51 is the standard.

    Ryworx is ready to make a 51 knock off. It's starting. What's that term about the greatest form of flattery? Keep the weight down plain and simple.

    It's actually "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Not "Copying"....

    Butt*, there's a lot to be said about copying somebody else's work to make a quick buck too. :bwah:

    Yeah.. hes not actually copying anything.

    Ryworx said he wanted to make a lighter Bali and asked opinions on the BM51 and Squiddy (he lives in Japan and has never tried them).

    You'd have to be retarded to read into that, that hes going to make a "51 knock off".

    Yeah sure except he has pics of a 51 and a 32 next to his prototype looking awfully similar in the handle design.

    It's a nice knife. It's much nicer for flipping than the 62, and it's lighter and it's got the clip. For an EDC it's probably the winner.

    But the 62 has nicer fit and finish (polished blade on the 62), better basic blade shape (wee-hawk on 62 vs. spear point on 51), other blade variations readily available (bowie, tanto), and looks like the Ur balisong (going back to Pacific Cutlery days).

    It's better built. Maybe overbuilt. The first time you look down at a 51 and notice a screw missing ... you get the problem with the sandwich construction.

    Limiting yourself to Benchmade, it is probably the standard, but not in the way that the 42 was.

    I think the AlphaBeast gets more love from the initiated, and even the Replicant. Of course BRS knifes are a limited production affair, so it's sort of unfair to compare them with Benchmade's that are available all the time, everywhere.

    Yeah like you said he is from Japan so he has no experience with a 51. I am laughing.
