjustment tool.

Released in 2012,  the Tachyon™ II was modeled after Microtech’s® original balisong knife, the Tachyon™ from 2000.  Re-engineered to perfection in 2015, the Tachyon™ III reflects the ideal evolution of Microtech’s® balisong line.  Handles are machined from solid billet and a redesigned silicon nitride race bearing system creates a flawless flipping mechanism.  The blade and overall lengths have been significantly lengthened, generating a new balance compared to its predecessor.  The Tachyon™ III also showcases the new spring-loaded pocket clip (patent pending)  that sits in a milled channel so it is flush to the handle when not in use.
