Top quality knife, very different flipping feel
Still getting used to this thing, im more accustomed to a flipping a BM42. The handle's size difference are making me have to re-brush up on basic moves. The momentum this knife builds up with spins is insane. And the blade is very sharp, cut my finger very deep first 10 min with it, and didn't even feel the blade go in. The $500 cost is deffinantly more towards the quality of the BM87 as a "Knife", not so much a "Flipper". Stick to a BRS if you're looking for a knife that's design is solely focused around Flipping, and you don't care enough about the titanium milled handles and S30v blade to pay the price difference (+$150-$200). I personally think it was worth the extra money.

Impressive Knife
First off, this thing is massive. I have a Model 67, and even tho it's just a bit bigger all around, and almost seems like twice the size, it's actually an ounce lighter. Blade came shave sharp. Beautiful finish to it, flip action is incredibly smooth, and no play in the handles whatsoever with the bearings.
