    Yeah that guy used to get ripped apart.
    (i never really paid attention but seems to be the crooked type)

    That bali looks pretty nice though.

    Balisongs have turned into the SUV from the late 90’s.

    Every maker tryin to make one. *trend

    i got one too, wish it came with at least an info card, and surprised it came in pvk branded pouch.

    i like it, though balance is rather unique among my collection. a single handle is closer to the blade weight than anything else i own, like even slightly more than kukuri ab with barrel spacers. makes fanning with fingers and thumb feel cool, but trying to fan by jerking your hand around in circles doesn't work as well.

    not a fan of faces on blades but at least it's minimal. blade profile is sweetness.



    Heh, that's what I was telling every maker at bladeshow if they didn't. "every knife manufacturer should produce at least one bali"....
    i love seeing so many more good options in stock for more than an hour recently.


    lol, i even tried to convince case knives they should make one, because they used to make an auto. I'm already preparing myself for brass liners, jigged giraffe bone scales, and brass pinned pivot technology.

    Lol, my apologies, but I actually didn't read through the thread. JD is blocked at work, so I just did a cursory search for you on the train ride. I really do hope you like the knife. We need more makers in order to keep things interesting, right?

    Basically.. Ballzano is a thief and a liar.

    I wouldn't give him any money.

    Agreed. I'll support most any honest, hardworking knife maker. But I do greatly value the opinions of the "older hands" here on JD. So I'd like to think, because of that, is the reason why I have never had any issues with makers, knives, etc.... If they say he's a fuck, then he's a fuck and I'll stay clear. Or if the maker has a shitty attitude. I've wanted a knife from Greg Medford for a while. They seem huge and bulky and the complete opposite from anything I would ever carry. And would most likely carry it once and chuck it in the collection. But then I see videos of him bashing customers and I think, "Man, this dude might be a fuck." Again, not sure. Other things he says i could agree with. Just feel that if you did somehow have any issue whatsoever, it would most likely be your fault.
