Basilisk Spacer Options

    Greetings Devils,

    I'd like to inquire regarding spacer replacement options for the Ti Basilisk R. In my novice experience I've found the AB to have a more neutral blade handle bias compared to the Ti Bas R. The Hom seems to be more handle heavy. The balance point on the AB is at the chevrons which is closer to the pivots than the Hom balance point. The first trick this seemed to affect is a simple fan. It's easy to twist the handle and get about 4 rotations from the AB but the Hom seems to work against itself. However when when trying to sustain a (fancy?) fan the Hom can keep going unlike the AB.

    I've seen G10 spacers for the Bas R in orange and black as well as possibly rare barrel spacers. I've seen the barrel spacers once and haven't found them again online.

    It's clear that different weight biases will favor different tricks but I'd like for find out what y'all know about the topic and sources especially for the barrel spacers.

    The stock Bas-R *IS* handle heavy. Those SS spacers are beastly. If you're looking for more rotations on a single-push fan, I would recommend G10 or CF spacers. I have CF spacers from hammerdesigns, and they're awesome. And he's awesome. Follow him on IG if you don't already. :D

    Kuski made those barrels. His list opens occasionally when he does batches of them. He is also on instagram as @kuski_craft

    There was also a gentleman on etsy doing g10 basilisk spacers. 45acpmike, and hammer designs on instagram also make spacers.

    @Joker188 fwiw, I always loved the Bas but thought the weight was a little weird too. I've done a little experimenting with spacers from hammerdesigns (IG) I weighed individual spacers (so 2x for weight of knife) and

    Stock Standard Length SS: 6.9g
    Full Length Ti: 5.8g
    Standard Length Ti: 3.7g
    Full Length Carbon Ffiber: 2.3g

    I haven't tried the Standard Length Ti b/c I just got those and the Full Length Ti... so far I'm really digging the Full Length Ti, CF was a little too light for me, and SS are too heavy. I prefer use a paracord latch, but I have a feeling weight wise I'm gonna like Full Ti more than Standard Ti and probably stick with them.

    Full Length Ti Spacers are great on the Specter too, again Standard SS was too heavy and Standard Ti were too light.

    buy one with ti spacers and a spare set of cf spacers tomorrow.

    quote from hom's instagram:

    The Titanium Basilisk-R is being released at Blade HQ on Tuesday 1/28 at 10AM MDT. It’s a sprint run so be on top of it! The original satin finish will be offered with CF or Ti spacers and the rugged stonewashed version with two tone blade will be offered with stainless spacers for slightly cheaper. Spacer kits in CF will be available as well (and Ti shortly after).

    i went from ss spacers to ti barrels in my tibasr, not sure if that's about the same as cf spacers or not, but seems a touch too light for me. am looking forward to getting a ti spacer version if i'm quick enough.

    I like the gen 1. It should have the same options as the gen 2 but I told him it has good flip so f it. It's a great knife. You just have to have guts and skill. He was super cool to me.
