    In regards to the flipper model, will it have the same utility style blade as the proto that JJ reviewed or a different grind... or will there be options?

    Also, will it be latchless?

    Really excited for this. I think the diamond shaped design on solid handles will look good and 5.0oz is bang on!

    this version will have two blade styles to start with, a tanto and a Long clip " Bowie" with no swedge, the spines will be rounded, they will be ground with a loveless high hollow grind and tapered to the tip, this will make them very light for the size stock. They are also latchless

    You had me at latchless. I'm in.

    Also I'll take a long clip bowie blade.

    Will there be some with the latch, or are they all latchless?

    Pretty sure all latchless for the flipper model, to reserve weight in the back of the handles

    This batch will be latchless, I am working on other option. I am able to keep prices down if I do these in batches, I am working on an inlayed handle that will follow these

    Speaking of prices... what's the ball park figure for the flipper?

    these should start at $700 and not be much more than that. I still haven't got the bid back from the machine shop, and material is the same as the first batch.

    Not a fan of the pattern on the handles but it looks like a quality product.

    I really like it.

    I like the idea of a plain handle and blade with no latch for a Pro Flipper.

    No fuss design just flipping in mind.

    Me too, the flipping needs to be fancy not the knife. But seriously the knife looks classy to me, plain yet purpose driven. The Ano plays the part in breaking the "plain". I really like the color chosen this route. Eldon seems to have a talent presenting knives in this way, unique.

    I'd agree with the last couple posts. Really like the straight to business look it has. Straight forward blade grind with a very cool shape. I'm sure the handle texture makes for solid grip but not too sticky. Can't wait to see reviews for this flipper and possibly take one for a spin myself! Channel ti bali specifically designed for flippers.. that's fucking win! Great work man! :thumbsup:

    This knife is for the flipper, I am a straight forward person and that shows in my knives. This knife sounds different than other balis the flipped titanium makes a sound that is its own. It was somthing I had a hard time putting down. I hope this knife is somthing that flippers like. There are so many good balisongs out there, I just wanted to make one to sit next to them in people's collections. It takes a lot of time and money to make a knife like this with no garentee it will be a success.
    I guess we will see.
