Post ‘em if you got ‘em! Here’s a sketch of a blade I’ve got coming from Ironside Edgeworks out of South Africa, a hybridized Karambit/Pikal combative knife I’ve been designing in my mind for some time and finally decided to have someone make it out of steel (posting here to kill time as I anxiously await updates);

I have a thing for balisongs and fixed blades. :-) hopefully I'll be able to make a few custom blades here soon. I have a friend who works at a place with a cnc plasma cutter. I have a few designs that I need to put to CAD here as soon as my laptop gets fixed. 907d54631ce73c7990695f42af97008e.jpg479b192c09d4ec4c99dcdbfa30afed6e.jpg

Nice group of blades! I’ve been wanting to add a balisong to my collection for a while now but just haven’t found the one that speaks to me yet.

 

How do you like the Bushbat? I’m a diehard Karambit fan (both traditional and non-traditional) and the unique blade shape of the JX4 has been taunting me to buy one for a long time. All of my current collection are production blades but here’s my current lineup of ring-handled knives, anxiously awaiting being able to add my first custom which will be the knife in the sketch from my first post;

I like it I haven't been able to mess w it too much. It's my wife's. I really like it a lot but she hid it so I cant carry it any more. Lol.
If ur looking for a really nice balisong Google OSP MTRX. Books close Friday and they are pricey but damn they are gorgeous! Just a heads up if u find one u like and it's in stock buy it. All the good ones sell out VERY fast. Like hours. So you may have to wait for the next "drop" follow manufacturers on Instagram and Facebook. Sign up for email alerts too. Anything but benchmade sell out super quickly.
2nd hand market may be your best bet for some of them.
Here's a few replacement blades I'm working on getting made. Just need my computer back from repair before I can CAD model them. ccd56390d505789a26d4ff41a55a0cc6.jpga6b0c8c10619f498726ece143b6dd53a.jpg

Very nice. It’ll be a while before I’m back in a position to purchase any balisong of reasonable quality, all of my knife-purchasing funds are going towards the custom blade from Ironside Edgeworks at the moment. Very reasonably priced for a completely original design entirely handmade knife of extremely high quality, but that doesn’t come cheap either way

I have to say in terms of balisongs I’d really been waiting for the Tops Knives version to come out. I like the slightly beefier proportions of it as compared to most butterfly knives. I know it probably wouldn’t be a great “flipper”, but that’s not really my interest in a balisong anyway. They teased it a couple years ago at SHOT and Blade Show but unfortunately I haven’t seen anything else on it since;
