    the time before a launch...

    I'll watch a few old videos to remind me where we came from, flippers through and through.

    I'll spend a lot of time thinking about customers, and their experience and what we have done to insure its a good one.

    Ill call my dad, talk business, let his wisdom sink in.


    I'll hope this product is kicking off a few peoples journey into balisongs.

    I'll hug my sons and my girlfriend for putting up with the whole process, the grind, the job, the endless work Daddy has to do.

    Ill envision the unboxing, our customer doing that first trick or opening.

    I will be thankful, and grateful to the crew, the customers and the retailers for their continued faith in our vision and our support.

    Ill call Kz when the time comes for the drop.

    3,2,1 .... madness


    thanks everyone. just a few more hours.

    Will there be any options for mods on the barebones in the BRS custom shop?

    ^Had a small moment of panic until I scrolled down and read this follow-up :devilzeek

    FWIW, this will be the first bali I'm attempting to score directly from the drop. Hoping it will be a good early memory in a very long journey :helix:

    I completely agree. I also think it is over-hyped. Stainless steel is heavy and they claim to have it weighed down by making the knife thinner. Not for me. Not to mention that blade cut. But maybe it will be good to attract more casuals into the flipping community.

    If this knife is anything less than flipping grade, I'll be surprised.

    I'm not saying it will be flippable. I am gonna compare it to my AB and rep so i doubt it can live up to them. If it can then I will be happy. I think its good there is a high-quality Bali entering at the 51's price range now.

    None planned at this time, but you never know for the future...

    [​IMG]

    This drop is particularly special for us cause it really is the one -=BRS=-
    product that will allow us to fully branch out to flippers on all
    levels and all budgets. I know when the Alpha Beast and Replicant
    came out it was still a little out of reach for some people. Plus
    I always wanted BRS to be part of the discussion for a lower cost
    balisong for someone who is just starting out.

    I remember what the Kimura was for me. A cheap, high quality,
    balisong that I could enter the sport of flipping at a price that was
    welcoming. Had it not been for that who knows where I'd be? It
    was what sparked the whole balisong obsession.

    I would love for Barebones to be the beginning of many people's
    journey into flipping and be the stepping stone for them to advance
    to other products and skill levels.

    Thanks for all the support and look forward to tomorrow! :KZ: :thumbsup:

    Your poster boy is Canadian. Not that it's a bad thing since I'm also from maple syrup land and Nardath seems like a rad dude, but just sayin'. :devilwag:
