    Thats just spyderco being spyderco. They have a patent on the spyderhole.

    Just got the knife center email. Not a bad price for pre-order. I'll still be keeping my original Small Fly tho. Much nicer blade profile and NO HOLE.

    But will I pick up a Small Fly 2 eventually on the used market .... probably.

    It looks like they were going for a blade shape to match their line of folders.

    And I can understand them wanting to incorporate the Spyderco hole.

    But that hole makes zero sense lol.

    Its not practical for opening the knife and aesthetically its too small and looks nothing like a regular spyderco hole. Its dumb.

    The blade is very practical and the spyderhole is iconic. Having said that, it looks horrible as a bali. Hard pass on this one.

    Blade design is a user it just looks like balisong handles put on a folder. The hole reminds me of the Ikuchi.

    Looks like the hole might line up with the center of the diamond as an indicator atleast. The sort of slanted off blade will probably be odd to flip though.

    I will say, that at least major companies are putting out balis still. I mean, Im not a fan of that blade on those handles, but at least they are still in the game.

    Yea I can definitely appreciate how there still putting out a balisong that has good materials. Maybe if a used one comes up and the price right...just maybe

    The original Smallfly had exceptional balance for flipping.

    If they scaled it up to full size, it would have been regarded as one of the best imo.

    Funky, but i'd give it a shot

    I kinda feel like spyderco won't rip our heads off with the price either.....could be wrong though

    **Edit Oh damn, i see only $210, not too shabby

    Buddha was asking why the hole wasn't bigger. His big penis isn't going to fit in that.

    I'm on the fence on the look. The original is definitely a better blade design for something that small. I guess I'll see what the price is before making any decisions.

    ***If they have a giant fly with a new blade design...whole different story

    That's a very nice looking blade profile for that knife, nightrage. [looks at the grinder...]

    it was obviously placed there with flipping in mind. spyderco engineers placed that hole at that precise spot to ensure the balance of the blade is moved forward just enough to fit the high tolerance parameters set in place by lord Glesser.
