    Which balisongs do y'all find to have the quietest clank? I have a Basilisk-R with blackened Ti handles which is pretty quiet, and a Barebones where I got the loctite and tuning just perfect and that also whispers. I would put my 42 and AB on the noisy end, and my Replicant and Tach III kind of in the middle.

    Hit me with your quietest clanks! I'm on a muteness mission >:D

    The Harbour prototype alien I have is the quietest I have ever heard a bali. After break in it's gotten a little more vocal but not much.

    got to agree the one I have from his first production is very quiet compared with all of my balis I do have an older Balibalistic that is almost as quiet

    I've heard that paper will muffle sound on a bali.

    Interesting...I saw a conversation online where someone jokingly recommended someone dip their BBbarfly in plasti-dip, but some strategically placed bits of paper actually sounds like a decent idea :notguilt:

    Bumping in case anyone else who hasn't seen this has some quietness grails :)
    I actually DID try putting tiny bits of paper towel in the channels of my arc angel where the kicker and spine of the blade contact the channels, and they become nearly silent on the closing/channel hits (which is usually like 3x as loud as the tang pin hits). Only SLIGHT downside is that it won't close all the way, but this only really affects carry, and not really flipping. I keep latchless balis in my pocket anyway so carrying is bout the same for me :) Thanks a million for the tip wes!!!

    Nope; it's real. My phone mic equalizes the decibel difference but it's amazing how much better it feels on the ears.

    My quietest bali is a Charles Marlowe Morse Code


    Morse code.jpg , lightening fast, lightweight, silent, and smooth.

    Tach 2 is definitely the quietest bali I've owned/flipped.

    I got one of the new prototypes for the new midtech ELBs a few weeks ago, and this is a very quiet boi. Much more quiet than my custom ELB.
