I have been a huge Bali enthusiast until the past year but I had lightly flipped them and bought a few cheepos before. I don't know how I would say my flipping is, I'm definitely don't consider a truly advandced flipper but I can do just about everything pritty smoothly. I have begun to lay down that green stuff lately and invest in some nice knives. It's small but its a start... I currently have a Bradley kimura(clip point), benchmades model 41mc, 42, 51, and 67, MTach II, an exhiled cutlery TR, which imo isn't a bad investment for a solid trainer, and I'm on the p/o List for an alpha beast. And that's about hopefully it will continue to grow and any suggestions for good flips under or around $500 would be great. And here's the complete Greenhorn JD questions haha, does JDBA have compititions, and what's with the numbered members?
