    Hello all, my name is Gabe. I am 19 years old and have been flipping balisongs since I was 12 years old. Like most people who start flipping, I saw the meet the spy video on YouTube and thought, "that looks cool, I wanna learn how to do it." So I asked my dad what that knife was called and he said it's a balisong and he actually had one in a tackle box he used to gut fish with. So I started on a live blade, but ended up getting a few crappy Amazon trainers later. My first really quality balisong was an Alpha Beast clone (yes I know clones are bad, I was 12 and didn't know better). After not flipping for over 3 years I recently decided to get back into the hobby. Once I learned about clones and how much they hurt the community, I sold all of the clones I had. My first REAL quality bali was a beat SqT 3.5 which I still use to this day as my work flipper. I have been expanding my collection a lot recently, my main goal is to get a BM42, that will be my grail.

    Welcome! I, too, am from Pennsylvania, though I am not 19 years old.

    I wish you luck in finding your BM 42. As for clones being bad, it really wasn't their fault: it was the result of their programming by the Kaminoans which caused them to execute Order 66 and essentially destroy the Jedi, and allow Emperor Palpatine, aka Darth Sideous, to establish the Galactic Empire.

    I may have actually just found a 42S for under 300, and it's legit. :O
    Well actually, I didn't find it, a buddy of mine is selling it and he knew I wanted one so he asked me first before putting it up for sale

    The what video? Most of us started by watching Hitgirl and thought, "that girl is not flipping a real BM42".
