Aesthetically pleasing & smooth after breaking in February 16, 2017
Reviewer: Franklin from Pensacola, FL United States  
I purchased this balisong a couple months ago and upon initial opening, the safe handle was a bit stiff. (Keep in mind that this balisong has pin construction, rather than screw construction. I personally prefer pin construction since it's less likely to fall apart than one with screws. Also keep in mind that with pin construction, you DON'T have the ability to adjust the tightness of your handles.)  Since then, I have occasionally flipped and oiled it to the point that it has been broken in and operates very smoothly. I personally find this balisong very aesthetically pleasing; the wood handles and nickel bolsters give it a very nice old-school look.

The only issue is that the black finish on the blade itself has worn down slightly after flipping.
As for the previous negative reviews, it seems like quality control with these particular Bear and Son balisongs may just be hit or miss as of late. In my case however, I purchased a very durable and aesthetically pleasing balisong.

Twice Tried this Blade, both Times Defective January 16, 2017
Reviewer: Christopher Smith from Lawrenceville, GA United States  
I bought this knife and received it with part of the blade's black coating scratched off and with one of the handles having a piece of wood with a knot and discoloration that Bear and Son's clearly attempted to sand down but still left a bump on the handle.  So, one handle was bumpy and discolored.  Additionally, it looks like the inside of the handle was coated in rust!

Bladeops sent me a replacement of the same blade, and on this one, the handles are different thickness AND it's impossible to flip open because one side of the blade jams into the handle too tight.  Every time you have to slam it open since it's so tight, and it scratches the blade just a little bit each time, so now there are marks on 1/2 the blade because of the ill fit.  

This brand is horrible!!!!  I will never buy Bear and Son's again--flea market quality knives.

Not worth the price. BY FAR. March 23, 2016
Reviewer: Jacob from Apex, NC United States  
I liked the look of this knife and since I don't have any balisongs in this style, I thought I'd add this to my collection.  Upon receiving it, it is pretty terrible and clunky for flipping  despite coming COVERED in factory lubricant (literally it was like someone dipped the thing in oil) and trying to lubricate the pins myself.  Considering there's no way to adjust the pins this is a problem.  It looks and feels much cheaper than I have would have thought.  I paid 60 dollars for this knife at a "reduced" price.  It feels like a 15 dollar knife.  This site is starting to lose my trust.
