    This isn't new. We've been talking about how balisong prices have been crazy since Hitgirl took out a butterfly knife and flipped it better than most guys on this forum.

    ***We were complaining about BM42 selling for $300 at that time

    Rant mode on...

    Ok, so here's my problem with this whole thing. Why would you spend those crazy amounts when you can just spend a few more dollars and get a custom made bali from a top knifemaker. That's the one group of people in this hobby that aren't prospering as they should from all this growth...the "REAL" custom knife makers.

    Naw... This is different. These prices are insane. $1400 for a gold bas elite and $800 for a Rep

    How is it different? At what point do you consider something insane? Double the original retail price? Triple? The fact that somebody would even pay more than $100 for a balisong is insane considering you can get a Kimura or a Lucha for under that.

    ***That's my definition of insane...more than $100

    Still making and releasing knives, yes.

    Released a few hundred Prodigy trainers in December, they were priced at $299-339, not a significant amount higher than when I sold the Prodigy in 2014 at $290.

    Like everything else, I wish I could have more to go around. Working on Elite Basilisks at the moment and building two midtech projects.
