    Hopefully will be enough for everyone. Looking to release a production run around 350 of them.

    Pricing should be just a hair below the Specter. Release time might be the end of the year, fingers crossed! Or early next year.

    My thoughts on this knife.

    1. My personal perceptions is that the tip is not any scarier or more fragile than the barebones. The cost is a bit higher so there is that to consider.
    2. The knife flips damn well - it reminds me of a slightly thicker carbon fiber AA in regards to balance.
    3. The carbon fiber seemed to handle drops fine enough.
    4. Perfectly suitable flipper straight out of the box.

    If you were in the market for a balisong flipper this one is a good one. In my personal collection it slotted in right below the AA and Alpha Beast. Don't let the tip scare you - if you flip your knives your knives get damaged. This one doesn't seem to get damaged any easier than any other one. It hit the ground (slate tiles) multiple times and kept flipping with minimal damage.

    Some people will baby the knife and that's there perogative but that's also a damn shame as this one is a fairly decent flipper.

    TL:DR if you like the Arc Angel you'll like the Basilisk R.

    Every day is a challenge knowing that each one is but a small step towards the Ti bas R drop.

    Hopefully good news comes soon...

    If I remember right, Jerry told us that basiR will lunch in 1Q of 2016 then basiR eventually lunched in middle of June.
    This one will be sold early 2Q this year?
