  1. Clément

    A nice finish on this knife and the zen-pins look very solid. It’s also razor sharp right out of the box!

  2. Brett Colella

    After a long wait (29 days from Russia to Denver, Colorado, USA and not because of the maker, the fault is with the Russian post office) I have to say I love this knife! Arguably my favorite blade shape/style ive ever seen. Great materials and fit/finish with an extremely reasonable price. Only a few downsides – no pocket clip (but then again, where would they put it?) And no spring latch. Besides that, I absolutely love this knife. 9/10

    Textured titanium handles, hollow grind, and brass washers/bushings. This balisong is razor sharp, has a good weight, solid build with a thick blade. It’s what you hope for in a balisong. This Russian made tool is thirsty for blood, be flipping careful.

    I waited 14 days to get my Demon from Russia to Wisconsin. The knife is very well built and smooth to flip. It came razor sharp out of the box and cuts beautifully. Very tight handle lockup in both open and closed positions. Bottom line is, You can’t go wrong buying Atropos knives.

    Strong contender on being my EDC over my Alpha Beast.. I honestly don’t know where to begin..
    What I like:
    – Comes incredibly sharp, like razer sharp.
    – Beautiful construction, nice finish on handles and the blade is a perfect grind.
    – Thicc blade, but well balanced
    – Practically flips itself.

    All in all this balisong was clearly made by someone who takes knife making very seriously… a legit work of art that can and probably will lop off a finger.

    The Atropos Demon (Zen). This thing surpasses any balisong at this price range, the sweet blade style is loved by basically anyone & the edge is SHARP. This thing has no blade play & the materials used are very nice and aesthetic. This is a truly solid knife.

  7. Rob

    I love this knife! I got it in N690 stainless, and with a pocket clip. The pocket clip is nice, the blade shape and steel is amazing, and it feels amazing in the hand. It is a simple look, but I like it. It flips really well, too. It’s my new favorite folding knife, by far. Everything about this knife is just perfect.

    Awesome knife! Fit and finish is perfect, came super sharp. I thought it would be heavy but actually light and very flippable. Love the channeled handles, titanium looks really good once worn in. Only thing I don’t like is that there’s 3 different screws on the knife which makes it a little annoying to adjust sometimes. I opted for a pocket clip and it’s not much of a deep carry, handles stick out quite a bit, also wish they just put the logo on it instead of “ATROPOSKNIFE” in bold letters lol, but overall really good knife, worth way more than he’s selling it for.

    Very good knife. I had the 2017 version and now I bought a new one. There is a lot of quality progress.
    A perfect finish. Great sheath. I recommend.

  10. Tomo

    This is one nice massive knife. Channel titanium, zen pins, great blade shape with a hollow grind. Nicely built with very solid tolerances. Amazing customer service as well.

    I’ve been waiting on this one for a little while, and it’s definitely worth the wait. I went with the latchless zen-pin version of the Demon. Out of the box, this thing is shaving sharp, no tap, and a tiny bit of handle play. Balance point is right around the second holes. Channel titanium handle balisong for less than 250 bucks? You can’t beat that. Overall, I’m very impressed with the quality.
    TLDR: Buy one.

    I ordered the purple anodized latch less version for this knife. The ano came out very beautiful and the craftsmanship on the handles and blade itself is really good, it’s razor sharp. After flipping it for a little while, it’s definitely very smooth and the noise from the zen pins are very satisfying. There is no blade tap and very little handle play on the knife I received. Also not sure if it’s standard with every knife now, but mine came with a tumbled leather sheath without a belt clip, which is a good addition in my opinion and it’s also very nicely crafted. I normally don’t do reviews, but I would really recommend this knife if you’re on the fence.

    Absolutely INSANE knife. I got the sandblasted zen pin latchless n690 configuration; shipping from Russia to the U.S. took about 2 months, but it was SO worth it for this knife. The way it carries momentum is out of this world!! Atropos did such an incredible job with this thing.
