    evidence that prayers do get answered some times...good news for the end users...
    $30 over the 62 and no complains yet...well on our way....
    i am dead broke so i wont buy any, if i could i would buy atleast 10 of those, this knife will triple in value soon as Tony gang rape whats his name again....

    No brainer. I never thought the knife was worth $500? I've owned two previously. This price is plain and simple. It's worth it.

    Order sent. Thanks for the heads up.

    Greens to you.

    Interested in learning more about "improved specs".

    Like the price, hate the pre-order bullshit.

    I pre ordered they have longer handles than the original so it should be pretty sweet

    Epic!! So epic!

    Long Ti handles (longer than the 42!),
    pb washers,
    154CM blade
    MICROTECH...and a MICROTECH at only $260?? That's nearly half of what the FlyFathers are selling for.

    It sounds like someone over at microtech has been watching and listening because this is about everything a lot of us have been asking for (short of mass producing Alpha Beasts). This ought to be a big hit. I'm not saying it'll be an excellent flipper either, though it looks to be the most promising production balisong (flipping, fit and finish, materials, price) out of ANY of the major knife companies lately.

    Pre-ordered without a doubt.

    Dang if the handles have slightly more radiusing and are as long or longer than the 42, and it's made to the tolerances everyone raves about the original tachyon...sounds like a home run for sure.

    Lot of ifs, but it's exciting no doubt.

    If for nothing else - I like it cause it's a big shot across the bow of Kershaw, Spyderco and Benchmade.

    Yea I looked at it and once I saw the price I pounced.

    I am seriously going to have to up my flipping skills.

    Cannot wait for the Alpha Beast vs Tachyon 2 videos that I know are going to come!

    I'm sure that the Alpha Beast will probably still be the better flipper, but from just the specs, the T2 doesn't look too bad. And it's currently $110 cheaper so it's certainly more affordable and possibly easier to get then the Alphas. It's another balisong from a big company returning to the game, and it doesn't appear to be a let down to a lot of people like the 62 generally was....so good news indeed!

    They just kicked Benchmade in the nuts with this. Best Bali news I have heard in a long time. Thank you Microtech! :thumbsup:

    "Boasting revamped specs with the celebrated Microtech fit and finish, the Tachyon 2 will be sure to please the balisong flipper, collector and overall knife enthusiast."

    AWW YEA. A knife to unity the trinity once again.

    I had a good laugh out of this too. I meant that there wouldn't be a shortage. of them.

    Just submitted my preorder for a stonewashed blade... Pretty excited to compare the my tach to the new one! If it's longer and weighter than the original, it should make for a sweet knife all around.

    I've never handled a tachyon before. But from what I hears it's pretty good. I think I'll wait and see how some of the big flippers like it; then I might buy one off the secondary market if it's any good.

    Yeah I got to say the specs look very promising .. the handle cut outs mixed with length might end up with some very nice balance ... we will see .

    feeling the price .. :thumbsup:
