Very poor knife. I purchased a $10 ebay that was noticeably better in every way. Pins are not replaceable nor can they be tightened after a point, so it finally becomes very loose. I would save your money and put it toward a better quality balisong.
Poor all around

I will say I did not buy from blade hq. I bought local.

The knife isn't much, but what can you expect? Seems reasonable enough for the price. I knew about the handle cracking issue when I bought it. the handles cant take the force of themselves alone, not even dropping it. a perfect flipper could only use it until it destroyed itself.

So its not a great flipper, so what? It's still a knife, and a decent edc right? Wrong. The steel isnt an issue, some of my best knives of all time have been 154CM. but none of them had such a mild heat treat. edge bent over itself with very little use. The time involved to keep it cutting is not worth your time.

TL;DR

If you are a serious user, or plan to use this for anything, don't proceed. This product does not meet the requirements to be effective for long.

If you read this and still want to buy it, go ahead! I would buy another one, just to have another toy.

As a knife-No

As a balisong-No

As a toy- By all means.
Good first balisong

Out of the box it was a little stiff, but loosened up nicely after being flipped around for about half an hour. I wish they had used a slightly harder handle material so that it wouldn’t get dented by the tang pin and the latch would latch tighter, but overall for 30 dollars it flips great!
The pin that connect the blade and handle break

I have this knife for 2 weeks, I been flipping it a lot lately, but I only drop it once on the wood floor,every time I drop it on my bed, today morning, I was flipping it, and the pin snaped, it just break, the pin that connect the blade and the handle break, and now I'm trying to contact bear and son to send back my knife and repair it, not recommend it, if you want to buy a balisong, a good one the can last you for lifetime, go buy BRS.

This knife is great. It's a great butterfly for someone who is just getting started in flipping. It's not too expensive and it's made in the USA so the quality is pretty good. Mine was a little tight when I got it but once I used it a bit it was working great. The rivets make it a little harder to lubricate but your still able to.
Great bali

I am no expert with butterfly knives but this is fun enough to play around with but not for serious tricks.
Awesome knife

First of all this knife arrived very quickly. After pulling it right out of the box it flipped beautifully thanks to already being oiled. Along with being oiled it also came sharp right out of the box, passed the note card test with flying colors. The one thing I would change about it is instead of pins I would use screws. This is the fourth butterfly I've owned and was very impressed considering it's only $30.
Good First Flipper

You pretty much get what you expect from a $30 balisong. When it first came the bite handle was too tight on the tang and wouldn't freely open or close. Funny thing is, when I dropped it trying to do a trick, I dropped it on a cement floor and it landed right on the bite handle; it loosened it right up and it has been perfect ever since. It's got more blade play than I would want, but that's what you get with pins instead of screws.

Overall: 4/5.

Fun to flip, decent build quality for the money, you just have to play around with it before it becomes nice and loose.
