    any thoughts on this Bali?
    I’m not sure if it’s been made before. Haven’t seen it anywhere so I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with it or if anyone had any opinions. Worth the money? Heard any good things? Thanks in advance!

    So I had to...
    1. Open a new tab
    2. Type in "Google.com"
    3. Type in "Osp Matric Bali"
    4. Hit the search button
    5. Click on image
    6. Wait for web page to load

    Attach a picture man! I was going to attach the picture for you but those 6 steps wore me out.

    ***WARNING!!! $650!!!

    Here are my thoughts;

    1. The handles look half decent and well designed.

    2. Hol-Lee-Fuck that tanto is horrible. It doesnt match the handles and looks like it was designed by a 10 year old. They have obviously put effort into designing such a bad blade.. cause theres no way you could do that by accident.

    100% agree. The exact two things I noticed right away.

    The handles look decent and it's a unique design...but not ugly. But that blade is GAWD awful. It doesn't go with the handle at all.

    I would have a problem spending $200 on that bali (based on looks alone)...no chance I'm dropping $650.


    ***Don't understand how that blade got approved through the design process

    I beleive that is one of the hand ground blades. The majority are CNC'd and look like this..

    I’ve had the clip point in my cart 100’s of times now at least.

    I like the internal machining, should sound nice.

    yeah idk, the price dosent seem to be on par with what youre getting. I understand R&D costs may be tied up in that as well but its not enticing enough to pay that premium.

    Any idea when the hell it's actually going to be released? Seems like it's been available for preorder for a while now.

    Pretty sure I was the first one or one of the first to order the trainer blade waited several months
    Kinda felt put off when asking about my order I finally canceled it many months later.
    All the while he was clearly selling them as they were in the hands of others.

    I have looked at the OSP Bali's a couple of times. I want to like it because apparently these guys are starting out and I would like to see more nice options in the market but........not super excited about the blade designs and it just seems expensive as hell! $650 is base price and the one I configured ended up around $850. No thanks....
