    My H.S. in North Torrance was more like 85% and most of that was 3rd generation Japanese.
    How come I never had an Asian girlfriend?
    Oh Yeah, cause I'm an idiot!:devilroll:

    Forgive me if this has been assessed, but what exactly is the difference between the Marfione Custom Prototype and the production Tach II? Is it just the Hollow Grind and Anodizing ,anyone have pics posted?

    Don't worry, nobody has asked this yet.

    The Marfione is a handground blade, I have not confirmed if the handle slabs and hardware have been worked over/created by hand though. I've questioned the "custom-ness" of Microtech Marfiones for a while not knowing the real answer.

    On their autos though, a friend told me that every component is custom handbuilt, so for that same price, I'd probably expect a full custom as well in the familiar shape of their customs, but who knows.

    Thanks Chris, I ment to say hand ground thanks for the straightening that out. I would hope its a very precise piece of Balisong at $439. More than the production knife! But to be honest (although not custom) I've had issues with a few of the last Microtech's I've owned..

    I've seen some variances in product quality over the years, but they still offer some solid products and deliver on time enough for me to consider them a higher end brand than others.

    The fact that Anthony puts his name on a knife means you can bitch at him and him only if you find anything astray, but if it says hand-ground only then yeah.. it's what it is.

    I think the fact that the handgrounds always come first is smart, I almost bought one just because I wanted to see the Tachyon II before everybody else!

    I paid for my order a couple days ago, should be here tomorrow I believe, Anna from BHQ was very nice to talk to and we handled my business very quickly. Thanks for the smooth sailing BHQ!

    I know that area.
    I did research while I was in college in Diamond Bar, Lanternman Developement Center? It use to be a military base.
    I think it was off the 57 in DB.

    And I went to UCI as well, graduated in '94.
    Still a lot of Asians huh?:bwah:

    While I never had an Asian girlfriend, I definitely had more "fun" among the Asian girls at UCI, than in H.S.
    Remember, the harder they study, the harder they "party", or something like that.:jdwink2:

    Hope you're having fun!

    Holy shit. I just got mine a little while ago. If you haven't got yourself a Tach 2 I highly suggest you do. Thanks Blade HQ for bringing this beauty back to life. Mine has barrel spacers and is numbered. It flips amazing.

    I had to oil mine but it feels great. It is by far, one of the best Balisongs out there. Especially at the price they're selling for. I may even buy a second. It bests a Benchmade by far. I don't have the issues people are noting on their knives.

    I was doing a chaplin and the knife flew off my finger and stabbed my leg. I just finished cleaning the wound and the knife. Ouch. I have a hard time believing the guy who said his was dull because...god damn this blade is sharp as hell.

    Received mine today. Did not think I would like it, but damn - this is one nice bali :manganr:

    I flips similar to my AA, which i prefer, but still may try block spacers if they become available. I still do wish for the old style Tachyon latch, and this one comes no where near the tip when the latch is between the handles.

    Already got stabbed by the needle tip and got another cut, good times.
