    Well after a long time saving up, I got a special Balibalistic in the other day and thought it was worthy of starting a thread for. This BB is a latchless Mariner with the Benchmade style hole pattern. Both the blade and handles are made of Chad Nichols stainless steel raindrop Damascus and it has Mokuti spacers. At this point in time, this is the only Balibalistic Shawn has ever made with full Damascus handles, though that could always change if he decided to do more. It's a knife you really have to see in person to fully appreciate, pictures won't do it justice.

    Thank you to the fellow devil who hooked me up with this, I can't say how much I appreciate it! :thumbsup:

    Now for the pictures...

    Hey Brian,

    Congrats on the newly acquired BB. That is a great bali. It must heavy, right? With all that Damascus.

    Your BB collection is getting more and more impressive. :thumbsup:

    Thanks Sonny!

    Yea its got some weight to it, but I'm not sure exactly how much. I don't have a scale. This knife is a safe queen, so I don't mind the weight.

    Very nice!:thumbsup:

    Makes me wonder if it was made to a customers specs... or if it was made on a whim by Shawn/Sean/Shaun/Shorn.

    Just that if I waited X amount of years for one of his knives I wouldn't go for a BM hole pattern. I'd rather get something unique to the maker.

    Different strokes I guess.

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure exactly when this one was made, but I do know that it was a full custom build, made to a customers specs.

    I thought the Benchmade pattern might look a little outdated, but in person its actually really nice. I've liked every hole pattern I've seen on a BB, probably because they're just done very well.

    *** it's Shawn :thumbsup:
