    Obviously the arc angel and benchmade 42. Others I want are the kimuras, spyderco spider fly and small fly and Mtech twists.

    I would like to see more Bradley balisongs, but the Kimura was too heavy and short for me to really want it back. That being said a K5 was my first good balisong so I do have some sentimental attachment to them.

    I do not particularly want the 42 back, BUT I do want a channel style titanium handled balisong for under 400 dollars. I have not flipped a rep or AB yet though, so that may change once I get those in my hands.

    Anybody know if Roton USA is still producing balis? It is listed on their website but I clicked the learn more link and it is broken. I always thought the Roton balisongs were very nice looking knives. I also loved the Protech Flyfather, especially the JD themed one!

    I can't believe people used to compare Mtech Twists to kimuras. Was a $25 dollar knife compared to a $90 dollar knife. Nowadays there is nothing below or sub $100. Maxace DMG was in that budget and a production knife but made in such limited quantity that it's discontinued with the others. I wish I could buy two Mtech twist. One as a user.

    Are all the Bear OPS knives bad? I did have a B200 once upon a time that I traded it because I wasn't sure how the G10 would hold up in the tang pin area, but it seemed like a fine knife otherwise. I did recently find MTech twists for sale on DHGate, not sure if they are legit Mtechs though.

    I have near heard good things from bear OPS. Always negative things. Those Mtech twists on Dhgate are CCC clones. Because it's such a cheap knife I never even see then on the secondary market. Knifezoid's review.

    The new Ringed Gargoyle is an improved version of the original.
    And more of a hybrid of the original Goblin & Ring Fighter.
    Design of the RF but full thickness Ti handles and IKBS of the OG Goblin :thumbsup:

    I have a 42 and an 87 so I don’t long for a 4x except a 46 spear point. 66 spear point?
    I miss my SzaboFly... why did I sell?

    Gen 1 MT Tachyon. The II's were sorta ugly (except the tanto version), and the III's definitely didn't do anything for the design.

    Better yet I'd rather see someone else make a high quality knock-off of the gen 1.
