Simple. Sleek. Silent. Deadly.
An awesome knife to behold and to flip about! I got it exactly three days after I ordered it from here. It looks beautifully deadly, does NOT have PIVOT pins (tang pins?) In the center of the blade, which is great. Unlike my Bear & Sons B-ALBD-400-B Raindrops, this knife pivots off of the pins in the handle. It is an EDC, but I like to flip it and freestyle. One has to be careful because these can be a little trickier to master as they are different from other handle styles. It has smooth action, feels quite balanced, is deadly sharp and I will NOT FLIP it standing on concrete. I will be crushed if I break this one or bend the tip. Definitely worth the money. There is no paint that chips off, no extra zen/tang/pivot pins to waste time on---just the necessities that are beautifully executed and a flawless design that keeps you from replacing extra pins/panels/etc. Definitely a futuristic balisong!
