AB3.0 Amazing flipper
Justin W.
This knife is absolutely great for what it's made for, flipping, I've owned one for over a year now and I beat it up, yet it's still kicking like factory, good stuff BRS
OK flipper but bottom level titanium and machining..
Todd W.
This is some of the cheapest titanium I've seen in a knife costing above $50. Some of the cheapest machined Ti you'll ever see too that hide none of the bottom level Ti extrusion processing. Get a WE or Kizer and you'll see. Flips OK at least but BRS is making the big $$$ off this one. You fell for the marketing as did I. Enjoy it. You can still sell on the used market for about what you paid. Praise Jesus.
One of the best production Balisongs ever

If the Balisong you have now was less than 200$ and not a Kimura, then you are missing out my friend.

Once you get past the 200$ price point , the knives start becoming quality. And this is one of the best knives out there.

Handle weight is more balanced throughout than a Replicant, but more handle-end biased than a Hom Specter or FlyTi.

Large hardware will last forever, is harder to strip, and bushings make this thing swing smooth as silk.

The only thing I'll be doing to mine is getting the handle edges slightly rounded, but that is 100% personal preference.
Simply put: best production balisong ever made.

There's not really much more to say. Balance is perfect. The knife looks wicked. Materials are amazing. Will probably last a lifetime. The 42 has nothing on this.
Nick S.
Perfect balance and weight in the back of the handles to make rollovers and chaplins go on autopilot. Please note that this is the production AB, so Matt M's comment that it has been made/tuned by hand is inaccurate. The weight is light enough for good twirling as well. I enjoy how the chevrons are where the balance is located, and how the chevrons' cuts include the sides of the handles to actually aid with grip (most balisongs are not grippy on the sides, and any slotting or milling only would aid grip in the first rollover, unlike on this design). Love how the latch doesn't stall up. Great dimensions, very comfortable, etc. Bottom line: buy one.
Fantastic butterfly knife!
Matt M.
Perfect balance and weight! It is all made and finished by hand and I love that, it just feels like quality. I really love how you can tighten the pivots all the way down without it effecting the flippability (new word.) Much better than my old BM51. Look up Linos Sheathworks if you would like a great kydex sheath for it.

It flips beautifully as well which is the most important thing!
Solid. VERY solid.
Zach C.
It is worth the hype. If you were on the fence and it becomes available, just buy it. You won't regret it.

This one always ends up in my hand
Favorite flipper!!!!!!
Cody W.
I LOVE this knife! It is my favorite flipper, speaking of, it flips like a BEAST (no pun intended). But I did have one problem with it. I think the heat treat has been done improperly, but it shouldn't be a problem because of BRS's awesome warranty! Love this knife though. I definitely recommend it to everyone who can buy it. Worth the money.
Alpha Beast
Jakob S.
I love this knife!!! I had pretty high expectations for it and it exceed all my expectations! I would highly recommend it to any flipper or collector. It is incredibly smooth, flips very well and is weighted beautifully. Before this Bali I had flipped the Benchmade 51 and the Bear OPS B-201 and it well exceeded either of those knifes in smoothness weight distribution and build quality. A must buy for anyone who is into balisongs and has the money to spend.
Philip T.
Everything I expected and more.
