I was just getting back into flipping. All the knives that I have owned were the cheap ones that I got in the Philippines and some from amazon. When I started to shop I saw that this was available. All I can say is that I am glad I got this. It is for sure the best knife I have ever owned. If there was another one in stock I would get one again just to keep mint.

Pros- Quality, hardware, balance, craftsmanship.

Cons- Availability, latch.

I replaced the latch because it was starting to take the finish off the safe handle (like most butterfly knives). I replaced the latch with a paracord latch.

I would buy this knife again from Blade HQ, they answered all my questions and it was shipped fast!
Best Butterfly Knife

Recently purchased the Carbon Fibre Basilisk. Shipping was very fast, which is par for the course w/ Blade HQ. Knife was packed very well.

The knife is the best butterfly that I have owned. Knife is light weight & very well balanced. The blade is sleek, gorgeous and sharp right out of the box. Looks beautiful, like art in a knife should.
I would highly recommend this one for anyone looking to get a high end butterfly at a price that won't cause you another mortgage payment.
Lucked out...again

This bali is sweeeeet! This is knife is a welcomed and much appreciated addition to my stable. I am a bit intimidated to do all out flipping as of yet, but so far so good. Also, Blade HQ's service was stellar. So far, my last 3 balis were full stars. I hope the barebones comes out in the fall or I am gonna break the bank!
Even better than expected

This Bali is really fantastic. Thing oozes quality. The tolerances are such that there is basically zero play and the balance makes the knife feel like it's on autopilot while flipping. The scales provide the perfect amount of grip and slip. The handles are thicker than any other bali's I own and I find them to really help manipulate the knife. There is zero manufacturing defects and the blade came with a flawless finish and coated in renaissance wax.

The only possible downside I can see is the the blade has an extreme point which could be broken if dropped, but I am absolutely willing to accept that possibility for how beautiful this blade shape is. I don't usually like Bowie grinds much but the recurve makes this one something special and my favorite tied with the flyti zenith.

Honestly if you can get in on one of the next releases you will have one of the finest flipping balisongs in existence. I think it's considered a high end production knife but it feels like a midtech in every way. A nice one at that.
Beautiful and decent flipper

Flips okay... Not the best but is amazing looking in hand.
