good for the price, but the zen pins like to wiggle themselves out, so you can either retighten them with your finger before and after every flipping session or take them out and locktite them or sum
Best balisong for the price
It just got delivered at my door, a little adjustments and pretty light. great quality, flips great and the design is amazing!
This is my third balisong collection and first plastic one and 100% recommend it for collectors and for beginners too!
Very fun to flip for a plastic Balisong and once again, sweet design.
sweet price and customer service!
I recommend it and the website in general.
it came quickly and the customer service was great, the balisong itself is very good best option for beginner. only one issue is that i wasn't able to remove the pivot ms for tuning, they keep turning but not loosening aside from its all good.
The balisong itself is super amazing quality, just some taP and play. Please check out my Youtube channel: Twirl Flipping
The balisong is balanced really well, almost the right amount of handle bias (could be a bit more in my opinion), but it is way too light to be a decent flipper. Chaplins are extremely hard to keep going and rollovers also lose the balance really easily. The handles are also too slippery for anything besides the most basic tricks. Some texture or chamfering is much needed on the sides, but faces of the handles could use some modifying too. The handles also feel too thin and should be beefed up a little, besides, considering it is an aluminum balisong, it would help with solving the weight problem. The "bite side" indicator on the blade is decent, not too sharp, but lets you know when you have messed up. I'm also kinda impressed by the bushing system, didn't expect such good tuning from a knife in this price range. When tightened with full force, one handle wants to get stuck a bit but with the right tuning and some locktite to keep the screws from coming loose, the knife flips pretty well. Hardware is shit tho, almost as bad as the cheapest chinese knives. Nobody likes stripped screws:) Play is decent, no complaints about that and the tap seems to only develop when blade bends too much from dropping the knife. Pretty good tolerances, I would say. The knife came in the promised timeframe, had no problems with shipping.
So, all in all I think that when the weight problem is solved and the slipperyness dealt with, it would be the knife that I would recommend for everyone as their first flipper, right now it just doesn't cut it. Pictures taken around 2 weeks after the knife arrived.
My son loves it. It is easy to work with.
The cool thing about this bali is the clean design, the blade looks like the glidr arctic/antarctic one, the handles are really grippy, it has zen pins so the sound and the resistance is good, the only problem that i encountered is that when it got to me it had a stiff handle and I couldn't flip it right away but, once the problem was explained, they sent me the lubricant immediately to fix it. Overall the quality is really good for the price, recommended for beginners. One cons is that it doesn't come along with spare hardware.
The shipment took around 10 days (to Italy) and it's actually quick, the product contains spare hardware and the quality is excellent for the price, it has tang pins and channel handles, the aestethic is fantastic and it flips really good, for the price i recommend it expecially for beginners.
I like this knife a lot, it has a good grip, good balance, cheap price, durable and has quick shipping. You should get it if you¡¯re interested in buying your own!
The balisong is nice and heavy in the hands.. i will say the only issue with it is that you cant really spin it due to the heaviness and the sharp shape it doesnt spin in the hand very well. overall a really well made butterfly knife for newer flippers.

After owning dozens of balisongs like the triton v1 and having used a krake raken for a few days I ordered this on a gamble not expecting much. This bali is by far the best I've flipped and I choose this over the krake raken any day , it's a shame there's not more color options like red handles with black blade however this thing is amazing.
Was very good
It came to me in less than a week and feels solid. If you are looking for a cheep and high quality Balisong trainer, this is the place.
