    Curious to find out everyones preffered method(s) of carrying. What balisongs are your favorite to carry, type of sheath if you use one, who makes it, etc...

    I'll start. I usually preffer somthing with a pocket clip and latch so I can just throw it in my pocket along with my keys. Loose I find the bali shifting around too much in my pocket, gets all scratched and digned up from my keys, and makes lots of noise. I'll carry a full sized bali when I can, but most of the time, especially if I'm going somewhere like Boston with their 2.5" limit, I'll carry my little 31.

    I also recently got this sidewinder sheath from Compound_Grind on Instagram. Really great for balis without a pocket clip, either clipped in the pocket or inside the wasitband.

    Finally I have this Sauctin Banks belt sheath I got secondhand. Accomodates slighty bigger balis and has a horizontal carry belt loop. Sometimes I'll wear it on my hip or back, but usually just chuck it in my pocket so my keys arn't banging against the bali. It can still shift around a bit but not as much as a loose bali.

    I normally carry in my pocket but might have to look into a slip. Those are nice.

    Those are pretty sweet, digging the top grey and white one ones, where'd you get them?

    I'd consider those sheaths. Reffering more to zipper pouches like an Ace Case.

    thanks man yours are sweet too

    the top grey/silver one to the far left is a reading glasses case from foster grant LOL. i found it laying on a shelf at work and after several months of it not moving i claimed it. i have a coworker with 4 or 5 pairs of reading glasses so was prob his. he is forgetful and when i asked him about it he couldn’t remember. :)

    the white is a $30 etsy sheath by grommets leatherworks. prob my fav although i literally just got it today.

    i like that suction banks dudes leather work. too bad hes a dick on instagram otherwise i’d try to attain one.

    before people were doing much balisong sheath wise i would hunt down reading glasses cases because they worked so well.

    the one to the lower far right is from Germany and is the Munich skyline. i ordered a few and gave them as gifts to righteous devils. they took MONTHS to get here!

    I've been edcing these 2 for several years. They gotta be small, short, latched, and with a clip.....or atleast I thought
    20200517_125930.jpg
    Then Jason whipped up this ole girl. Still small, but not short, latchless, and no clip. And now introducing me to a sheath style carry.....and I'm in love with it and ready to try more freakin sheaths lol.

    In my back pocket, next to my wallet, tip down. Why over-complicate things?

    God, I want a nice sheathe sooo bad. Unfortunately, i’m in California where it’s illegal to carry bali’s in public. So my vote is just latch in pocket where I don’t EVER i repeat EVER carry my bali’s. :notguilt:

    BM51 (latch and clip) in the front right pocket. It replaces the roll of quarters I use to carry.

    The down side...if I ever get in a knife fight I'll be dead before I'm able to get it out.

    ***Grizzly tin in the back pocket

    Fuck yeah LOL. I don't carry quarters anymore because I have the arcade at home.

    Mad Katz TE2+ Fightstick (Tournament Edition). Customized with Sanwa buttons and replaced the square gate with the octagon directions for easier execution of the DP. Have the spring tension at 2 lbs. My go to for tourneys.

    ***Mad Katz was bought out by Logitech so they no longer make it
