    Is there even a photo of the production model or production prototype? So far I've only seen the lame Marfione versions.

    They're not out just yet.

    Yeah, there's photos and demos out there on youtube. At least, I thought the ones in the video were the prod version. I did see the Marfione version but that's way too spendy for me.

    I've never seen the production version. All the vids I've seen have been the Marfione.

    Post a link to the production T3 please.

    1) The T3 is not a true custom as they are not made by a single individual but are priced as a custom
    2) The maker of the Talisong (Eldon Talley) is here at JD, you can speak to him anytime about anything with the knife or work. Try that with a Microtech.
    3) Touched on this some in #2, customer service is well below good with Microtech. If you have a warranty issue, Eldon is available right here.
    4) The Talisong is priced less than the T3 (currently semi available)
    5) Microtech has a reputation of low quality material, I assure you from first hand experience the Talisong is made with top grade materials.
    6) Eldon is a part of the community, Microtech doesn't even have a representative that sometimes talks to us or addresses concerns
    7) Personal preferences, but the T3 looks like crap compared to the Talisong....
    8) The Talisong Fl was developed for flippers with input from actual flippers.
    9) You have options with the Talisong, blade shape and ano color options....only one choice with the T3 (ugly or ugly)

    5) Microtech has a reputation of low quality material, I assure you from first hand experience the Talisong is made with top grade materials.

    My "custom" has only been lightly flipped, over a bed at all times, the bearing in the back of the blade has fallen out. It still flips fine, but I did pay that custom price. I would not mind enough to tell everyone if this had happened on a "production" model, but it sorta sucks to pay a grand for something and have it start falling apart with light use.
    I have never tried to send a knife back to Microtech, but I have heard of the reputation they have of customer service and whatnot.

    That being said: I am eagerly awaiting the Talisong.:devilcorn:

    There's always the JDBA bali. It'll have fucking M390 for the blade. Why is no one excited for that channel ti bali? I feel like none of you understand how good M390 is.
