    I got it quite some time back from GrommetsLeathercraft on Etsy for something like $25. He advertises them for benchmade 6x balis but if you email him he can make them larger.

    Google balisong leather sheath and there are quite a few options. There are some guys that will even custom make a sheath for you but those run about $70 plus shipping.

    I guess nobody wants the bowie. I actually like it.

    No, I think they have the same amount of each. Just looking at the design its obvious the 3.0 (original design) is the best looking...alt (or whatever the other blade style) is the second best looking...and that bowie is fugly.

    ***Definitely let us know what you think of your purchase...always good to hear a virgin's perspective

    I am very new to this. Probably not being smart about it either. I really like the bowie look. More than anything else. I grabbed a bowie and a standard. The standard looks cool but I think I'd take the bowie over that

    That CF case is either huge or the person holding it is 10 years old.

    Yeah. Pretty shocked tbh. As far as cases...I’m willing to bet that it’s just the standard that comes with the knives and the big one will he sold separately at some point.

    Received my order of the ALT blade today. The finish is darker than I imagined, which I like, this being my first BRS Alpha Beast. However once I opened the knife I noticed a brownish / red mark halfway up near the edge. Tried wiping off with the cloth, but that did nothing. I just emailed BRS so I'll see how they want to handle it.

    Also, the case is the same one for sale on their site currently, I think someone had mentioned that there might be a new case, but that does not appear to have been changed.

    Well, didn't get mine. Got an email on Monday saying that they messed up, and had an issue with their inventory management system apparently. I purchased a Standard blade AB, but was told that they didn’t have enough Standards and would offer a refund or send an Alt blade instead. I don't really want an Alt, and got the refund. Pretty bummed. Waiting on the credit to hit the bank...

    I'll check on mine when I get home tonight (tracking said it delivered yesterday but I haven't been home to pick it up) and update if there are any issues. Definitely have BRS fix the issue. For that much money it should be perfect.

    Sorry to hear man. Don't do anything stupid and buy one with the price marked up in the Voodoo.

    ***I've never had any issues with BRS

    BRS got back to me through email giving me the go ahead to try and remove it and that they would fix if necessary. I was able to get the mark out with some gun cleaner and a blue scotch brite pad after several scrubbings. Doesn't appear to have messed with the finish, but if the light hits just right you can see a little shadow left, but nothing I'm worried about as I'm sure it will be gone shortly with some use.

    I can definitely see / feel why these are regarded as one of the best. Smooth action and handles offer good grip.
