Bali-Song, Inc.
The Bali-Song, Inc. custom balisong company was in operation from the middle of 1979 until June of 2000. It operated independently at first, then under Pacific Cutlery Co. (1983-1987), and later Benchmade Knife Co (1988-2000). Bali-Song production was halted between 1997 and 1999. Although Vic Anselmo was the first to grind a few prototype blades in 1979, famous knifemaker Jody Samson ground all of the custom blade profiles from mid-1979 to the middle of 1987, after which Eric got involved. The Bali-Song, Inc. balis are remembered for their superior craftsmanship, classic and innovative designs, wide variety of custom options, and the insane hollow-grinding talent of the late Mr. Samson, Rest in Peace.
