Received the knife very fast as always with BladeHQ.

The knife itself feels good, especially considering the price. Slightly heavy, not great for flipping overall, but again for the price it's great. But quality control is pretty bad (also seeing other reviews). I'll elaborate on my issue.

I didn't buy it for flipping (I have some better balis for that), I want to make a clip for it and use it as an EDC, since blade length in my state is limited to 4" here and there's barely any balis that are under 4". Also I prefer EDC to be under $200 so that losing it won't be a big deal.

One issue I have is one of the handles is too tight, so I decided to loosen the screw as you do, but I stripped the screw within a minute (I didn't use a power tool either). I guess screw is weaker than Loctite.

When I tried to adjust Benchmade 51 I couldn't move the screw because of Loctite no matter how hard I tried (might have even used a power tool to try and loosen it), but the screw didn't strip. I finally was able to loosen it with a heat gun.

Also had to adjust a Maxace Gauss, but it wasn't even Loctited, so had no issues.

Other balis I have are: BRS Replicant CF, BRS Barebones trainer, HOM Basilisk Elite. All of them came perfectly adjusted, no handle play.

My point is:
I understand quality control costs money and this is a budget balisong, and having perfect handle adjustment requires time and manpower, which raises the cost. So to keep the cost down why not have it not Loctited at all?

For bonus points you could include a small torx tool with a small tube of Loctite, that would have been much better while keeping the costs down.
Can't beat it for the price!

Only con I have so far is it is a VERY heavy knife to flip. Other than that, it comes razor sharp and very smooth to flip.

To those that are having issues, there may be quality control issues at hand here.

But, BHQ is very good about returns if you do get a lemon.

For the price though, this knife is certainly worth looking into. Especially as an EDC.

Decent knife all around for the price, but... The blade screw was stripped out of the box and was very tight so flipping is impossible.
Very poor quality control.

Good design with poor quality control.

Major handle play. Unsolvable without modification. The sex bolts max out before the handles are even remotely tight.

Blade grind was noticeably uneven.

Latch is shoddily machined.

It's an alright knife if you modify it to work properly - which you should not have to in the first place. Wait for a quality collaborator.

Received my black g10 kimura from bladehq very quickly but was ultimately disappointed with the knife.The good news is the knife looks and feels great. The bad news is that there is a lot of handle play that couldn't be adjusted out no matter how tight you make it and both tang pins are very noticeably off center. The knife has a lot of potential but I think my kimura was a friday build. I plan on returning with hope that Bradley gets the first production hickups worked out down the road. Hope this helps somebody on the fence. 8/30/18

upon unboxing this knife to my disappointment there were many QC issues first off the knife was dirty straight out of the box as well as it was dripping with oil. Blade rub and handle movement was terrible, probably due to too much locktite on the screws. Handles just do not swing. Fit and finish over all was very sub-par. I will be sending this back.
