Consider that by not entering the Bali market because there are "a number of other companies producing many Butterfly knives", that's like saying that Spyderco doesn't need to make knives with liner locks or fixed blade knives or lockbacks or any other type of knife because someone else already makes plenty of them. With that philosophy, Spyderco would have never existed[:-( ]because there were already plenty of other manufacturers making knives. Making Balisongs would also expand Spyderco's market. Benchmade would be the only real competition, because who in their right mind would choose that poor little dull Balisong rusting in peace over a Spydie Bali? The least you could do would be to make a limited run of them(which would instanty become collector's items; the first Butterflies made by Spyderco)to see if people would buy them, and then, when they did, start making a production Bali in VG-10 or 440V blade steel with Titanium handles, a 3.5 to 4 inch blade in Spyderedge,50/50, or PlainEdge, the "magnet latch" that WTFOVER mentioned and a Weehawk blade. Fellow Spyder knuts, what do you think? Would you like to see a Spyderco Butterfly? How about "Spyderfly" for a name? Sal, hope you"ll consider this.
