    I like the blade profile, and the handles look nicely rounded

    Yeah, I'm figuring that they'll do a budget version without all the whiz bangery for a lot cheaper.

    that really looks too nice to be a production. at least for MT standards. unless they are seriously trying to wow the bali community im getting a custom vibe from this one.

    wouldnt mind a toned down prod. model though i'd expect the clip and spring latch and maybe even the channel handles will be a no go.

    Channel Ti !!! Pretty interesting . . . .
    At least a MAJOR knife manufacturer is once again bringing a Ti channel bali to the marker. I guess we cant complain anymore. :bwah:
    But I still need to see what the regularly available version will be like, AND the price. :ropeman:

    Nobody is talking about the retractable clip? Microtech makes an innovative idea and everyone laughs.

    I think it sounds sweet. I hate not having a clip cause I can't carry the balisongs...but I hate the clips cause they restrict flipping. Retractable clip? Boom problem solved.

    Plus, channel construction and a spring latch. That is awesome. I'm going to bet if all the features stay, it'll be expensive. I'm calling $600. $500 minimum.

    the retractable clip is awesome. everything about the knife screams flipper for sure.

    the question here is the price point and if thats the features of a production model or a custom. too pricey or too rare and those "great for flipping" features go to waste on a safe queen.

    Retractable clip would probably have some sort of spring mechanism so that it pops in and out of the handle?

    Add that extra weight along with the spring latch and unless they mill the safe handle differently, I would guess that handle weights would be very uneven.

    A lot if I remember correctly. 1k+?

    The retractable clip, IMO, is just something else to break/go wrong...if it's a flipper it will get dropped, my 42 spring latch still works- but I never close it:bwah:, my 51 spring latch doesn't function anymore.

    It's not that big a deal IMO as it just hangs like a tail, but if a retractable clip breaks, now you have something integral with that handle that could be a nuisance .

    While I'm excited to see a new Bali come to market, IMO, bells and whistles aren't what will make it a success. I agree that if the Bali shown comes to market in Ti, it will be BIG money.

    Loved the Tach.

    Loved the Tach II.

    Looking forward to the Tach III.

    ***Love the latch idea...which I thought of doing (honest to goodness)
