    What type of endmill did you use to radius the handles? Looks superbly smooth

    The holes down the side has grown on me...turned out to be a great design.

    Only thing I would change are the holes on the face of the handle. Need to add some depth/character to them (instead of "plain" circles).

    ***Great looking bali:thumbsup:

    Awesome balisong. :thumbsup: Looking forward to more refinement and some newer blade profiles.

    Any idea of the overall weight range?

    The holes on the face, maybe a little countersink would make them pop.

    That's it. Had a brain fart and couldn't come up with the word "countersink".

    I looked at countersinking the holes, the problem with that is how rounded the handles are, they are rounded more than any I've seen so a countersink looks a little off on this knife (to me). The weight is a little lighter than I want, I'm taking out the bottom hole and moving the hole pattern down .200 , the weigh will be 4.4-4.6 when I'm done.

    Yeah the latch is different but I'd take it off if it were mine. Nice to see someone doing channel construction. :thumbsup:

    Here is Eldon's utility blade. The bowie looks amazing, but in the end I decided for an utility.

    Just caught up on his Instagram account, great progress.

    I like both blade profiles, but like it a little more on the utility blade. Love the finish on them.
