    Hey guys and gals.
    Wanted to show some love for a favorite Bali maker of mine, Palethius.
    I know some of you appreciate his work as well so let’s see those Pales :)
    Here’s my revolutions and my industrial. Probably my favorite knives I own.

    I'm a fan.

    Recently picked up a Backline v2 and it's pretty nice. I have one of his very first complete balisongs where it was intended to be BM51 scales but he made a blade of his own for it. I also have a set of one-off 51 scales with purple ano and BRS like chevrons that would probably set people off nowadays.

    I do think his stuff is pretty overhyped and overpriced but that's what happens when there's low supply and high demand. It's also very good quality considering it's all handmade.

    Some day I'd like to pick up some more of his work but it's hard to justify the usual asking price.

    Been on the hunt for a Backline v2.
    And the 51 scales sound amazing .
    Wouldn’t mind seeing a pic of those.

    I’ve noticed the hype is less than other makers whose stuff sells out even faster than his ... and although cost is up there is pretty comparable with handmade knives made from stock from known makers.
    It’s interesting how it’s a love / hate with this particular maker it seems.
    The hype seemed more of a thing a few years ago.

    Wasn't Pale the guy that was suppose to make custom Titanium spacers for a list of Devils on here,
    for the then new MicroTech Tachyon II ?!
    IIRC, they came with shit aluminum ones and then we had to pay for the "better" stainless barrel spacers
    but unfortunately the one that was suppose to act as a latch gate was STILL not sized right.
    But we got a free slightly larger one eventually from Blade HQ, who was the distributor of the balis.
    Cant complain. The original price of the MT Tachyon II was only $290.
    And $20 less if you pre ordered.

    I could be wrong. It all could of been a bad dream.

    I AM pretty sure I was on that list though . . . . still waiting. :bwah:

    fine i’ll fess up

    very late in his modding days he did a tach2 tanto for me with blue ano handles, polished hardware, a bit off the rear tip of the blade to prevent handle collision. he stopped the chamfering just under the pivots so it looked awesome.

    because photobucket sucks ass i lost my pictures of it i think

    *anyone know who has this knife now? i cant remember who i sold it to for like $400


    thing was fucking beautiful

    he was nice to deal with

    he was pretty regular on here

    it’s everything after that

    crooked people hopped on his train and ruined it

    they are beautiful knives no doubt

    just ain’t my gig

    *found some old pics of the tach2 he did 4 me around march/april of 2015

    Don't know what you got till it's gone. And it ain't easy to get back. Takes so long long long.

    I've only bothered with bali's that perform and gotten rid of the rest.

    These two aren't going anywhere.

    Life's to short to flip junk.

    *** Happy Easter!
