Decent for the price
I got one of these some years ago at a knife shop. The construction is very rugged and it's got a good solid blade, but it cuts a lot of corners--loose fitting parts, cheap pins, nothing keeping the latch from swinging between the handles, that sort of thing. If you look through video reviews you'll see that a fair amount of time is spent covering various modifications needed to make it work correctly as a flip knife. While it works just fine as a knife it has enough issues to turn off an enthusiast.Overall, this is an adequate middle-of-the-road balisong in a market utterly polarized by $200 Spyders and $5 tacticool junk, but quality issues really hold it back. It's too bad Bear doesn't make one for $40-50 with improved hardware.
