I Absolutely LOVE This Thing! Its An Amazing Flipper, Pretty Sharp From Factory, But Not As Sharp As The 51 I Would Say, But Thats Fine, Its FAR More Than Sharp Enough, Only Two Small Downsides, The Tiniest Littlest Piece Of The Tip Broke Off When I Dropped It On The Step Of An Aluminum Ladder, But I Think The Ladder Got More Damage Than The Knife, And The Other Thing, After Flipping For An Extended Period Of Time, The Titanium Scales On The Bottom Corners Started Flattening Out From The Latch Hitting Them, Easily Fixed With A Flat File Or Possibly Even A Nail File, The Only Reason Its Noticeable Is The Scales Will Start Holding On To The Latch And Not Letting It Swing Freely, Overall, The Best Knife Ive Ever Purchased, Well Worth The Price!
where is the quality assurance?

Received my replicant after waiting forever with preorder. Knife showed up with blade scratched to hell and spine chewed up. Also way dull out of the box. I sent it back and received a replacement fairly quick. But I told them not to bother if it wouldn't be sharp. It was about as sharp as a butter knife. And blade was all scratched up Also. Pretty weak replacement! Very disappointed! My buddies had same problems. So disappointed with BRS. But I kept it and completely modded it. Anodized the liners after polishing them and polished and sharpened the blade. It's now a nice knife and flips well. Too bad I had to spend so much money and time to make it decent. The Microtech tachyon 2 is a far superior knife, hands down. Replicant gets four thumbs down.
Wish I could rate this above 5 stars

Best balisong I own for flipping. It's a tad lighter than the AB (and has a crowned blade), but carries rollovers very well. It twirls quickly, moreso a jack of all trades bali. It's the most unique looking bali I've yet seen, and has that BRS balance. After flipping it nonstop for well over a year, it has practically a millimeter of play. Great blade steel too, and the texturing on the G10 makes it easy to grip (especially if your hands sweat when you flip), but it's smooth. One thing to note is that it doesn't come very sharp, you need to screw up big time to cut yourself while flipping this. This is the balisong to buy. Not worth buying a 51 in comparison, because this is made for flipping and you can tell, especially because when new the prices are so similar. Other great thing to note: the zen pins will never flatten out so you'll have factory spacing forever. Not a fan of the latch being stainless steel, but most balis have that anyway. Very secure, it won't pop out during EDC (if you use your rep for that), and doesn't stall up (latch has a pointed shape). Only thing I dislike is that the bump on the tang for the zen pins can be pinchy until you adjust your flipping a little, but that happens subconsciously. All zen pin balis are similar in this way.
Best Flip.

Perfect weight for the size. Flips nice and fast. Helped me progress my flipping a lot. The 42 looks better but in my opinion the Replicant flips way better. It tends to pinch when you rollover too close to the pivots but you have plenty of handle space to compensate for that. BRS is one of the most attentive knife companies. Someone asks a question about one of their products in a small facebook group/forum/instagram and they are answering within 6 hours. Perfect product, perfect customer service. I don't think I've ever flipped a balisong without losing the tip so that didn't really bother me.
Great rollovers

Knife flips really well and spins even better! Tip of knife is making contact with spacer block on the safe handle chipping the tip off. Already being handle by BRS, disappointed that I had to send it back right away and up to 6 weeks without my knife. I am sure it will be handled and will want to give 5 stars after the issues is corrected.
Should have bought 2.

This is my first BRS product and it is of the finest quality, I knew it would be. The knife looks wicked, it feels great in the hand, the blade shape is really cool trust me it grows on you quickly. The knife is worth every penny. However the tiniest piece of the tip broke off after it took a 2-3 foot fall to the carpet when I was flipping it. So be careful and maybe buy 2.
For the flipping enthusiast

This knife flips well, is well made, and sharp out of the box. The only reason I review it at 4/5 stars is because the tip chipped within two days of flipping over carpet. I should note that the chip is so minor that it has to be pointed out to notice it but it's still with mentioning.
