    Who’s flipped one and how do you like it?
    I’ve got the specs here but was wondering about the rest.

    Can’t say I’ve ever touched one but they seem to be a nice chunk of titanium. Looks like a custom with a nice touch but with only 14 being made probably won’t touch one in this lifetime.

    I got my hands on one of his early customs, it was prior to me getting really deep into flipping and it was at a meet so I didn't spend an overwhelming amount of time with it. That being said it does scream quality and it flips phenomenally well, I could see me appreciating it even more nowadays. So I know a lot of his balis are hype, do they match the hype? I'd say so especially for a handmade custom I've heard minute hand crafting complaints, but that's all part of getting a handmade custom. If I was to put it on a tier I'd say it flips a bit better than my chAB.. but that might be my preferences and skewed as it's been months since I got to mess with the BC

    Are they? Honest question. Knife is made by him from slabs of metal...handle, blade, latch, clip.

    They are great knives, no doubt, but are they one of a kind, handmade customs? Dont know. It not the quality or quantity, its the price.

    Honest answer, idk he says handmade knives. Not too clear on his process and all that. Also I messed with a BC which definitely has more work done to it than the normal drops he does

    Yeap Pale Bowie my new favorite flipper. Goodbye CHAB.
    Feels very natural in my hands. Just wish they weren’t so fucking expensive. But you get what you pay for.

    Just a headS up I thought maybe I could make the tolerance a little tighter. Dam that red loctite. It’s isn’t possible on mine to make tolerances tighter with out stripping the screws. Had to heat it up with heat gun to loosen that stuff. I prefer plumbers tape for maintenance purposes

    Did you end up getting it loose mine came with good tolerances, but one of my preferred customers is picking it up so I'll let him know about the red. Thanks for the post actually sometimes if you think it's blue you overwork it, so that info should come in handy for maintenance
