Flytanium Still Making 51 Scales?

    So I'm very new to the balisong scene. Just bought a new bm51 a few weeks ago and have been loving it.

    According to the internet, it seems like a set of the flytanium scales really makes this knife a gem but I cant seem to find them anywhere.

    I've checked their site quite a few times and they're always out of stock.

    Is this because they are bought up as fast as they are posted? Or have they stopped making them?

    Yea thanks for your input. I saw the ones on BladeHQ. Really just looking for the standard ones though.

    Flytanium's drops for the 51 are usually few and very far between - certainly not often enough to satisfy the demand! I've often wondered why they continue to devote their resources to producing scales for the most popular folders when their interests would be better served satisfying the demand for 51 scales, but that's for them to worry about. Anyway, your best bet is the secondary market, so you could post a WTB ad on JD, or keep your eyes peeled on social media. They usually come up for sale every now and then...Good luck!

    I was wondering the same exact thing. $135 a pop AND selling through blade HQ you would think they would be pumping those out.

    The EDC scales are MUCH better quality and fit/finish. Well worth the extra $$$. I also assume they'll hold their value well too.
