    It's a shame praying mantis only live for 9 months. Well the small ones around here. Kept one as a pet for awhile and watching them eat is something else. Nice pics joe and oldies but goodies Buddha.

    So a few weeks ago I picked up this awesome Matt Cook custom with a Pugio blade from the secondary market. Although the knife was in excellent condition I went ahead and sent it out to Matt Cook for some revisions anyways:) I had Matt bring up the polish on the blade significantly, reano the entire knife, jewel the liners, update the bushings, buff the ironwood, and update the spring latch (this knife may very well be the first spring latch Matt ever did). All in all I am very VERY pleased as to how the knife turned out! But hey, we're talking about the master Matt Cook:thumbsup:

    BTW, there is a little smudge on one side of the blade lol... At first, I thought it was a dirty spot or an area where someone had tried to polish the blade but chickened out. But low and behold, it is one of Matt's really early maker's marks. That's no smudge, it's a little Mantis etched in the blade:)

    Enjoy the pics!

    Nice finish enhanced with the Balisong de Matt, powerful and impressive blade !!
    I have seen on a JJ Camerer, purple anodizing goes well with the Arizona ironwood (or snake wood) !!:thumbsup:

    Thanks, glad you guys like it! Believe it or not this knife is 11 1/8" long and is 1 of only 2 true double edge balisongs that Matt has ever made. If you make even the slightest mistake with this thing you're gonna pay in blood.

    My new favorite flipper, Wscott Curtis.. I told him to title this video "What Bitches".... Guess what he titled it, WHAT BITCHES! Love this guy! Keeps it real and does what he feels like doing! Hopefully I'll get a chance to drink a beer with this dude one day:manganr:
