    I'm glad to see that. I'm hopeful the Lucha drop will breathe some new life into the balisong world by getting more balis in more hands. Theres been a lot of new manufacturers popping up making knifes under the $400 mark.

    Thats a good deal considering i paid 145 back in march. Wish i had held out. Took Lucha out of safe today to flip it ti handles really change the flip. Jump on it probally wont get any cheaper.

    I ordered the blue pair so we shall see. It brings it down to 4.5 oz and the dimensions are fairly large, so I suspect it will be similar to a kraken which I like.

    Dude, Kraken on bearings is exactly what I thought when I saw the pictures!
    I love how my stock Lucha flips, but it's just too skinny and heavy for me personally. I almost immediately dropped and tipped it (on wood) the day I got it, so the fat handles and 4.5 oz sweet spot make it really appealing. I don't care about switching aluminum because IMO it's already not something to be dropped on a hard surface. And channel construction too!
    I've never taken apart a bearing knife before, but this has gotta be worth it. I was even considering the Ti kit but it didn't seem worth it as the handles we're pretty similar (still skinny)

    I can't wait to hear what u all think, I really want to grab a set, but I'm broke, also gotta do Xmas shopping

    i have never been a fan of aluminum handles on a bali, but they do look pretty innovative

    So tempted to buy a set just to try them out and compare to the ti handles on mine but i think im going to wait to see how other people like them.

    That giggling soyboy was in disbelief that a balisong was the best seller. What genius at BHQ hired that idiot for their videos?
    It says mine should arrive Tuesday, so I will I will update with my thoughts soon after.

    I picked up a pair, I have one lucha with the ti handles and then will have one with the aluminum. I will be able to compare them side by side

    Awesome! I can't wait to hear what you think. Hopefully they might be in stock next month, so I can grab a set after hearing what you guys think.

    I wonder how long it will be before Spyderco and BM are offering a Bali closer to the price point of the Lucha? The SmallFly 2 is not the Lucha’s competition.

    I'm gonna change my opinion. Great price point, looks pretty good, seems like a solid knife for EDC and there isn't really anything else you could ask for. Maybe G10 handles with different color options but that's about it.

    ***Looking like a Kimura shouldn't be a negative

    Never been a fan of aluminum handles on a bali either but am a fan of the Lucha, just not enough to invest in ti handles. This looked like an interesting alternative with an attractive price point. Grabbed a pair in black.

    I bit the bullet and ordered one. I'll let you guys know what I think. Wanted to order a pair of those aluminum handles as well but they are all gone. Hopefully they are going to restock soon.
