    This is exciting, but it IS a Benchmade. So, it will most likely be expensive, especially with the huge demand for their discontinued balis.

    Shit, This is great news. Sounds like a production model and not just a sprint. More details are in order.

    Calvin, Who is the source of the release? Benchmade I guess, but not on their press release list. Or rather, what forum reported this? Any mention of when they might be available? What Fun!

    Be careful Calvin your Canadian is showing a bit...(note last comment in the picture)

    Also, I want to get excited by this but for all we know it could be another BM 53 type bali...even though that would be retarded as shit.

    ONLY precame?

    I am nearly J.I.M.P. :devilroll:
    Any news from Benchmade about new balisongs is good news. Unless it's a 53.

    I had to wear a strafe jacket just to only stop at that part haha.

    Srsly though if this bitchass costs more than 300 bucks, I might have to tap out...

    I hope they do one in the $250 range.. maybe a Darrel Ralph collab.. put their machining to the test doing those crazy ass handles.

    BM owes the balislinging community a lot after the 53 and crazy ass $1500 BM42 that nobody in their right mind is going to enjoy as they should.

    That being said I feel the BM51 and BM32 are still great balisongs not that I've expanded my balisong palette over the last two months... they don't get enough attention due to the 42 craze :(

    I have to sadly agree. Flippers are still the minority. Granted it's a big
    enough niche to make a side product for it, but it is not currently big
    enough to sway total production decisions.

    Benchmade did not make the 42 for flipping. The fact that it flips well
    is coincidental. I also think it was the only thing available for around
    a decade or so for flipping (a good flipper that is) so by default it took
    that crown.

    Either way though I'm still very interested in seeing what they do.
    Sandwich style 42 is promising.

    There are a few Options that I see benchmade choosing.

    A Dedicated flipper.

    Another User.

    A more Affordable model (kimura Killer) But this one is not likely since benchmade really strives to put out quality, I cant see them making a "red class" kind of bali. Interesting thought though.

    A collecter with stupid pearl inlays, carbon fiber, damascus type of stuff.

    Model nuber wise who knows, it could be:

    A New 50 series (could be a 51 with a new blade) Or total new design, (IE look at the differences between 51 and 53)

    A 40 series ( upgrades to older models. Sandwich, PBwashers, Bushings, steel)

    Who knows. As far as I am thinking is that it can only beat the 53. I say we have a good chance it will be a bali worth buying!

    Here's to hoping it's going to be a good flipper. Would love something to come out that's a really good flipper and easily replaceable. :ross:
