Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Material, Handle Material, Weight
Fantastic knife, but might not be ideal for flipping.
Don't get me wrong, it's a really nice knife. The main issue is the handle, it's way too light and compared to the blade throws the whole knife off balance quite a bit. The trainer blade suffers the same issue as the live blade, and is way too weighty for certain maneuvers to be done reliably. The actual "flipping" action is really nice and smooth, and I like how easy it is to use just one hand to pop the lock off. I found the handle to be very comfortable to hold. I'm not a big pocket clip guy, so I haven't experimented with that, but it seemed a little crooked. I'm not gonna tinker with it unless something goes wrong, but I really doubt it will. You could probably work through the balance issues, but if you went back to a well-balanced knife you'd have to re-adjust to that because of the compensation.. I dunno, I just really wish the handle weighed similar to the blade, or the blade was a little lighter, or any compromise between the two. In summary, it's a beauty of a knife pretty much from the blade to the lock, I just wish it was a little better balanced so it was a bit more suited for flipping. But for the price really, I wouldn't want to risk dropping it too much or scuffing it up, it's a really nice trophy piece worth keeping in good condition, and as a Back to the Future fan, I was pretty instantly drawn to the name. The serial number on the blade is a very nice addition and reaffirms that it's a high quality QM product. I mean.. If you're here, you considered it, and unless you have something better in mind, go for it.

Nice Bali
This is the coolest Bali I have now. I've never seen a TANTO design like this one before so I had to have it. Thanks Knifecenter for a good price.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Pocket Clip
Nice knife but...
Great knife, a little pricey, a little disappointed being made in USA, I received the knife with the pocket clip loose, both screws were loose, tightened the top screw ok but just started to turn the bottom screw and the screw head broke off (sigh) not enough to disappoint with the entire knife but at the cost of this knife it should have been checked before leaving quality control.
