    You guys hear about this?

    Doesn’t get a lot of attention but it’s a slick little alternative gent’s knife.

    “Little” being the key word there I imagine.

    Too little to flip

    Too little people spending money on them
    :bendibble:necropost:
    Nothing against the 32, I wouldn’t mind owning one, but I don’t need a second 51 that I can’t flip.
    So, not all that surprised or broken up over the news of its demise.

    Maybe this is a total noob statement,but I’m kinda surprised Benchmade still makes balisongs at all. Compared to their large contracts revenue from butterfly knives must be peanuts.

    My alternative to the BM32 would be a Mini Demon. It is slightly larger, has Ti channel handles and the blade is N690Co stainless.

    Silly question: do you make regular sized demons?

    First of all, I do not make these balisongs.....these are made by Atroposknife.....a person from Russia. He makes them in 3 sizes.

    Doesn't surprise me. How many people actually buy these? Seems like the vast majority of guys buying balis are looking for something thats good for flipping.

    I got those 2 mini demons for EDC.....and for the price, I say they are fine. I am asking Matt (a.k.a. pinoyknife) change the current tang pins for another sturdier and stronger ones

    Boo, the bm 32 is very underrated. I have been edcing a 32 for 2 years. It’s been an excellent knife.

    Its Kind of funny. I got a 32 a couple years back when I got the itch to buy a new Bali after coming across an old ccc I had. I couldn't really flip for shit back then so the 32 didn't get used much since being so small I had a hard time with it. Over the last year I've really gotten into flipping and purchased a dozen or so other knives. Needless to say, the wee one came out of hiding and I really like it, now that I have a better understanding of how flip. Its size makes some things more difficult but the challenge makes it that much more fun. It's not the best compared to a brs or whatever but its a great little knife.

    BRS should make a mini beast but not until they go full bore on regular alpha production.....
