Best Flipper for its price

Just as good of a flipper as my BM51 and better than my BRS Barebones. getting a Tachyon 3 soon and will compare it to that as well. amazing knife amazing price. Lasted the test of time for me and still 0 handle play and a smooth flipper durable as hell. only complaint is that the latch gets dinged up against the handles (not the blade) and can catch at times. but the lock up is very tight over months and it will NEVER mess up your blade. overall my best bali buy for the money yet.
Beautiful Flips

This knife is beyond beautiful! Love the feel in hand with the slight drop on the edges of the handles it just feels right.This will be replacing my replicant for the time being. It flips smooth and with no blade rub or handle play. I see people having issues with the latch resistance and that's why I gave it 4 stars. Yes it is super hard to get the latch to close with blade open and shut but overall still a wonderful buy considering most people will take the latch off anyways. I highly recommend this knife!

Compared to my other 11 balis, all benchmade, HOM, BRS, or combative edge. Itís a good knife as soon as you remove the latch. Its my only knife with a 440c blade. Edge retention drawbacks are noticeable compared to d2 or s30 in my others. I'm used to more premium blades, but tolerances are great. Love the crown on the handles and the slots are prefect. No regrets

I also had a major latch issue. Good tension closed, way too tight to latch open, 3-4x more difficult to latch open than closed. Regardless, I was ditching the latch and replacing with a paracord (two strand diamond knot) anyway.

Yes, the hardware does spin, but thatís not a problem. Iím sure thereís a how to in detail, somewhere. Just know, you usually have to remove the (bite / latched) handle, then twist the handles like theyíre hands on a clock to put enough pressure so that the hardware wont rotateÖ
Five stars

Ignore the four star review about the latch being too tight. Not the case at all. Perfectly tuned Balisong straight out of the box. No regrets buying it

I have owned a dogbite1 and can probably guess your latch problem. Try latching it before trying to unscrew it. It puts pressure on the pivot so they don't spin.

So it just came in a few hours and started flipping it and it is a Good flipper. It's a little stiff but its breaking in for me and definitely flips better now than when i got it. But a problem is that the latch is very stiff and tight, takes a lot of pressure to close or open, and gets stuck due to the design. But overall I still like the knife and it will still be in my rotation.

Edit:Another thing you might want to know, the screws are done in a way that it will spin without actually uncrewing. So I tried taking the latch off, but you cannot. There is only one side with a Torx screw and the other side just being a female nut and not anchored. So it spins a lot and doesn't actually come out which sucks because you cant disassemble like i do on my Brs Rep .
