    I've seen maybe 3 or 4 Smallflies in the knives for sale thread over the summer, and I'd say they hovered around 200 bucks. Now I don't know if that is a good price, but it is what they have been going for lately.

    I had a 20 dollar lump of garbage back when I was 14. I attempted flipping it for a couple months and then it magically made it home with one of my cousins.



    He wasn't worth the 20 bucks either. :devilroll:

    Don't get too jealous now, it's a coveted ccc flea market Rostfrei. Snapped in half one day when I was flipping it. Not to mention that beautiful heat ano :manganr:

    This thread has been around awhile and I've never participated. I had a Bali comb back in the late 80's when I was a kid. Got it at a flea market and have no idea where it went. I do remember doing a basic horizonal opening which came pretty natural as I remember.

    About 5 years ago I bought a few benchmade axis knives and found I liked playing with them, but wanted more. I got a spyderco smallfly as my first adult balisong and haven't looked back. Still have it and hopefully always will.

    My first

    Early 80's Frost Cutlery bought at the local pool hall early 80's. Still flips great, perfect weight and balance. Probably paid $20 for it but don't really remember. It was replaced by a Pacific Cutlery 68 but unfortunately lost out of my back pocket in college.

    My first balisong was a Jaguar with the black plastic inserts and silver metal ovals in between. The one that was a copy of the benchmade 259.

    Years later I managed to get a benchamde 159 and I love it. It is my zamak safe queen.

    The first decent one I ever had was a Kimura. That thing cut the shit out of me on a daily basis.

    BM51, then a Tachyon 2 tanto. Now have a Specter on the way. Depending on how the Tachyon 3 production models look, I may consider getting rid of the Tach2.

    First bali was given to me by my dad in 2009. It was a really, really crappy zamak handled CCC (camo painted) with no edge that broke after me flipping it for about 45 minutes.

    Vaguely similar to this, but not the same.

    After that, one of the silver vein bear & son's.

    How do you guys like the latch on the AB 3.0? Is it easy to disengage or do you have to give it a good squeeze?

    Comes off pretty easy, with one T6 screw. It took me like 30 seconds to take it off after I took it out of the box.

    Same here. Just curious, does your safe handle have a lot of play? Mine seems a bit sloppy. Bite handle is on the money.

    Little bit more than the bite handle but definitely not sloppy. :ross:

    So my Prodigy gets its' latch stuck like that sometimes when I'm flipping. I'm thinking of filing part of the latch so its smoother. Does that sound good or are their better methods to fix this?

    I've filed my prodigy latch many times for that same reason. When you drop it, you often get little burs and such that make it snag. Either have to take it off, file it, or add o rings to keep it from flopping around.

    It's same issue the AB 1.0 had and the Specter. The latch is catching on burrs on the sides of the latch gate. Take a small file to each sides and widen the mouth of the gate slightly and this will solve your issue. I would not suggest continually shrinking the latch itself
