Introducing the Barebones! The foundation of the Barebones' design consisted of two objectives; to make a balisong that everyone could afford and to maintain the high-performance level that BRS Knives are known for. Well, goal accomplished in the Barebones. It's a sleek design that takes similar form and dimensions as its predecessors (Alpha Beast and Replicant), but fuses its own unique attributes to make it a one of a kind flipper. 

The Barebones features all-stainless-steel framed handles that are skeletonized to maintain optimum balance and reduce weight. You will find that Barebones is a very neutral handling balisong. It can be flipped fast or slow and really can adapt to a variety of manipulation styles. Coupled with extended handle dimensions the weight is very well distributed.

Blade steel is the ever robust 154CM to provide a lifetime of cutting performance and reliability. Hardware is all stainless steel including the latch. 

Whether you are just starting out as a flipper and new to balisongs or a long-time veteran of the sport, you will find the Barebones to be an optimum performer. Like all BRS products, it battle-ready out of the box and has performance at the forefront of design!

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality, Weight
Great knife for flipping. wish it had a pocket clip and crowned spine and much more refined and rounded zen pin stop, but that just nit picking. the knife I got however did come with a scratch about a 1/4 inch long on the safe handle and a nick in one of the cutouts. Don't expect the level of refinement the AB and Rep come with all that aside the knife flips very well, I still think the Replicant and Alpha B will always be great bargains for the money.

I have owned a Benchmade 51 Morpho and this is a huge step up. This knife is beautiful, it flips amazingly, and it has a very unqiue design. Most Balisongs have titanium spacers but this is knife is pretty much 100% steel. The weigh is very nice. Definitely a lot heavier than the 51 Morpho. I love how easy it is to manipulate momentum with the Barebones, too. It's like it was designed to practicaly flip itself. Doesn't flip nearly as fast as the BRS Replicant, and as a flipper who isn't as experienced as some of the best, it's kind of a good thing. I love the way the knife looks and flips. 10/10 BRS very much outdid themselves. It's razor sharp right out the box too. And it's not stiff at all. Ready to flip right out the box.
