I’ve always liked pin construction balisongs than cheap sandwich construction balisong with screws

if u drop i alot does bladeplay increase ???

The Slayersaurus says:

Good simple review, love it

carter Schroeder says:

be careful I had mine for four months and the handles are broke

bobdanger99 says:

I had two of these. They were great to flip in my opinion, however they both snapped at the handles within two weeks

Warren Haley says:

I had one. after five months of using it i had the handles replaced twice. I eventually made my own and they work reliably now


Packaging sucked but the blade is sweet!!

Ricky Mathis says:

Nice looking nice bro

SchoolOf SelfReliance says:

Another great video brother.

Leo Nardo says:

is it an offensive blade?

Spirit Blade says:

really like the blue version . looks cool.

winkleried says:

Picked up the black handled version at a local Academy Sports. mine came in a blister pack. The only issue I have is that the latch is extremely loose when closed and doesn’t latch the handles open or closed.

Nanchi Knives says:

only thing I would like would be a latch gate and if the handles were made of steal or aluminum not zinc pretty awsome Bali though especially for price if you want even a little better than these it will cost you 100 dollars that is a long jump lol

brandi wynter says:

I’ve been looking for a good quality affordable butterfly knife for a long time and Bear & Son knives are often mentioned along with their propensity for broken handles. Even here in the comments there are multiple people saying that their Bear & Son knives broke at the handle. I was very interested in these knives but after looking at tons of reviews there are WAY too many reports of the handles breaking soon after purchase. What is the point of filling the void for budget butterfly knives if you use cheap zinc handles that break when you drop them or just with normal use? It’s too bad because I like the idea of an affordable American made butterfly knife, there is a definite need for them but it they aren’t durable enough to actually use what good are they?

BladeObsession says:

Great color. Loved these back in the day. I may have to break down and get one of those.

Bill Jhonson says:

though made in america it is still a pice of shit mine turned to garbage after three months of use what a joke

Knife Lover says:

Yes, yes it is worth the money and much much more, I’ve been flipping for about 2-3 years now, I have collected bout 7 balisongs, this one is the best so far, I have the 114PK just for a laugh but it is one of the best flippers I have ever had.

Morcego538 says:

i really lile the color

Billy franks says:

Nice review. I got the same one with Damascus steel. It’s definitely of budget quality, but made in USA and a great everyday beater. I just wish I went with the 440c instead. It’s also not as sharp as the Benchmade knifes so I’m more inclined to push myself with this one.

Science King says:

just bought one

B2animations says:

do the Remington edition It’s carbon.

Mike S says:

would this be a good buy for a first butterfly knife? im looking for something cheap but wont fall apart sort of like this

GunCollector007 says:

I like it a lot! Like that finish.

Let's React says:

Is it the same as son and bear 114 without color?

Sasa Jugovic says:

Very niceeeeeee

Matt Owen says:

I have a benchmade 42 counterfeit that I flip more because it was well made it flips nice but I’d rather buy a pin construction balisong that has channel construction.
