    Hey guys I'm sure some of us have had more of a qualm than others, but I'm basically always on the hunt for my perfect EDC Bali. take a look at my wants and let me know if there's something I'm missing out there... ld like to avoid the custom route due to #1 so lets save those responses lol

    1. under $200... thats about the price tag that would start getting me angry if it was misplaced or stolen.. used pieces don't scare me either. just not beat... so consider that price tag

    2. under 4''-- I know its not CA legal anyways but im not a huge fan of huge blades... this has probably been the biggest hurdle. id still like medium flippability but im not a MAJOR trickster

    3. it may just be vanity, but id like a real blade, not a clone... if its a reputable clone (oxymoron?) then I may consider it?

    any opinions welcome! thanks you ol' horn heads

    BM32 but it is very light.
    Atropos has a few models that are within that price and size.

    sexual favors are a positive for both, thats hardly fair.

    if you offered sexual favors and i get to punch you in the nose directly after, i would gladly hand you a small fly.

    I was going to suggest the dogbite, but it sounds like he's looking for a 4" bali, not a 4" blade.

    It's been so long that I had to Google image what a smallfly looked like, only to realize I have BOTH a smallfly live blade and smallfly trainer right next to my desk that I sit at every day.

    I honestly stopped reading after this first point. That limits you to 1 or 2 balisongs.

    ***Personally...I love the Kimura

    Go for an OG kimura......K7 was my first flipper. The new kimura handles feel super heavy to me and feels awkward just doing basic openings.
