    I was interested but completely forgot about the TiBones drop. So, who got one? If you have already received it then what do you think? I noticed that @bali_n0ob said he got one on IG.

    @bali_n0ob got one and didn’t share it here with us?

    it’d be a lot cooler if he did

    Got mine today. Love it.

    my only disappointment is the handle thickness, what was most unique about the bbv2 for me was the handle thinness. the ti bones is thicker than the v1ss bones, but retains hole pattern of the v2ss. i'm assuming the new thickness was a reaction to it being too light when switching to ti. i'd have like it better if maybe if they'd used the v1 hole pattern to maintain weight and keep the handles thinner.

    regardless of my preferences, it might be the best bali brs has made so far.

    and oh yeah, minimal play, no blade rub, no bushings. bonkers.

    v2 on left, v1 in the middle, ti on the right.

    I gotta come back and say I love it again.


    Its the lightest bali they make, while at the same time, it has the longest handles they make!


    The following pic is here to highlight handle length differences

    This next pic for the pop off latch my friend made me. I haven't noticed others using ones like these yet, so figured i'd share.

    I think the V2 is the best looking blade BRS makes. The thing just looks wicked.

    i haven’t been real motivated towards balis lately but that tibones looks worth a try (too bad they prob wont restock for a bit)

    yes but when they do, the next batch should have bushings. so maybe worth the wait?
