    1) I love Vietnamese coffee. :caffeine:

    2) Don't air your laundry in public - makers and buyers alike. :badidea::laundry:

    3) 29s are some of the most bad-ass balisongs known to man.

    Those CF handles are absolutely beautiful knives to me.......someday I will have one. I sure do like my PAB though for right now.

    The deluxe skeleton models have two small holes between the large holes......think 4X series from BM.

    Slightchance. It can be acrylic tortoise if you dont mind and its better on our little reptile doods that way for the same price as the insert price.

    I actually had no idea what deluxe skeleton was until now. Thanks for clearing that up Brandon.

    I love the deluxe skeleton look but why would anybody get that for a custom? The last thing I want my custom to look like is a BM4x series bali. But that's just MHO.

    I guess, it's the quality - the same reason you would get a Samson's skeletonized custom back in the day.

    EDIT: And I mean of course if you like the look of the skeletonized handles...

    Chris coincidently started doing these as a higher quality homage to the balisongs of that era. It kind of morphed into his own unique thing as he got into Filipino swords and knives.

    I think I want one with double birds eye burl maple inserts and a Gayang blade.

    I still owe myself a new CGK though before I buy anything else.

    That's because it is buddy. :jdwink2: But it is also a custom with deluxe skeletonizing. :thumbsup:

    Man, you could put two twigs on a Balibalistic blade and it'll still be gorgeous. Not a fair way to shoot down my opinion about the deluxe skeleton handles!!! LOL.

    skeletonized "holes" here, I thought the question was regarding "slots"

    Whoever said deluxe slots weren't available in Ti from 29 might wanna check their info. I've got one on the list for 5" gayang, Ti (deluxe slots) with CF inserts.

    And as for my reasoning behind the Deluxe slots on a custom,........simple,.........weight reduction.
    29 makes a pretty beefy channel style, so in an effort to keep the weight down on the 5" package I opted for slots. The slots seem to be the method for removing the most handle material. Couple that with the CF inserts and I'm hoping for a 5" channel somewhere around 6 oz. (maybe less). The only thing at this point i've been told Chris won't do, is slot the backsides of the handles (ala BM239). so, depending on the finished weight, i may have to have some extra work done to get the weight i'm after.

    I did, but I said it was at the time I asked Chris Olofson. He told me he was not offering deluxe in Ti at that time.
    Btw. I wanted deluxe skeletonized, because I like skleletonized and I already had two 29's with standard hole pattern, I wanted it slightly different.

    Here's one '29 Benchmade' for Anthony :bwah:
