    I just recently got into custom balisongs, and am slowly building up my collection. I must say that yours is both extremely inspiring and an invaluable representation of the art, style and craftsmanship that goes into each maker's balisong. Thanks a lot for sharing the pictures and details with your fellow Devils, Jim! I'm hoping that more collectors start similar threads showcasing their own collections...
