    Can't be any worse than the new "Bradley." Looks great though. Could be an instant hit like the DogBite was and sell out like crazy once word spreads.

    Does PVK offer a wishlist/newsletter email subscription to notify us the instant this thing drops I wonder.

    I don't think they're the prettiest looking Bali but they could turn out to be very decent performers.

    The price point is decent for a ti bali.

    I'm not liking the design much though. The handles are good but that blade lol. IMO it looks to fat and short in comparison to the long handles. The tagging on the blade is too much and I wonder about how annoying that tang area will be for flipping.

    Not so sure about this one. Looks like the blade shape would be great for EDC (as is the steel), the price is decent (so is the steel), and the design while not great isnt horrible (nor is the steel). It has potential, for his first balisong overall not bad.

    The balance will be the determining factor. As I have hinted above, I really like CTS XHP, never had it on a balisong I dont think though. I will deal with any steel as long as I enjoy carrying and flipping the fuker. A nice steel is just icing so to speak.

    If the handles are as skinny as the Brous b3, it's definitely going to be a turn off for me.

    If it was at a $150 price point I would say it was decent. But it's not.

    If it had a latch I would give it more love. But it doesn't.

    That blade just isn't sexy and the "used" look of is a turn off. I'm buying a new bali...I want it to look new.

    ***Nothing terrible...but nothing great either

    It looks like a Bradley that’s valued at 140. I won’t be buying one due to the elite I just got in the mail.

    A new blade shape tanto or dagger and I’d change my mind.

    Green went fast. Pink hung around and so did silver.

    Not sure.. but the amount of Bali design renders hes been pumping out it looks like he/they will be making more balis.

    Some of the render designs look a lot better than their first effort.

    Feels pretty good in the hand, the problem is I'm a terrible flipper so I'm not qualified to judge the performance.

    It's times better than new Kimura, but then again herpes is better than new Kimura.

    I think it's fairly priced for what it is, I feel like Barebones (similar price) is better in terms of performance, but EOS uses better materials, so it depends what you're looking for, aesthetics or performance.

    Out of all my balisongs overall I'd place it towards the lower end, but it's also one of the cheapest ones.

    If I was to complain about 1 thing: the first run wasn't numbered (unless I'm blind and didn't notice).
