BRSBB: Barebones
Bladerunners Systems

**Available to ship within the US only.**

Introducing the Barebones! The foundation of the Barebones' design consisted of two objectives; to make a balisong that everyone could afford and to maintain the high-performance level that BRS Knives are known for. Well, goal accomplished in the Barebones. It's a sleek design that takes similar form and dimensions as its predecessors (Alpha Beast and Replicant), but fuses its own unique attributes to make it a one of a kind flipper. 

The Barebones features all-stainless-steel framed handles that are skeletonized to maintain optimum balance and reduce weight. You will find that Barebones is a very neutral handling balisong. It can be flipped fast or slow and really can adapt to a variety of manipulation styles. Coupled with extended handle dimensions the weight is very well distributed.

Blade steel is the ever robust 154CM to provide a lifetime of cutting performance and reliability. Hardware is all stainless steel including the latch. 

Whether you are just starting out as a flipper and new to balisongs or a long-time veteran of the sport, you will find the Barebones to be an optimum performer. Like all BRS products, it battle-ready out of the box and has performance at the forefront of design!

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Overall Quality, None
Great knife-while the hardware lasted.
First I want to say that I have an A.B. and it was my main flipper....I have always liked brs and appreciated what they offer....When I received this knife I really liked it,I was flipping it all the time instead of my alpha beast like usual.... the way you will do with a new balisong-.(you flippers know what I mean)I did not abuse it in any way,and the few times I dropped it were on a rug,not on concrete or anything...for some reason my handles have popped apart at the bottom on the latch side-(bite handle) despite me loctiteing them as expected...Its almost like the barrel spacers are stripped where the screws are supposed to thread in. They will not screw in to the spacers,they will not engage the threading or something....I can not figure it out.I am very disappointed because I was really starting to like the feel of this knife...They said they would fix it but I just feel like it should not have happened in the first damn place....bummer...I gave it a 3 because It was so good while it lasted.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality, Weight
Great knife for flipping. wish it had a pocket clip and crowned spine and much more refined and rounded zen pin stop, but that just nit picking. the knife I got however did come with a scratch about a 1/4 inch long on the safe handle and a nick in one of the cutouts. Don't expect the level of refinement the AB and Rep come with all that aside the knife flips very well, I still think the Replicant and Alpha B will always be great bargains for the money.
