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's battle-ready out of the box and has performance at the forefront of design!

Good Flipper
Flips really smoothly, the weight took a minute to get used to but after that it is definitely fun to flip. Came really sharp and gave me more than enough cuts but maybe thats just cause i'm a bad flipper.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Overall Quality
Sent me defective knife
Knife was excellent out of the box. Then after one week i started noticing the sex bolts coming undone on the handle. Never dropped it on anything but a mattress i practice over so i was surprised when stuff started coming apart left and right. Started tightening the bolts when i first noticed the thread retention issues. Ended up losing two small screws for the handle that held the latch. I'd tighten the bolts and within a few minutes of flipping they'd fall out. Contacted BRS - slow unclear customer service. Took two weeks to find out I'm going to have to send the knife to them for a couple of defective screws. Which may take up to 6 weeks not including shipping. Going to Uni in a month so I'm running out of time with it as it is.
