    It's an admirable effort for a first attempt. Something between a kimura and mayhem, plus the price isn't terrible. Also, he put the sharpening notch in the right place this time.

    It's great to see other companies stepping up to the plate to offer something for us flippers but I think they need more input from flippers on what makes a good balisong. The handles look to thin and short.

    Pretty sure they don't care about that lol.

    Their fan base is big enough that they'll get sold.

    It's a nice enough looking knife. Doesn't do much for me but I'm sure it has a market.

    I'll keep saving for a BRS Alpha Beast with thick titanium handles. Looks cool, just not my style.

    Nice looking knife, i think it would be a good EDC, but the handles seem a bit short and skinny for a flipper. Reminds me of the Kimura 1.
