    What's up everyone, new member of JD here. You guys made me feel all special with the way my intro went, hopefully you'll get to know and enjoy me over time. Sorry if this is the wrong place for this but whats everyones favorite Bali, or just knife in general? Got a premium Rep with FM scales and it's my first really nice bali. Always had CCC before that.

    Man I'd like to but I don't exactly agree with benchmade on some things. And I've heard some horror stories about their QC, and that's with fixed blades and folders. If I got a lemon 51 I'd never forgive myself haha.

    The Replicant is an amazing bali.

    Pretty much any BRS bali is an excellent flipper and cutting tool right out of the box.

    Benchmades are expensive considering most people buy new handles or scales for them.

    Hom makes some cool stuff and stands behind his products.

    There are many excellent bali makers these days.

    Some of the small run makers have killer balis butt supply and demand is a crooked whore and you’ll pay top TOP fucking dollar second market.

    BRS does make an awesome bali....so does Hom.

    Bm51 is a great intro bali however, I know what ya'll mean about not wanting to buy from them.

    When you're ready for an amazing custom hit up Jason Lyons. Dude makes killer balis. Check em out:

    Has anybody suggested the Benchmade 51 yet? I highly recommend it.

    ***Greatest production balisong ever (if you don't count the BM42)

    Just depends on what side your standing on i reckon.....But i'd get kicked out of mississippi if i agreed with them lol. Doesn't mean i sold all my benchmades when it all went down. Hell, I still edc a flyti 32. Not to support benchmade really, but feels great in the pocket and keeps me from flipping at work.
    That was exactly what i was looking for.

    Was it ever confirmed the story is legit (or not getting the full story)? Honest question. I heard about it when it first came up but nobody could verify...only "I heard from my girlfriend's uncle's ex stepdaughter that blah blah blah). It's so hard to believe it to be true.

    ***Just all didn't add up

    After alot of research, the 51 is a great knife. Also, the 42 will continue to go up in value over time and is a solid investment.

    I just got a Ryworx Setsuna in the mail this morning and I am enjoying the hell out of it. It's not my favorite, but I thought I would mention it because it is in stock at pvk and not a bad price either at $240 (cheaper than a 51). It is a little light, 4.2oz, so I am still getting used to that but it flips really well... much, much better than a 51. It has s35vn, very well made, and has virtually zero handle play. I didn't know what to expect because I couldn't find too many reviews, but I decided to give it a try anyway at that price. I am very happy that I did.
