Damn. Benchmade discontinued the model 42 (apparently THE standard amongst balisongs) and replaced it with the model 62. The 62 is a nice knife, but apparently weighs about as much as a tank. I think I'm gonna grab the model 51.

You could try to find a Bradley Cutlery Kimura, recently discontinued but still around. A cheaper starter into the bali world that gets a lot of praise. If you do go with the 51 I'd suggest a coated black blade. D2 can develop rust spots pretty easy. At least on my buddies benchmade bone collector it spotted pretty quick, and he keeps his things clean.

Went with a polished Kimura IX.

It's not as much affordability that drew me to it as it was a combination of features I wanted in a bali. Weight, construction, blade material, blade shape, etc. I didn't like the D2 steel that Benchmades now use, and the BM 51 was just too light, I feel. The BM 62 was just too poor of a knife for too much money. The Microtech Tachyon 2 was also a choice, but the only available blade shape (tanto) didn't appeal to me.

My biggest gripe with the Kimura is the fact that it's polished. But, it's all I could choose from, and I didn't want to hunt down used.

I'm excited to start flipping!

Just run painters tape across the blade to learn. Maybe run the edge across the bottom of a ceramic mug to dull it a bit before flipping. 14C28N shouldn't  be too hard to get your edge back.

I liked 14C28N. That stuff gets stupid sharp and lasts reasonably long.

That's part of the reason I chose this particular knife. The D2 is too prone to rust (as mentioned) and chipping for my interest.

Sharpen it up before you start.  That'll be the best way to learn.

Oh, it'll be sharp. Honestly I have no real intention to dull it. I mean, I don't WANT to cut myself, but it'll happen, and it's better to cut yourself with a sharp blade. I won't start off with the kinds of tricks in the vid. Start slow, respect the knife, keep hydrogen peroxide near by. :)

Like I said, I'll report back with the first hand injury!
