    This one looks pretty bad ass to me! Only thing I don't like, is that these weren't available when I bought my regular AB in the last drop a few months ago. Had I known these were coming out, I would have held out! I wish I could afford to snatch up one of every balisong that appeals to me but considering these grades of knives are equivalent in price to some mid grade firearms I just can't justify having multiples. I will have to watch on the sidelines and enjoy my AB 3.0 as my one and only in this price range. Maybe some day!

    Will there be a release of the standard AB in the near future?

    Having just rounded my handles and comparing pics it isn't a whole lot of material coming off, I would wager the weight difference would be negligible.

    So now I ask myself, Infinity now or roll the dice and wait for the 87? Decisions...

    Not trying to tell you what to do... but if you pass on any AB in favor of the 87 you are setting yourself up for disappointment. In my humble opinion.

    Looks great to me, comes custom for bitch hands already, ill take 1. lol. I think its great that they offer something that doesn't need to be modded for the people that like the smooth handles.

    I was thinking the same thing. Ive been playing with a flyty 51 for about a year and recently got a AB. the AB flips great but i'm used to the rounded handles and it seems like I can do certain tricks better with the 51. The infinity looks like the perfect in between, I'm hoping it is, ill find out soon enough.

    Any chance we'll get a review? Picked one up to check out for myself, but I always love hearing your thoughts on new balis.

    SJ shred it and post it please. people like "watching you" HA

    this AB is worth it. i know people like the AB for the angles on the handles but a rounded AB just seems awesome.

    *side note to the 87 commented: the weird handle shape killed the 87 for me. if they would have kept the traditional 4x handle but with forged ti they would have absolutely hit it out of the park... however they did not. mcfly87

    Yes, very god chance.

    The blade heavy aspect mixed with the handle shape.

    But starting to feel a little off on the order. haven't gotten my e-mail form BHQ yet. So we'll see but yeah, gonna get tons of flipping time. Clip and S35VN means it'll probably be my new work knife.

    Knifecenter also has AB infinity in stock, both standard and alt blade variants.

    wtf, infinity standard blade and alt blade? damn i must not be paying attention. i figured bhq's standard infinity was it. i figured wrong. i'm glad i snagged a standard blade but perhaps if the handle weight is way lighter than an ab3.0 the alt may feel more well rounded on the infinity as the blade material is less. "speculation"

    I try to pay pretty close attention too and had no clue at all that Knifecenter was gonna have them at all, let alone alt blades. Alt blade might have even been preferable for normal use with the reinforcement the tip gets form that profile....

    Welp, My standard one is on it's way form Blade HQ and that is the life I lead. Still stoked regardless.

    Price point is alright considering the rounded handles (not a fan, standard looks way cleaner), crowned spine, and pocket clip. Looks like they have a decent amount because they are still in stock although they have both standard and alt blade, really not a fan of alt blade even though I have a rep alt blade.... only cause I couldn't find an og blade. Get them now if you like the look! They won't last long, probably going to sell here for at least $500 when they go out of stock
