    I started getting sucked into following all these Instagram builders. I'm sort of shocked how many people are putting hundreds of dollars down for some of these guys that have made a CAD drawing and maybe some custom scales or other parts, but never built a balisong from the ground up before. I can get behind the new Kickstarter "money first" mentality for some things, but bali building isn't one of them. Am I just old and cranky?

    Naw... you're YOUNG and cranky. Old and cranky doesn't start until about 50-ish.

    You'll soon learn that the balisong world is chock full of morons and imbeciles. Stay away from them as best you can. :bwah:

    Edit: I mean the WORLD is full, but they seem to be extra concentrated in the bali community....

    :goodpost3:...BUTT don't forget that there's a large portion of these buyers who are only looking to re-sell for a profit.

    It’s absolute buffoonery the shit I see. Buying products that aren’t made and waiting years for them. I always think what if this person dies,do the consumers get a refund?
    I almost can’t blame the scalper scumbags because if these kids are willing to pay double for a piece that’s in production then fuck it.
