What makers would you like to see get in the balisong game? I know Mayo was looking to get in some time ago, although I'm not sure if those plans are still current. Wouldn't mind seeing a blackwood balisong.

Interestingly, I see a lot of tactical guys getting into the mix, but I wonder what some of the more traditional makers would do with this, like primos or caffrey.

Johnny Stoudt. Mainly because he lives about thirty miles from my house.
His auto knives are really beautiful. Bet his balis would be also.:)

I would love to see Strider's interpretation of the bali! I'd be very curious as to what Lightfoot could do also.

Some great suggestions :)...

I'd really like to see Phil Boguszewski knock a few out simply because I'm pretty darn sure he could nail the pivots...., and he does have a little mill in his basement.. :)

Awesomely smooth folders!

Let's see..., hmmmm...

I'd sure take a Warren Osborne Balisong with that "Winged Death" blade he does....

Oh yeah.. :cool: .., and that hippy guy in Wisconsin (http://www.jodysamson.com/) too...:rolleyes:

Tom Anderson, JW Smith & Kit Carson - fit, finish & precision work they do would be incredible in a Bali - Mayo would be good too but I could see Tom getting into the Spam-a-Songs.

I think Blackwood would be pretty cool, still waiting for Mayo follow through on his. Snody would be cool too. Ken Onion, would probably also come up with something innovative.

Hopefully Tom Anderson will get into it and do those tritium inserts that he's done on his folders. That would be insanely cool.

Very true ...

Microtech did those years ago. We've got those on order and they should be here any day. I'm not sure about the final price on them, but they're easy to install and pretty inexpensive. I'd say they'll show up on a lot of typhoons pretty soon ... can't wait! Maybe we'll have them turn the lights off at the Blade Show so we can have a typhoon twirling exhibition.

Are you talking about the tritium dots that they used to use on some of the auto buttons? I recall hearing that they stopped making them--was this just leftover stock? That'd be cool--definitely let us know when/if it's available (or just me is fine too :D )

Yes, those are what I was referring to.

Actually, we're working on a method to make it more versitile for our type of use. I think you'll like it!

Zenghost,
Have been talking to Tom A. already about doing some Balis - was on back-burner until he came out with "NUKE" & "ALIEN" folders - when i mentioned about Balis with inserts & flippin' in the dark it did pique his interest - will be talking to him more at Blade about it snce we will be neighbors - going to try to convince him that he has to do this. 0] :cool: :D

Good job, dude--we all gotta put the squeeze on makers to come out with balis...:D Especially if they're going to glow in the dark! And from what I've seen, Tom can do it...
