    Hey Devils, noble members of a board where people are above the BS.

    I come to you with swap in mind. I have an excellent condition Hinderer Eclipse gen 2. I won’t say it is LNIB because I am the second owner. However the knife has been absolutely babied.

    The gen2 Eclipse plus the working finish on the blade didn’t make for a great flipping action. The detent is plenty strong (without being too strong) but the pivot needed a smoother surface. So I polished the flats of the tang abit and now it has an excellent flipping action where you would have to try if you wanted it to fail. It also has a professional edge on it which is among the nicest edges I have ever seen on a knife.

    One last thing I did was anodize the clip and filler tab bronze purple to give the knife a bit of colour. So allow me to present to you Donatello; the Ninja Turtle Hinderer!

    (More pics on request. My camera is just acting funny so I would have had to restart my phone to take more pics which would mean I had to type this whole ad again)

    Just ignore the dpx HEST, consider it Master Splinter. This Hinderer has flawless lockup (40-45%) with a pivot that allows excellent action with no bladeplay. There is no lockstick, lockrock, lockslip, lockcreep. I would never actually trade Donatello except for that I live in the city so he’s a bit big for me to be edcing around.

    What I am looking for is a decent balisong that has a pocket clip. Preferably no bigger than 3.75 inch blade and definitely no bigger than 4 inch)

    I also have a Medford 187 DP that I got in a trade that has patina on the blade and is like 75-80% good condition except for a few cosmetic marks and a little lockstick. I have many more knives too so if you have a bali that fits my wants please just message me and we can work out a dealio)

    Hit me up with some offers if you’re interested.

    Ok thank you,

    Let’s say trade value somewhere 300-325$ give or take. I’m looking for maybe a well loved bali that someone already owned for abit but now needs a new home. If you guys got something in mind just offer, it never hurts to ask.

    Edit: i got some credentials too on another forum which I don’t want to post here to avoid cross forum shit. I’ll show ‘em if a trade comes up in private message.

    More important that I can edc it than it be an absolute top notch flipper. I still want it to flip pretty well though if possible.
