    Have you guys seen these fucking things yet? I am so pumped, I can't wait to pick one up. I was just about to pull the trigger on a v1 barebones and then I saw the reveal on instagram, and boy am I glad I waited. I'm really hoping they softened that evil zen nipple (knowing BRS, I am sure they listened to the community and grinded that thing down a little.) Did anybody that went to blade this year get to flip one? I must know everything. My knife boner is the size of the Eiffel tower right now. Please do tell if you got the chance to hold one.

    It's a big improvement over the current one, in my opinion. Definitely interested in the trainer they showed too, wonder when that's going to be available.

    Me too. I herd the same thing that the new BB bali and trainer are better in fit and finish. Im excited about this also.

    That thing is hot. I wonder if the AB will get a tanto blade option in the future.

    I got to flip both the tanto and the trainer at blade. Having flipped a stock barebones and a barebones with rounded handles, I'd say that they're quite the upgrade in my opinion. They seemed quite a bit lighter because of the weight cut off the blades, making them flip that much better. In my opinion they felt more like a rounded barebones than a standard. The tanto blade is slim but I think it adds nice to the aesthetic. The trainer is sweet! Right up there with the squid for best trainer I've handled, although I've never handled a Hom trainer.
    Just my 2 cents.

    I haven't heard anything yet. Maybe Loosey can drop a hint?

    This is the first trainer I've strongly considered buying. It looks great and if my other brs stuff is any indication it's worth the money

    I like the look of the original BB but I'm gonna wait for the tanto instead cause It looks sick as hell. How cool is it that Loosey dropped in with some pics? Really shows how much BRS is paying attention to what we think of their products.

    Was able to play with both at Blade Show and i prefer both of these to my original BB. They felt lighter and just flipped a bit better overall
