    Make one of each, then pass 'em around.

    I like the looks of the very top bali, (1st pic) the best. Others have already pointed out the concerns on the design though. You definitely want to make the blade a little narrower than it is in the renders. Good luck! Hope to see something tangible come from this. I like the blade shape, and the aesthetics of the handle design.

    Here are some of my thoughts and personal preference...

    1. The handles are too "rectangular"

    2. Looks blade heavy

    Overall, very impressive.

    ***Hopefully you'll have a finished piece to pass around:thumbsup:

    I like the grinds, especially the second one. Would make a nice show piece. Id love to see what kinda ridiculous nightmare tanto grind you could come up with.

    great designs

    all the technical design issues could be hashed out in the shop on a prototype. Of course... unless you're just going straight to having a machine spit these out.
    Nightmare grind is a more specific stryder-centric term for a compound grind.

    Balisong practice

    Remember this design?

    I've decided to do some practice before grinding it (grinds, beveling, rounding etc.). I've took piece of carbon steel and now it looks like this:

    I really dig the grind, word to the wise though...if your marketing toward flipping lose the gimping on the spine and keep it smooth or better yet crowned.
