    They seem to be well constructed and built out of quality materials. That's a big chunk of change to spend on uncharted territory though. This knife maker's first bali. He seems to have a good rep for his other knives. Maybe he can nail the balance. I guess its a wait and see. Have you seen the EOS Serpents also? I was curious on those as well.

    Not technically Hinderer’s first Bali. I believe the Fire Whirl takes that title and it is wildly considered one of the finest (and rarest - pretty sure only 7 were made) balisongs to date.

    I think $410 for a full Ti Bali these days is pretty on point. Not a huge fan of the handle design but may have to pick one up and test it out myself.

    Thinking I'll give it a shot, wish the drop was a little later so that I could (potentially) handle one at Blade first.

    it says coming soon, so probably is going to be after the Blade show...
    On another note...it reminds me a Bear ops knife :)
    but I think I`ll try to get one...

    it's supposed to drop friday. I bought an XM-24 recently and I'm happy with it so far. I'm probably going to try for a blue or stonewash.

    Specs and price look appealing.

    I like the name.

    It's name was inspired by Captain Nieves Fernandez, the only known female Philippine Guerrilla leader who aided U.S. troops and revolutionary forces during World War II. The Nieves Balisong was created to embody her indomitable spirit and proficient knife skills.

    And its here. Quick and dirty desktop shot at work with my XM-24

    [​IMG]

    Has a decent handle bias for those who prefer that. Tip hasn't hit the spacer yet and it flips pretty good. Has a little side to side play and the blade will rub the handles on my example from the factory. I'll see if I can "tune" it better. Balance point open is right before the first set of holes.
