    Alright, I meant to get this up sooner but haven't so here it is. Here's some pic's and info for you all!So for the info, these are the first two proof's to make sure everything fit right and went smoothly. They are not as round as the proto's and production balis are going to be. These 2 have a 3/32nd rounding where the proto's and production will have a comfortable 1/8th inch radiusing to them. The stack up is going to sit at .47" which is similar to a 4x springer thickness. Weight is looking at being about 4.6oz-4.7oz. Can't say definitely until the proto's are done but even these two being over sized are extremely comfortable to flip. Now that these are done and everything is going to work we've gone into the final steps of getting the proto's done. The scheduled finish/build date is during the week of Feb 20th-24th so expect some more pictures between now and then. As for other details, we decided to go with the satin finish blade as the bead blasted blade just didn't cut it for this bali. Also, each proof has different rear hardware and I hated the small hardware so that's out. If I'm forgetting anything I'll be sure to update it more here. I'm also going to try and update the first post like HOM does to make it easier to see updates. I really appreciate everyone who has seen this project to completion especially with how long it has taken.[img2=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-size":"full","src":"http:\/\/www.jerzeedevil.com\/forums\/core\/image\/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAPABAP\/\/\/wAAACH5BAEKAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAICRAEAOw=="}[/img2] ‚Äč

    I haven't been around very long and still very new to the balisong world but I think these look awesome! Really digging the blade profile! I'll try to read up and get caught up on the history of your progress with this project but from an outsider I'd say regardless of the history you've done a fantastic job! I hope to own one day.

    Looks amazing. Wishful thinking but If any of the midtech spot still available I'll definitely take it. If not then I'll be hitting that f5 nonstop on the drop time :unintroduced:

    These are absolutely beautiful. Obviously put a lot of thought into the design. Would love to see someone give it a flip.

    the handles look long and large compared to the blade length and blade profile. pics can be deceiving though.
