    For those of you that want a good laugh,
    There’s an Emerson Bali for sale on BF for only $850!
    It’s a commander style blade.
    Listed under custom knives for sale by individuals.
    Are these really customs/handmade like his custom series folders?

    Notice how I didn’t bother putting it in the deal spotter thread . . . .

    Same guy who listed it for $1550 in September. Still WAY overpriced at $850! In spite of the fact that the first knife he built was a balisong, Emerson really missed the boat by finally releasing this type of knife this late in the game. I don't think anyone in their right mind would pay that much for a production bali, when Jerry's knives are the new standard and look/feel/ and are built better/cheaper...

    Heck, I'd buy the Les George/Wilson Combat collaboration before I bought that Emerson!

    Handled a couple of these at bladeshow. Basically a BM51 with that retarded "wave" crap on it. I literally wouldn't pay $200 for one of those things...

    I don't understand this knife. Or why anyone would want one, even at a decent price. I'm sure there are some emerson-heads out there saying its the best balisong EVAR MADE.

    So wtf, is there not going to be a full on production release!? I have been saving some cash for one since news of it at blade show ....

    If it IS a good flipper, it'd also just be good for my collection.

    I remember hearing the price for these at blade was high. I do not remember the specific number but I do recall how shocked it made me.

    I think it was in the $400 neighborhood but I could be wrong. I laughed when I saw these. Actually laughed, then my attention focused in on the wave and then I laughed for a bit more...
