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!

Cons: None
Wickedly Sharp
It came wickedly sharp, to the point that I would caution against using it as your main flipper unless you're willing to pay the price for a miss catch or are the only person who has never dropped their blade while practicing. Overall, I was extremely happy with this. It's opens smoothly and consistently without error, it's nearly perfectly balanced, and comfortable while manipulating it around your hand, especially for finger rolls. Only slight gripe I have is that the latch is a little bit shorter than other comparable butterfly knives, which makes its latch based opening tricks feel a little off than how I'm used them feeling.
