    If there isn't hopefully they will see this and add one. The latch doesn't matter at all, as long as it works, but a latchgate is as essential as a blade to me. There is just no reason not to include one. Other wise the latch literally dulls and dings the part of the blade that gets used the most.

    It is common sense. And I feel like microtech knows better. Did the original have a latchgate? I have never handled one before.

    The original supposedly had one (never handled one myself either), and I can't imagine that they would remove it from the design. But since Microtech's last bali was without one, I figured it wouldn't hurt to get confirmation.

    Im taking the latch off regardless, I do not own a bali with a latch, I basically have a latch collection to match every knife. Plus, having a steel latch on Ti handles may result in more wear, no latch.

    Mine has a latch gate. The new ones will as well, I'm sure.

    Undoubtedly it will. They wouldnt improve on the knifes shortcomings only to drop one of its positive aspects. I cant wait to get mine!!

    When you do get them, will you be putting up a video looking over the knife before shipping it out?

    Did they retain the fuller from the previous design, or go with those skeletonized holes in the blade (as seen in the renderings?)
