    Nice flipping LB!

    Is it true the serrated handle version costs more?

    I'm sure that we have all had worse ones out on the market. And at least these are flippable compared to those Flip Finz toys.

    I already bought a fgx cold steel item on accident once. I thought I was buying a dart and sheath and got a piece of plastic. I was very disappointed lol.

    It just seems very pointless.

    I'll let you know when mine comes in the mail. I suspect it is just not that sharp to cut you, but I am sure the jagged edges on both sides are not going to be comfortable. A little sandpaper will probably cure that.

    However, this is how I bet it actually goes... I receive it in the mail, flip it twice, ask myself why the hell did I just waste 15 buck on this thing, throw it in a drawer, and never think of it again.

    Ha! I just checked my mail after commenting above and there it was. Yes, it is not comfortable, I now have a couple of little punctures the back of my index and middle finger, and it is a pretty shitty flipper as one would expect. Oh well, I think someone will be getting a free gift with the next bali I decide to sell.

    Anyone who bitches about spending sub $20 on it is crazy. Even if it does suck. I've wasted more on bad food. Oooooff what a night on the toilet that was.

    Received mine today. It's just as you'd expect really.. it doesn't carry momentum well, the handle play is significant and the whole thing feels cheesy.
    I will say the latch is fine, it locks up tight when both open and closed. The handles swing freely and do not have a problem with sticking or dragging. The blade serrations are surprisingly sharp and I ended up with small perforations on my fingers after a ricochet. I cant imagine that any of these positives would last with a lot of use however. Novelty piece really. Still neat to have in the collection and hopefully this shows a demand for Coldsteel to make balisongs once again.

    I ordered one simply so I could have a TSA friendly balisong, though I don't recommend flipping in the airport :xxrotflma

    I'm on your thread. A double sided serrated edge knife is a joke. Maybe they are moving slowly towards retaking an interest in actual "cold steel" balisongs.
