    Yeah, I doubt he's the guy on BF with 6000+ posts. He seems to know his shit.


    There should be a law against using handles others already use on other forums. :bwah:


    Although I'm pretty sure "nostimos" gets used a lot on gay porn sites. . . :ropeman: :jdwink2: :madaddy:

    The hardware doesn't look proprietary to me just embelsihments around a torx. Competition is good for the market. I'd expect it to be priced right at or under the AB.


    The distribution, production capabilities and exposure benchmade brings is good for balisongs. I would guess some flippers have had input and are bound by an NDA - it's just to easy to buy flippers for a song not too.


    I hope it's built with a new technology maybe additive printing or laser sintering or something fun. Perhaps some new space age alloy... That would be cool.

    If the price is around AB pricing I'll be impressed. It looks like this one is going to be channel handles which i feel would put it up above it a bit

    I should have mentioned I banned that douche nozzle for 2 weeks. No intro and all of that business. Carry on.

    With the obvious machined look, it definitely doesn't look like the old cast titanium or cast anything else. It would be great if it was a channel but milling a channel is really too expensive

    I hope your right and it's torx

    It is going to be channel construction. Torx like all of their other models.

    I have a long history with their balis. Over the years I had Pacific Cutlery Bali-Songs, early Benchmades, and also the modern models. They seem to have gone backwards with the 6x series but I'm hopeful with this one and would love to see them come out with something competitive with the rest of today's market.

    Too early to tell, but it's interesting in any case. Someone said the 51 wasn't in high demand, it sure was when it first came out years ago...hell it was a top tier flipper, still is in my top 10 even without aftermarket Ti scales, with, even better. Really the 51 IMO is better than the 4x anyday.....better made, fit and finish. Now that's not to say this new knife will be anything flipping wise, but will bet it will be a nice balisong as is the 6x...if you only judge it as a balisong and leave flipping out of the criteria. BM makes fine knives in general.....

    The Instagram post the happened last night looks pretty good. I think they still have some milling to do one the handles but it defiantly got a lot thinner. I stand optimistic that this will be a good knife. I hope all of the blade options of the past are represented as well as new profiles. At any rate they have looked on trends with Flytainium scales and incorporated them in the design of the new line.

    I don't understand all the jeers that Benchmade is getting on their IG comments. They're announcing a new balisong, not guaranteeing that their next knife will be the best flipper out there. I'm not a big fan of the 6x myself, but the quality is excellent and it is a rather nice knife.
