    Hey guys,
    I finally had some time to do a video of the Talisong. I am sorry for some mistakes I made language-wise. I took several videos and after over an hour I thought that it's okay to take this one.:snooze:

    I hope the video gives you a good impression of the knife. Feel free to ask me any questions, I hope I can answer them. :devilcorn:

    Excellent vid, thanks for sharing the close ups!! I've been following this on IG and been really excited....really want to flip one of these terribly!!! :thumbsup:

    The latch looks like it was influenced by the AB with the angled tip, looks like it would bounce up and away as the AB during flipping, does it flip up on contact??

    The guy that made that knife is so kool to talk to. What a great guy watching him do those holes on the side was awesome. Congrats on the knife and killer video. Anyone on IG check out talisong, the guy is great I'm npt sure that's his name or not but great guy to talk to. I think I'm 10 weeks out from getting one he was taking alot of people's names. I think if anyone interested.

    Sweet looking knife. It's good that he didn't do the extra holes along the handle. It'll give it some weight in the back end.

    My only question relates to its price.

    I remember reading the bali would be ~$750, but don't quote me on that. That was on his instagram or something.

    This is one gorgeous bali. Man how I wish I could afford these works of art.

    I want to flip it, yeah price wise, 700$ for a full channel custom is a great price.

    Thanks guys, the balisong is truly a nice piece! :manganr:

    Another thing about the latch I like: When latched you can squeeze the knife without having to fear that there is "too much" pressure on the tang pins, or that the handles might touch.

    I took some quick pictures, but it's raining today so the light is bad, I did play around with photoshop though.

    No idea, but I am sure as soon as a "flipper" get his hands on it, there will be more info.

    That be the price brother. I think it's a little high compared to other customs like the ex09 or MC FHM who are totally great and very fair but people and their prices these days are just rough. I have owned a lot of balis that aren't worth the money for them. Alot will disagree but the 42 ss for 4 to 5 hundred not worth it. It's always a good example I think. Just my opinion. I would think a custom like that 600$ flat be a perfect price.
