    As I said, I interact with customers daily and over the years have even become close friends with a few. Anyone that has done business with us (for the most part) has nothing but great things to say about our products, customer service etc.. And of course many over the years that have not liked certain designs, features, etc. That have voiced their opinion on that in a respectful and helpful way which we appreciate and have taken the information on a few occasions and used it.

    My point was the "way" it is done. And please understand that while the majority of our feedback is positive, there is always the internet/forum asshole that has to say some sort of disrespectful, rude comment, probably to make up for all the wedgies they got in high school. So having to also deal with "that" inevitable annoying dipshit is the reason my comment of "This is why I don't waste my time interacting on forums came from.. I AM NOT TALKING TO THE MAJORITY OF YOU! Just the ones that will drive me fucking crazy to have to hear after working my fucking ass off still to this day to build this company!

    Have you handled an alpha beast or a replicant? I think the things that make a good flipper ( balance, ergonomics, grip, etc) is what makes a good knife for the martial artists or tactically minded people. Something with no snags, feels good in the hand and the ability to manipulate the blade without thought are, at least to my understanding, the foundation of a good knife behind the blade of course.

    This is all good feedback, you would be remiss to ignore it. Wisdom is wisdom, and thus valuable regardless of the source

    We had to put something up, and once the actual production version is done we will get into more detailed content on function and application and practical benefits that are often overlooked about a balisong.. Again what is shown is a Prototype!

    People have personalities, forums have personalities. Disrespect is often a point of perspective.

    I'm sorry you got so upset I stated that Balisong is fugly, and pointed out that others thought the same.

    But it is no matter how you shake a stick at it, I'm entitled to an opinion and mine is there is nothing aesthetically appealing about it.

    Would it have been nicer to say your ass looks fat in that dress ? :ross::ross:

    The combination of wide blade and skinny handles is out of proportion.

    You state it's a proto, you also stated you were not going to change much, so one can only figure it's going to look about the same (shrug).

    Now for this 1% you plan to hit considering the other 99% of balisongs are out there for tricks.

    Not so much , this alone states perhaps you are underestimating what product is out there, or think yours will be a game changer. We have heard that before.

    Guessing with your company name you are going for the tactical play on things ? If so I'll take mine in tacti-black with serrations please. :ross:

    But I digress , unless the thing gives me a blow job, it's going to do what any other balisong will do that are out there at the end of a day.

    Some better then others but they all cut and if you have skills enough a brick can be flipped.

    And Owlman, thanks for watching me, but it's creepy :bwah:

    I think the blade shape looks great. I agree with everyone else that the tang are and horns are too big. I also agree that the blade looks too wide to fit in those handles well. The handles also leave a bit to be desired. They're boring. And if they need metal liners if they don't have them already.

    I guess you'll find out after you put them out there (C.Edge), I've been on my own for almost 10 years, negative or positive feedback is just feedback, it all teaches you to be a better business man, personal involvement is not a thing one should allowed in business every person is a possible customer and without costumers you got no business.
    All the best.

    But...

    but...

    what about those KICKER PIN'S !?!

    ... they kinda small!! :bwah:

    But seriously, that tang pin looks to be a Pop Rivet that was just slid into the hole for the photo shot, am I correct CE ?

    I think in all, its a pretty mean looking Bali, I like it!. Im with Wyldstyl on this one, a few tweaks and you have a good foundation to build on!

    What weight are you shooting for? Will you be using bushings on this one? What size is the blade stock?

    I'm not reading through all of these lumps of texts so I don't know if this has been said yet, but...

    If you make a knife with chopstick handles and a paddle as a blade it will not function properly. If it follows Darrel's setup the blade will be flush with the handles and cut you when closed.

    In a bali, making it flippable will get you more customers than making it practical, mainly because it is illegal to carry in a lot of regions, thus making practicality close to useless.

    Of course there are collectors too, but I don't think a fugly production bali will be of their concern :thumbsup:
