This trainer is awsome. I've had mine for a wile and I love it. It is so much fun to flip it. When I first got it the edges on the blade were sharp and scratched my hand when I flipped it but after a short amount of time, the edges shothen up. I highly recommend this trainer
incredible trainer!

this balisong was my first trainer and i really love it! it flips really smooth and can take a beating, i would definitely suggest this trainer for anyone beginning with balisongs.
the only downside is there is a little blade rub, but its definitely forgivable.
Great investment

I'm no expert on balis (hence the trainer), but this is very well built, very smooth, and an overall great investment so you don't destroy your hand or your real bali as you learn. So far it's survived a number of drops with no ill effects.
Decent

Its good for learning on a budget. The steel isnt the greatest. It has given me some pretty gnarly steel splinters on chaplins and arial misses.
If I could give this 6 stars I would

This trainer is perfect. The fit and finish are great, its light, very easy to adjust for play and/or speed. The smoothness for $50 is ridiculously smooth.
I noticed someone said they couldnt remove the latch screws.... just use a torq driver on one side.... and use the wrench on the opposite. Regarding the latch... its not a spring but a partial springt and clip clip latch..... push it over the handle til it clicks..press the handles when closed it pings open. its very solid and satisfying.
Im going to be buying a quality balisong knife very soon but for training you cant beat this. It also comes in a really cool magnetic closing box.
if youre after a good quality trainer that has great g10 handles and superbly well made at an excellent price, look no further..... this thing is superb....and yes...better than bear and son
please make a knife version boker... Id buy in a second
update: found the blade version 440C, sold in europe....i would rather have got it from bladehq but they dont have it.....sorry but i will not post the company or link....thats unfair to bladehq, and against their policy for reviews
GREAT but the latch...

This knife flips great, looks great and sounds great. And the latch works well too. However, for some reason, y'all or Boker Plus Loctited the screw that holds the latch. I've tried everything I can to remove it but I can't. But other than that this knife fantastic.
Best value trainer

For the price, you can't beat this trainer. Very smooth and balanced at this price point. 4 stars as it does not match flipping of squid, hom prodigy, or barebones trainers.
Amazing

Nice design,good weight, flips really well.I just got it so not having any hardware or latch issues at the moment. Only complaint would be that the trainer blades edges are sharp.2000 grit sand paper fixed that problem.
Feels like a good flipper

I just got it yesterday, so review may change a little, but boker quality is so consistent that there's nothing much to complain about.

The tool that comes with is handy,

Locking the bali closed(or just applying tension with a manual squeeze of the handles) and then tightening seems to be the only way to get the screws tight when the bearings are spinning freely, but there is not much need to overtighten these.

After beating it up a couple adjustments are useful and necessary, so just try to find the sweet spot between over tight bearings and fine tuning.

I own a bear and son 40dollar bali, and this boker feels nicer to flip almost like i went from entry level to something more high end for 10 dollars more.

The false blade has sharp not sharpened corners so there is still a sense of "oh shit" when you grab the "blade" by mistake, so thats good for my purposes of training. I thoroughly enjoy that the false edge has a bite, i have pinched myself once and bruised and multiple times been reminded of the cut of a live bali which coaxes me to respect the blade still even as a trainer.

Bhq got it to me quick as well, overall I'm satisfied with my investment.
Boker please make a live version of this trainer and send it to me for free advertisement.
If i had an extra one of these on me at all times, it would inevitably end up being a gift or perhaps even a hustle due to how bedazzled people are with this modern yet retro fidget flipper. Boker, make me a salesman.

Update: i have loc tited the safe handle pivot and now this thing needs minimal adjustments.
The latch does this weird thing tho where it gets forced well past the opened position and requires a breakdown and rebuild to put the latch back in the proper position, so i wouldnt recommend loctiting the small screws on the bite handle unless you can figure out how to remove the latch and don't want it on anymore. I can't seem to get the pocket clip screws out(probably because it's designed that way or im just a noob) so i just decided not to modify it that much, i enjoy the spring latch anyway....i would only change the pocket clip around to the other side of the same handle if i could, but since i loctited the safe, i have not had any issues with the latch except for what i listed above....keeping it well tuned is best for an optimally functional latch lock in closed position
Blade rub and few issues

