Fun flipper
This is a fun knife we can't stop flipping it and for my daughters it's lite and stealthy to carry for personal protection and to my wife dismay I tested it on a pork roast to see if it would work like the video and it did I've got boath Fox's and bath went into the pork roast easily . they both made nice slices in the meat .my wife was not as happy as I was she said it was dinner. But the knife for a plastic knife worked well. I f get one you will enjoy it

Needs a different blade shape
Too light to be a good flipper. But it's plastic and can work. The straight tanto edge isn't impressive. This knife needs a spear point like the arc angel. Half of the top edge flat for flipping. The other half on top, and the bottom edge serrated.

Nice form, but can't stick the landing
The Tanto version of the FGX Balisong is somewhat of a disappointment after the innovative awesomeness of the double edged serrated model. While that model was designed primarily as a under the radar weapon, the Tanto version, while still usable as such in a pinch, it seems more primarily a practice trainer, as, the edge is fairly soft, and the tip blunted after only a few punches through the Knife Center Shipping Box. It actually didn't seem to be made of the same quality of Griv-Ex as it's double edged cousin. Like virgin vs. recycled plastic. Perhaps the extrusion process / pressure used to form the serrated edges, is somehow higher or different than that used for making a basic knife blank , but, whatever the case, the difference is both visible and, tactile. Perhaps Lynn Thompson would consider making a SERRATED Tanto, and incorporating the multi-angled tip from the double edged sibling. But, if you're just looking for a large trainer, this might just be the ticket for you.

Consider the Lethality of Curiosity
I ordered this because it was cheap. The knife didn't disappoint. It really is. It is klunky and rattly. I learned nothing from this particular knife except that I would have preferred to have my money. For what I paid for it, I am not at all unhappy. I may give it to my grandson if I can persuade my daughter that it would be a good idea. Try not to have any expectations when you order this. You will not be let down. And who knows? You might even like it. Well, I am back to the CS sale items, looking for another knife to buy.Maybe I can get it paid for before the SpydieChef comes in and I am charge for that. (That will be a 5 star review. I can feel it in my hands.............or bones.)
