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 Build - Not Great Design
Received BRS Barebones knife today. The knife is solidly built with excellent blade that is razor sharp out of the box. As others have noted, there are sharp edges that will tear holes in your pocket; these can be fixed. My main concerns, though, cannot be fixed. These are design, not execution problems. There is no integral guard. The handles become quite narrow towards the open blade. Additionally, the slots in the handles are primarily parallel with the length if the handle, which do not provide grip to resist the hand sliding forward toward the open blade. The net effect of these design flaws is that this knife should not be used for self defense. If you do so, you will likely cut your hand. I will use the barebones to further develop my balisong manipulation skills. It is a cool knife, and should excel at simple cutting tasks. For self defense though, I will revert back to my Benchmade 42 Ti. The design is better thought out, and my grip is sure.

Feels Amazing
Before this, I only had a CCC balisong. The Barebones is amazing to flip and a great beater. The blade is of very nice quality with the added bonus of being extremely sharp and strong. I love the way the handles are shaped. 5/5, This knife is amazing, would recommend.
