    Eh!?

    Anyone else confused?

    What gives? Are BRS not allowed to use a green ano on a production AB?

    Why are they going to need luck. That sounds like a threat.

    ***Weird.

    Because once upon a time an AB was anodized and that's just plan unfair if BRS does it now themselves! :unintroduced:
    Really not sure if I understand haha, but hey by the looks of things BRS should keep doing just fine especially after the green AB's sell out in about .2 seconds :bwah:

    I think he's alluding to the difficulty in achieving his signature shade of green.

    Hes right, there sure is only one electric toxic green prototype AB thats stamped, hand made by Matt.

    not a bunch of teal green ones about to hit the market.


    no luck required. no slight to the prototype owner.

    matts green is bulletproof, its not possible to copy it.

    the production AB is very different from the prototype, it would be glaringly obivious if someone tried to claim a 3.0 in teal as the Green Mother of All Alphabeasts...


    laughable in fact.

    Don't say it would work, but that why I understand from Matt's post.

    And damn Loosey we need to have the possibility to buy your product in France, not that we are a big market, but still. There is just one lucky guy who know someone with an US adress post wich achieve to buy one. BHQ still talking about some laws that didn't exist (never telling wich ones off course) to refuse to sell us balisongs :unintroduced:

    Alright it's about to get spicy up in here, yall might want to get a glass of milk.

    There is absolutely ZERO slight about selling a factory ano AB that is Green.

    The Alpha Bitch isn't even really a knife, it's an idea. The value of that balisong isn't due to it's rarity or lack of cloning, it's value is intrinsic. That's what makes that knife so special and frankly uncopyable. It's the sense of pride that Rick can extract from it every time he picks it up, a value that you must feel every time you see it - knowing that together with just a few guys you helped start something. Something bigger than a few slabs of Titanium and a hardened blade. That knife is the DNA or the nucleus of a movement. It is symbolic of the first step on an arduous path towards what we all know must have seemed insurmountable at times. And thanks to Rick and Raoul's enthusiasm combined with You and Ed and Larry's dedication and hard work...that movement is now a thriving BladeRunner Systems. No single one item can take anything away from that.

    Producing production green ABs or hell even reproducing midtech ABs replete with bark and 000 markings and all doesn't change that.

    Sorry for my rant.

    Good News !

    + 100 with Ranx !!!!!


    This is very good news LooseyFur and France the Balisong's legal!:thumbsup:

    The only reason I did not AB3.0 is that there is no delivery for France ...
    And unfortunately I have no GirlFriend in America:jdwink2:

    Love me some whole milk.

    Well said Ryanol. That really sums it up very nicely.
    I do not recall any statement or agreement between
    Rick/BRS that we would not or could not produce a
    green Alpha Beast. If Matt made a promise to never
    produce another green Alpha Beast then he has every
    right to do so.

    But as he states:

    This will always be true plus one '000' for Raoul that can never be replicated.

    I think it all boils down to respect and honor....Both of which go a long ways!

    It also boils down to being waaaaay off base... and discussing personal problems in private rather than on an open forum.
