    First ever BRS knife came in. This is a Bowie Style blade AB. Was expecting high quality and it for sure delivers. Knife is a beauty and tolerances are perfect.
    :rawks:
    Question is do I take off the latch. This latch doesn’t really get in the way of flipping but I have other ways of telling which side is the live blade. I just feel like it might look cleaner without one. Let me know if you have an AB and if latchless is a good idea.

    thats sex dude

    /adds bowie to list

    if you plan on flipping like crazy run latchless

    i was a latch whore and someone incredible changed my mind

    don’t get me wrong the latch serves a purpose and plenty of awesome flippers run a latch but they so clean without

    yeah, if you wanna get into serious flipping, you might as well go latchless... But thats a great knife, and thanks for you other thread that we meandered off a cliff lol. Enjoy.

    don’t say ‘we’ so lightly
    it was me
    i derailed it and my doc upped my lithium
    said straight jacket comes next

    my bad but with love

    just be cautious of the handle
    the safe handle is always warmer

    flip that badass alpha beast like mad!

    got one today also. Take off the latch!!! Easy enough to put back on when you want it.

    Thank you for that video, just got my first ever bali today, and it came without a latch installed, and I kept grabbing the bite handle. Now i can latch it closed, and know which is my bite handle. I know they say once bitten twice shy, but it took me a good 3 or 4 to stop doin it.

    My vote (and therefor the only one you should give any consideration) is to keep the latch, as someone who's gen 1 or so AB is sitting in his dad's drawer without a latch.

    Congrats to all who grabbed one. Purple definitely looks nice. I had one in my cart and checked out but by the time I proved I wasn’t a robot, my order confirmation informed me it wasn’t in stock.

    Ended up grabbing a standard bowie instead. Finally got to pick it up tonight since we were away all week. Really need to work on my flipping now in order to justify my last couple purchases.
