    First impressions:
    The blade on this thing looks fucking wicked. That tip is way more scary looking in person than pics can tell. The g10 isn't as sharp edged as I thought it would be from what people were saying, but the ends of the Ti were very sharp and I already took a diamond file to them a little bit, looked like they would fuck up the latch end. The weight feels great, and the lockup is amazing. No slop. Way bigger than what I've flipped before though, so it will take me some getting used to. Very happy with it though, great job BRS.
    Will be anodizing her sometime this week ;)

    Wtf?!?!

    The little fucking time I have fucking had to flip my fucking Replicant, I have really fucking enjoyed it. I fucking love that it has so little fucking play in the fucking handles.

    Like fucking none whatsofuckingever, which is fucking nice!!! No fucking tweaking, or fucking dialing it fucking in, just straight fucking tightness straight out of the fucking box.

    I'd like to fucking thank fucking BRS, and fucking BladeHQ for bringing another fucking solid fucking flipper to the fucking market and fucking Bali community....especially at what I fucking feel is a great fucking price point.--So BRS/BladeHQ: Fucking thank fucking You!!!!

    (Just about fucking everything I fucking flip on a fucking regular basis has a fucking fucked up fucking tip.)

    Got mine Monday. I pretty much agree with what everyone else is saying. Still getting used to the thick square handles but the tolerances are amazing! Absolutely 0 play and no binding at all. It couldn't be tuned any better in that department. The balance is great too. I think it's slightly less towards the end of the handles then the pab but it handles great. If I can get used to the thick handles or get it modded I think I'll like it just as much as my pab but time will tell.
    Another winner BRS! Keep'em comin.:thumbsup:

    Edit: Only thing I'd really change is a ti latch and drop the spacers down like a 1/16" maybe so the dome latch pops out a little easier when bumping the handles together but for the price it's an awesome flipper.

    So does the Replicant feel a bit more heavy than a BM 4X to anyone else?

    I finally got mine yesterday and I am absolutely blown away. The bushing system is amazing, it feels great and looks even better. I for one really like the larger handles but that being said, I haven't had the chance yet to do any more advanced type flipping so we'll see. One interesting thing is that because the blade is so big and the knife is so long it kind of psychs me out into thinking that it should be heavier than it is. This isn't a complaint, just something I'll have to get used to. But all in all I have to say that BRS has raised the bar and set a new standard for what excellence means in a production level balisong. Bravo!

    I believe that the rep has about .8-.6 oz on the 4x, and it does feel a bit heavier being a much larger knife.

    Been flipping my new rep for 3 days now, and the thick handles do take some getting used to, but when you do, it's amazing. Makes my 4x's feel like pencils. Like most, I'm in love with the balance, and length, and even though it has the floppy latch, I don't find it to be too,
    too annoying. If it does catch the safe handle when opening, it seems to ricochet the way they intended it to. I would have liked a spring, but it's a small complaint on such an awesome flipper.
