Awesome flipper
Lucas C.
Even though this knife is a bit on the heavy side, you can't really tell since it's very well balanced. The 2.0 is a huge improvement over the 1.0 since it comes with a crowned speine and other fit and finish improvements.
Great balisong!

This knife is worth every cent. By far is my favorite to flip. Aside from a dogbite 3.1, this is the best quality knife you can get for $220.
Great Flipper
Michael P.
Best Flipper you can buy in the ~$200 Price range IMO. A lot of the issues I disliked with the original barebones are fixed. The nipple was filed down, the edge is beautifully crowned along the entire spine and the knife was lightened up...specs indicates only by 1/2 an ounce but feels like more than that in the hand. Blade is a lot thinner and narrower. Very evenly balanced. Never had a knife that fanned this easily.

I really didn't care much at all for the original barebones--would give it a 3/5. It was just too painful to flip and too tiring as well.Too many sharp edges and the spine wreaked havoc with my knuckles. It also was very blade heavy and was just too heavy for the thin and narrow handles. It liked to twist a lot between my fingers. The new version fixed almost all of the issues. Its not a high-end knife in terms of fit or finish but in terms of function there really isn't anything close to it in this price range.
Great all around

There's a reason BRS is so popular. This knife proves it! This is the perfect introductory balisong to the higher end market. Premium materials, zen pins, bounce latch, PERFECT balance, the list goes on and on! I would highly recommend the BRS Barebones 2.0
