51 is the standard.

    Imo the 51 is a good knife to get into the hobby with, but not the best at anything.

    I learned on a 51 and actually like how light they are, but it's sort of a niche thing and isn't well suited to serious flipping.

    D2 is also kind of garbo so it's not the best from a utility perspective either.

    The standard being its benchmade. Its affordable. It's available always. It is well made. Doesn't need much maintenance and if you are willing to put in the work is an excellent flipper. No mods needed.

    So, I just got my BRS Barebones, and I have to say, it slays the 51. Better pivots, smoother action, and a little more weight to keep the handles swinging. I just wish I wasn’t so scared of that nasty sharp blade. Anyway, it’s way better. Sorry, bro.

    Knocking the edge off. Everytime I see a sell post it seems like it says needs to be sharpened.

    Got it backwards Holmes. BRS AB is the standard. The 51 is entry level.

    Unavailable for new flippers almost always. 1 and a half times price to buy and heavy finger guillotine as a trainer. No wonder everyone buying trainers.

    Really? I find D2 to be excellent for utility. Keeps a hell of an edge for a long time and the blade doesn't scratch up as easy as something like s30v. If you say its garbo because it may corrode easier than other steels, just wipe it occasionally with an oil cloth once in a while and you will be fine.
