    its confirmed the tool is made of pewter and the handles are guaranteed not to rust.

    Despite everything I commented and read, being a bali addict I gave one a whirl.

    The finish at the tangs seems slightly beaten but hasn't removed to the silver alum yet.

    Maybe the handles will endure a bit longer than expected. Probably because they are channel(dont drop it on concrete it will rash hardcore no doubt). Mine haven't given way(in a week .5) I beat my bali's as i'm not some proflipper that can make logs and a blade look like they flip well.

    My only comment is that the thing is LIGHT. If you need that extra momentum or just that feeling of a knife being present midflip the tach3 production isn't for you. Its really, really light feeling in the flip arena. I'm sure pros can make it look good. The midpoint balance seems there but kind of disappears while attempting serious flipping. It has a great finish and handle play is a non-issue but its really light if you get my drift.

    aluminum:devilroll:... hope this helps.

    I definitely agree about the weight.

    I can't flip it that well at all. It's so light in the handles. It looks and feels nice but just carries like, no momentum.

    apdallaround. . . don't feel ashamed I got one as well. Hate it. I think bm51 carries more momentum than this thing.

    It's not a terrible knife but is far from a great flipper. When I move to a state that will allow me to carry I'll probably use it as an EDC.

    Yea, even tho it's not my most favorite flipper (or a good flipper) by any means, it's still really nice in hand and looks great.

    I'm not hard up for my money back so I'll prob keep it. Or at least in no current hurry to sell it off. :thumbsup:

    Does it flip well?

    I someone said it doesnt flip well, but in what way? Is it a preference thing or a design issue?
