I've owned quite a few balisongs. This Bali was the first Bali I ever bought. That's where my first qualm is. Price: This Bali is super overpriced. These should be selling for $250 max. If you want one buy it second hand. The best way to do this is on the app Instagram. Use #balisongsale. You can buy one brand new in the box for $200. This brings me to my second complaint, flipping: I bought a 6x for flipping. Big mistake on my end. When it is marked for EDC they mean it. This Bali is a tank on the weight side (Bad thing). If you want a knife to flip buy a BRS Replicant. The rep weights in at 4.9 ounces stock. If you want a heavier knife you can buy new spacers for the rep. If you don't like the scales, you can buy new scales, for the rep. If you want to adjust the rep you can do it for under $50 a mod, but if you want to mod the 6x your options are new handles/scales. These are almost solely made by flytanium. They cost over $200. Even then they don't flip as well as the BRS Replicant. So now you have an almost $600 knife that doesn't outperform any knife that is in that price range (other knives in this price range include the Maxace Pelican, BRS Alpha Beast(One of the best knives for the money), HOM knives.) When talking about knives for flipping there is something called tap and play. Tap is when the blade contacts the inside of the handles. Play is when the handles shift apart. The 6x has tons of both. The 6x series of Balis run on a washer system. Most CCC's (Cheap China Crud) run on only washers too. If you want a quality knife look for something on bushings or bearings. The rep runs on bushings and washers. If the Rep is flipped like crazy it can develop tap and play, but can easily be fixed by replacing the washers and bushings. If the 6x has tap, you can't fix it. Even with the flyti handles it still has these problems. The Replicant doesn't suffer from any of these problems. On the topic of this being a carry knife, the pouch. The pouch that comes with this knife is literal trash. After carrying my 6x around in the pouch for a week the pouch started to frey. After another week the beltloop fell off and almost all of the stitches came undone. Whatever you do, don't trust the pouch.

I canít stress enough how well the craftsmanship and quality of any Benchmade knife is. To top off the icing, BHQ price for this Bali is unbeatable. Best customer service and fast shipping. Thanks BHQ!! Whip it fast and leave the bloody knuckles in the past.

This is certainly a heavy duty knife and feels really solid! But itís hard to flip because ifís so heavy, the D2 steel is prone to rusting and $340?! Címon Benchmade thatís not worth it at all! There are way better knives out there for the same price or less.
Don't flip like a pro

I flip fairly decent, but it's not a big hobby for me. This knife is amazing as far as weight, blade strength/style. That d2 steel is something to be proud of. I'm in love with the large Bowie style and wish BM would put it into a folder.

I just got this knife today, I went from a BearOps blue raindrop to this. Lets go over the Pros

PROS: This knife flips very smoothly, I love the weight to the handles. When you first swing it open you know that you are flipping a high quality balisong. Rollovers are a breeze with this thing. When out of the box it is INSANELY SHARP. I cut myself when doing behind the eight ball with barely coming in contact with the blade and blood was everywhere. But its nice that the blade is so damn sharp because you don't even notice the cut because it is so clean. What's also nice is the weight is very even. You also wont ever have to worry about blade play when the pen is closed, that sucker makes it impossible. Compared to most Balisongs that clink a lot this one is pretty quite when flipping.

CONS: If you are not wanting a heavy Balisong, this is not the knife for you. I think people exaggerate when they say "its like flipping a brick" which actually scared me off at first. The weight isn't anything to be scared of. But like I said if you are looking for a lighter Balisong, I suggest going for a 51. Another thing is compared to the 40 series, the handles are shorter. Now this isn't really a BAD thing but it is more dangerous because you have this crazy sharp knife and these small handles. You need to be careful (I have already cut myself) Another thing I can say is its hard to close it with the pen. It takes a lot to close. but that's the reason there is no blade play when it is closed, its pretty tight! Those are all the cons I can really think of


But all together this Bali is worth the buck. But like I said if you aren't wanting a Bali with weight, this is not for you. If you do, you have found the right one. I would like to just remind also that PLEASE be careful when flipping this Bali, this thing is crazy sharp and will cut with barely any contact. But easy a 5/5 star knife
