    Amongst a whole lot of other stuff I care for animals that would laugh at you then crunch up your bones like potato chips.

    My grandad gave me my first knife when I was 8 or so. Or was it my uncle? Collected this and that for years as a kid growing up. Fixed blades and folders mostly. Lost my collection under shitty circumstances. Got back in to collecting a couple years ago. Then got a bali or two and started flipping and collecting them as well.

    Had balis from my teens first when i was 13, seriously flipping about 4 years. Collected for some time but sold off to change hobbies into firearms, Clay at balisong xtreme got me back into balis back when vids took hours to load...remember dial up! Found the Flipping Arena by accident looking for quality balis online and that lead me here

    Software testing for a gaming manufacturer.

    Every dude loves knives growing up... Didnt really get into flipping or collecting till around the time I registered though. I definitely wouldnt be spending this kinda money on knives, or even flipping really if I hadnt found this place while searching for a better balisong. I like it here.

    Ill be 29 on Sunday.

    It might also be cool to understand what brought folks to this interest, like

    - MA training
    - Knife collecting
    - TV/Movie/Media
    - Saw a friend flipping

    etc?

    For me, MA training

    1. Security guard at lumber yard.

    2. I remember having a bunch of cheap knives collected as a small child. I would ask my mom for butter knives when i was very small. As far as i can tell i came out addicted to knives. Once when i was in prison i made a weekend pass and learned how to use YouTube. There was the blasto featured. I watched bunches of bali videos that weekend. Until i was released i though about those videos. I also ran track a lot. Something about the balisong seeming faster and more nimble than a typical knife really stuck with me until i got out. At that time i dug out an old cheapo and got started. That was a lil over 3 years ago.

    3. Im 27.

    1. Corporate Finance Manager (hate the job but it pays for my addiction)

    2. Collecting and basic flipping for a few years, started to take flipping more seriously a few months ago because I didn't want to look stupid in the August Comp.

    3. Just turned 36 on October 2. Refer to the "How Old Are You" thread for details as to why I'm not sure if that's my real age.

    2. I got my first Bali back in February 2011 on a ski trip in CO. I got it because I've always been a knife enthusiast and I never owned a butterfly knife. I learned the basic horizontal opening and fell in love. A week or so after I got it it broke. I then fell away from flipping, until I was digging through my old knives and saw my old CCC. So I decided to look around to get a new cheapy to learn more tricks. This was back in December 2011. I didn't get my next Bali until February 2012. So I've been flipping for about 9 months.

    So let me get this right. When I listed a Bali sale and it stated buyer must be at least 18 years of age. You made a buy anyway .:ropeman:

    I'll keep in mind you can't buy anything I sell for at least a year and a month. :devilfinger: :bwah:
