College Student Getting Into Balisongs

    Hey everyone,

    I'm a new member from Raleigh, NC. I'm currently a sophomore in aerospace engineering at a university in Daytona Beach, Fl. I've always been interested in knives, as I was an avid hiker (completed about half of the Appalachian Trail, as well as many other locations) and knives were always an essential tool. Never had anything fancy for knives, just some Kershaws, Byrds, CRKTs, and currently a Spyderco Dragonfly that I've used as my EDC for a couple years now (I enjoy the size, weight, and simplicity of the Spyderco).

    My roommate has a small collection of knives for me to entertain myself with, but I'm most interested in his balisongs. He has a cheap Bear and Sons model, which isn't the best knife in the world but it's great for learning beginner moves with. He also has a Bradley Kimura that I enjoy (I wish they would go back into production). So far I've just learned the basic openings, index finger rollover to zen rollover combo, pi (from cutlerylover), Y2K rollover, etc.

    I'm looking into flipping, and I thought this community would be a good place to start.

    You must be at Embry Riddle. My brother goes there. He did a project with a group recently and they did a bali.
