    Anyone see the new bali that Les is making? He posted a video on instatwitter today and it looks nice. I don't know much about how many but he said only one dealer will have them. He's been getting all of my extra cash on his daggers lately.

    I'll try to post one later and I have some pics somewhere. It's going to be a nice one but I don't know much more.

    Dudley has all the cool toys. Les posted a pic of it unassembled on Facebook yesterday. I want one but am trying to sell and not buy these days. I have way too much crap but have been saying that for years.

    Still one of my favorite Balis period was Les George and the baliballistics collaboration.

    They went live at Wilson Combat today and I got one. Don't need another knife but thought I'd play with it for a while.

    I will and post some pics as well. I hope that this will be like the VECP and we see a few versions. It's large and runs on bearings so I should be happy.

    WC approached Les and asked him to build a balisong for them. They're his best customer so he obliged

    What Chris said. I don't know the details of this batch but I'm guessing it is easier to have a distributor deal with the sales. Les didn't say how many he made in this batch but I'm guessing 30 or so from the parts I saw posted. But this is only a guess but Les did make them all. Wilson just deals with the headache of all that comes with this many knives.

    Looks pretty solid. The design doesn't do much for me but I'm curious to see how they flip. They seem a bit heavy for the size but those block spacers could make them pretty decently balanced.

    From what I understand RC 60 CTS-XHP has pretty similar characteristics to D2 but I'm not too familiar with it, nor am I a steel snob.

    Overall it looks good.
