    So I'm sitting here cleaning my Alpha Beast giving it a good once over thinking, damn this thing is getting beat up. Never thought I would Abuse an expensive Knife.

    I flip it pretty much every where. Over concrete and rocked drive ways, sand, Hardwood floors:ropeman: Ive used it to spit wood, cut food, I think I've even thrown it at a tree a few times. for the money it sure does take an ass woopin.

    I Beat my Beast, Do you? Or do you only flip over a soft angle like surface.
    Do you have one Beater and one you keep pristine?

    Lets hear it. It doesn't even have to be an Alpha Beast.
    Do you Beat the crap out of your knives or do you baby them?
    What extent would you go with an expensive knife if that was your EDC for the day? Would you pry out a staple with your Marlow, do you shave with a Balibalistic:devilzeek:ross:?


    Here is my Beater

    I carry / use / abuse a BM42 and a ZT0560 everyday. Whether or not those are "expensive" depends upon who you ask, I suppose.
    I can tell you one thing for certain, they can take some abuse.

    When I first got the midtech AB by Matt Cook I told myself I was
    going to baby it since it was the first time I actually held the BRS
    vision and goal of building our own knife. I think about 5 minutes
    later I was in Loosey's garage and I dropped it on the tip. And that
    was that. Beat the piss out of it ever since. Even did rail grinds
    with it like the thing is a skateboard.

    Then I got the PAB. And the same thought went through my head.
    And that got dropped. I think in the garage again. Now I kinda use
    it as a barometer for how far the AB can be pushed.

    It's held up remarkably well. Damn this is starting to sound like an
    add. Ron will flag me soon for not being a super-duper-platinum
    gold-plated-with-diamond-inserts member soon.

    Anyways the short of it is yes I beat the piss out of my beasts.

    i tried babying. only flipped over soft floors and whatnot. tried flipping over something hard and the first time i dropped it it bent the tip forward. so from that point i've just been fuck it. best decision i could have made.

    The AB is made to take the abuse. i wouldn't say purposely beat it but it's definitely not a baby.

    I saw this post and didn't respond right away because I wanted to refrain from making a "beating my beast" reply

    :beavis:

    But I have a 51, b200, and one that I won't talk about because you all will say "what the fuck man" but I'm going to send it away to be babied in a few months :ropeman:

    My AB is still in pretty good condition. I beat the fuck out of my Tach 2.

    For a second I thought you were saying you beat your girlfriend too. :bwah:

    I guess I am a bitch

    I use the Beast over my old leather chair pretty much all my balis except the Benchmade 62 its heavy its tough I abuse it a lot but still looks brand new. So I guess I'm not into it getting beat up I do try some hard flipps and it bangs of my table when I mess up. So I guess that's the only time the Beast or any other balis except the 62 gets beat up. I was planning on getting another AB to beat up and put through hell because it definetly can take the beating. But well see.

    My 1.0 looks kinda rough. I never flip over bare concrete though (and certainly never over hardwood :devilzeek). The 2.0 is still new.
