    I can't say I'm a fan. Looks like something cheap just imo at least.
    I also like the holes in handles for grip

    There's an older thread about these, or it may be in the Tach2 preorder thread.?

    The extra handle weight is very, very, nice. It does flip better than the original IMO. I love mine. There was a mention of the handle being blank would allow you to customize it how you like, but I left mine solid and prefer it that way to flip.

    I would like them if I was into modifying knives you know blank slate and all, but since I am not to heavy into modifying knives I would buy the one with the fancy handles already done:manganr:

    I'm not sure how Microtech justifies charging the exact same price as the regular model. The solid model probably has at least 25% less machining, you would think it would be priced accordingly :ropeman:

    Ford is releasing a new truck without a transmission, they figure you can just get the one you want and put it in yourself... same price though.

    That's what I would have thought! Did you try the BB spacers in it yet?

    Have anyone of you flipped one? I thought we were buying Balis to flip? If that's the case the solid flips better than the original, IMO.

    Im not saying it wont flip, but I cant justify paying the same price for less work. I EDC all of my Balis, so flipping comes in to play with overall performance.

    Could you justify paying more for more material on your knife? For a better functioning Bali? The concern should be end result, not what occurred to get there IMO.

    Look at all the guys buying spacers for the original Tach2. The solid doesn't need them because the weight is there. Seems like saving money to me.

    That and the fact that there are only 18 solid handle black blade Bowies, seems like a deal to me.:thumbsup:

    I never got a tach2 because I thought the handles were ugly. These handles ar pretty lame too, but it would be cool to see what some people do to them. I might just pick one up if I can find the funds.

    cant say how they flip but even though I want a bali to flip I would be lying if the look doesn't matter to me. Its a all in one package. If it flips great but it looks like utter dogshit it wont be a 10/10 for me.

    at the same time if it flips great but falls apart easily or has a defect or problem with its construction, like latch keeps getting stuck or the knife is misaligned that also wont be a 10/10

    in my eyes to have a great bali its got to be a all in one package. Built well, will last, no manufacturing problems in details, looks purrrty, balanced well, and flips like a dream :chuck:

    but that just may be me
