For a butterfly knife, this guy is long and thick. Its size does not reflect its weight though. It feels like your flipping a slightly heavier version of the benchmade 51 with thick handles. Honestly if this were scaled down and thinned out it would be one of my favorites.

I like balis that range from 4-6 oz with a blade length as close to 4.5 inches as I can get.

The overall size of this makes you flip slower which may be great for beginners, but for seasoned flippers it'll turn into an issue (unless you have XL hands then you may be fine)

I also don't like how square the handles are near the pivot. It makes it difficult to roll between your fingers. That being said, this is ideal for beginners so they don't have to be too particular on where they place their fingers or the motion of their moves in general.

The overall fit and finish is absolutely amazing with minimal handle play. The tuck away latch is also one of my favorite features as I usually end up removing them.

This is a true flipper's knife. And for that reason I'll give it 5 stars. My gripes come down to my own personal preferences and in the scheme of things don't reflect what this bali offers. It's an amazing knife and if you're thinking about picking one up... STOP THINKING AND DO IT NOW!!!
my first high end balisong.....and....WOW

I have a bunch of balisongs by boker, maxace, etc. This was my first foray into the "over $350" range.
You really do get what you pay for with this knife.
The materials, as you would expect from a knife in this price range, are top notch. The fit and finish are flawless (trust me, Ive gone over it with a magnifying glass).
What did strike me however, was the weight.
This is a LONG balisong.....10.5 inches of long! But its very light. It makes for a very unique flipping experience.
I like to flip slowly, and because of the light weight I can do so. The knife came razor sharp however, so you would still end up with some tasty cuts if you miss a trick or accidently use the latch handle.
The latch is very unique, it slides into the handle, this causes no weigh issue whatsoever and its a really great way for people who do not like to keep the latch on their knife.
The stonewash with purple inlay looks fabulous....I think it looks better than the slightly higher priced plus version.
The balance is fantastic, I can do all my tricks with no issues at all, including chaplins. There is an absolute minimum of blade play and no tap. Quite impressive for a knife that does not use bearings.....the bushing system is smooth and pretty much flawless.
If you want to splash out on at least one (almost) $400 balisong, this should be the one to gete.
Jerry Hom has innovated a fantastic latch combined with a lightweight big balisong with top end materials and a wonderful finish, and its utterly fantastic.
Excellent Bali

Honestly the best bali I've ever held. The fit and finish is amazing. There's virtually zero play, and it flips like a dream.
