So im a bali addict anyone else collect?
these are all hand made customs.
can someone explain the point of these to me? they look uncomfortable to use, and truthfully, I would rather use a Benchmade or something *shrugs*
Oh, and can you edit so the pics are vertical?
Nice bali's. I've got a Spyderfly.
hot. I love butterflies. I only have a cheapy right now, but I want to get a spyderfly some day. That double bladed one is sexy as hell. It takes balls to use a double-bladed butterfly.
They're quick to deploy and the the locks are approaching the strength of a fixed blade, effectively no chance the lock is going to fail on you. BTW, Benchmade does make Bali's...so you might want to clarify.
I don't really have much experience with them, other than one I snagged from a pimp's trunk in impound, but it's a POS cheapy. For utility and other uses I keep BM Grip's nearby. No time to properly train myself to carry a Bali, plus the legal reasons in Oregon.
I have benchmade's model 42. i actually use it a lot. I have a benchmade griptilian as well that i use.
but then i re did the model 42's blade so now it's sharpened on both sides now.
heres some of my benchmades
i sharpend one of my 43s like that
I love the bottom one. Dobruski makes some kickass knives.
This thread made me order the half serated benchmade 42 DAMN YOU GUYS!!!
Aren't they irregar to carry though?
I don't even understand how the hell they open so fast. Every time I see a video of someone doing it, it's closed, then there's 5 or 6 frames of blur, then it's open.
I always thought those knives were kinda

I don't think I'm legally allowed to own one
When my dad was in highschool he sold one to a friend's friend who flipped it out in front of a teacher and threatened her. He got expelled and my dad just got suspended for 3 days for selling it to him.
btw how do you flip open those knives? I've seen it done in movies and stuff but it looks like they twirl it around and the blade is suddenly out.
That website is fucked.
Videos with the suffix .wmv.avi = failure.
in cali the balade has to be under 2"s. to carry. You can still own them in your own home
Weeeeeeeee! Just got here today.
Lucky, I like BM's. The Ti handles are so light.
Enjoy it watch the serations though the like to chew up fingures.
