Looks cool! Definitely not a flipper!

Just started flipping? Hard to find decent Balis in the $30-$60 range? The Search Ends Here!

Don't hold out for a BM42! Take that $400+ you are planning on spending and go get in line for an Alpha Beast! You won't be disaponted!

Re: Karambit Balisong

Maybe if you manage some kind of herb garden, since it's a foraging blade, and you want a bali style knife to cut the stems. Other than that I really can't see a purpose for it.

Yeah I have held a lot of them. Jared west of Mantis Knives, kind of messed up when deciding which side the latch should go on.

Re: Karambit Balisong

I personally don't like it, too much money for what it is.

Re: Karambit Balisong

looks pretty cool. most balisongs aren't designed to be utility knives so this may be good for some people. looks to be quite sturdy.

IDK I never really liked the karambit style blade but as far as quality goes it looks like it might be alright.

Re: Karambit Balisong

Got one of these awhile ago. It's nice just to say you got the original "balibit", but other than that I honestly can't recommend it to anyone. It's absolutely horrible as a bali (as I'm sure you could have guessed), and it's double the price it would be as a regular folder/fixed karambit. The quality/ fit and finish is great, and it just feels awesome in hand, but for $80? Wouldn't do it again.

Re: Karambit Balisong

I have seen this flipped before. Not a good flipper its pretty small (if you know the size of karambit knives its about the same size). Very cool thing to have tho for a collector i guess.