Itís a great Bali the g10 is amazing and holds up better than my bbbarfly, however it has a lot of blade rub and it scratches up the blade bad as well as the latch not working well and one of my zen pin screws isnít exactly falling or but itís piping out and back in. Loctite is recommended.
best bali under 100 dollars

This balisong has really impressed me. I have used and abused this trainer. I have dropped it on super hard surfaces and it is still holding up. I am so far really impressed. Nothing and i mean NOTHING beats it for the price. If you are looking to get into flipping this is the only way to go. Don't waste your time and money on cheap balis or balisongs from bear and son or bear ops. they fall apart within days of use!!! I highly recommend this flipper
It perfect!

At first when I got it. It was small but then a couple of weeks flipping it and doing all these cool moves with it I started getting use to it and it's so smooth when you flip it I recommend people buying this. It's the best balisong I have and I love it and it's so perfect for me. And if you haven't bought it yet buy it right now because I give th8s thing a 100%.
Good for beginners

Really nice trainer for the money. Good weight and balance.
5 stars for value because you can get much better trainers, but they are no where near this price point.

I used a little loctite on the everything, it has been taking a beating, and still feels solid.
Fantastic Trainer

Having been flipping for only 3 or 4 months, I'm not an expert when it comes to trainers or live blades for that matter. However, for only 50 dollars, the quality of the Boker Plus is outstanding in comparison to the other 3 trainers I've owned, all of which fell apart in a day. I've been flipping this non-stop for two days now, and it hasn't developed any play whatsoever, and the latch works great.

Pros:
Great product for the price
Sturdy
Works as advertised
Pocket clip doesn't hinder flipping
No tang pins = no looseness or odd spacing
Flips like BUTTER

Cons:
If I could change one thing about this knife, it would be the hard 90 degree edges on the blade. It's not a particular hamartia, but I think the knife would be more or less perfected if the edges were more rounded so that they'd be less abrasive to the hands.
Pretty DARN good for the price

I probably have 5 balisong trainers. This one by far would be my top 3. It comes with a key wrench to tighten or loosen screws if you need to. It flips smooth and it feels sturdy. 4 stars because It's a little on the light side, but not an issue. the pocket clip is awesome! For this price, its a steal. I highly recommend this trainer!
GREAT KNIFE!

I have flipped this knife for about two weeks now and it held up really well. First, my only real complaint is how soft the g-10 handle scales are, otherwise, there really are no downsides for the $50 price tag. There are also some reviews saying how sharp the edges on the holes were one the g-10, but I don't really find that a downside, it actually makes it easier for me to choker fan with it. Finally, the last downside is that the handles may be a little short for some people, but I personally think the length is fine for flipping. Now, for the good things, first of all the zen pins on it are very sturdy and clicky which is reassuring because I was afraid the materials were low quality. Also, the fit and finish on it is very good, there is no rattling in it, but there is some blade rub on it very minimal though, most likely because of how little space there is between the blade and the liners. Overall this knife is very smooth and is a great deal for what it is.

I removed the latch once i first got it, but it was a pretty good tension latch like the one on the BM-51.

I was looking for a good entry level trainer, but I didn't want to spend $200. This is definitely it. The other cheap trainers I've gotten wouldn't last more than a few days, or hours. I feel like this one will last quite a while.

Another reviewer reported a bad spring latch, but mine works flawlessly.

I really hope Boker Plus expands on this line, and adds live blades, color options, and maybe even replaceable blades.
Great value

Zen pins. g10 handles. All maintainable screws; no metal pins. Pocket clip. Only 50 bucks.

I really needed a legit trainer to appease my obsession at the work place. All the Walmart trainers are terrible. I needed something better that was not ridiculously priced.
The color is a great addition, it gives it more of a "toy" appearance, less threatening to bystanders.

Complaints:
The holes in the blade are not buffed at all, they are extremely abrasive to the knuckles.
The latch busted the first time I dropped it, which didnt matter because it was absolutely completely useless anyway and did not even come close to actually holding it shut. I planned to replace it with paracord before it even broke.
Also, the blade is definitely "brushed metal" nothing close to "Satin"
