Flipper/Amazing Tool
I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. I bought this knife because I wanted a quality flipper with a durable build. I bought this particular bali-song because of the quality of the steel used for the blade and its toughness. I did not realize the blade would be as big as it was but it is a great shape and design. Precision cutting is very easy. It has an extremely sharp point. I really enjoy the smooth as butter flip. I love the old school look. This is a knife I will pass down to my boy one day. This is not just a flipper or tool knife, its a legacy knife built to last forever. Its worth every cent. Thanks knifecenter.com for the stellar deals, fast shipping, and quality knife brands.

Superb workmanship and great flipper
Workmanship and quality are really outstanding. I don't think any pictures that I have seen do this knife justice. The hardware on my knife is bead blasted and looks the same color as the Ti handles. The magnetic latch works flawlessly. Absolutely no handle play or blade rub. Great flipper too!

Action packed sharp performance
This thing is scary sharp! Easily replaced every EDC I’ve got, cannot go anywhere without it! Feels sturdy like a tank, it’s taken quite a beating from being dropped and even landed on the tip, top still in tact! Still keeps an edge after cutting rug and cardboard.For flipping, I dunno where the hate comes from. I love flipping this thing. Reeeeally responsive, butter smooth, and that metallic ping! Like music to my ears. In my particular case, the latch isn’t the best. I work in a welding shop, there’s metal shavings everywhere from grinders and cutting torches. I regularly have to take out the latch and clean the metal dust from the magnets. Eventually I decided to just leave the latch off because some of the metal dust was getting on the blade. And wow. I already thought it flipped really well, it flips like a million dollar dream without the latch! Bottom line, it’s everything you’d ever want in a balisong in terms of flipping and EDC, especially if you prefer channel construction like I do. I wonder if they’ll introduce different blade shapes for it though. If you got the funds and/or on the fence about it, just go for it!
