Zero handle play. Flawless fit and finish. Tolerances are perfect. Blade is ground beautifully and sharp as hell. Screws are all flush and loctited. Machining is flawless and perfectly symmetrical. The satin finishing on both the blade and handles are nearly mirrored and look and feel fantastic.

The latch lockup is strong but not too hard to disengage. Tang pins are extra big and sturdy. The blade spine is chamfered for comfort while flipping. Spacers are large and weighty and give the knife fantastic momentum.

The dimensions for this knife are near perfect in a balisong. Everything about this knife is what all balisong makers should strive for.

Kudos for providing a work of functional art Jerry Hom.
Wow. Just.... wow.

This knife is absolutely beautiful. It may be the most aesthetically beautiful knife I own. Everything about its appearance is outstanding.

The tolerances are equal to its aesthetics; there is absolutely ZERO play in the handles. It swings smoothly and freely out of the box (I haven't flipped it properly yet) with no drag at all, and the sides of the blade never come into contact with the insides of the handles.

The blade grind is perfect, in both​ sides. The edge is razor sharp, with no burrs.

The balance is neutral. I couldn't find a bias towards the bands or the handle ends. It may take some time to get used to the balance, as I'm used to my Alphabeast, which is rear-biased.

Truth be told, I may not flip it that often, and I will likely never carry it. It's just too nice, hahahaha. I've never had a high end collector's knife before. This may not be a custom, but to me, it's as close as it gets.

Incredible piece of functional art. A+, Mr. Hom.
