Dear clipiteer ;
It would be interesting to
see, but I think not ( as far as <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> doing
this )<img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> , let's face it : the market is
innundated with butterfly knives. It would be
nice to see, but don't hold up your hopes.

Count me in for a Spydie Bali-song!<img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0><img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0><img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
I was this close, ><img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0><, to buying a Benchmade butterfly knife before Christmas, last year. I think I'd like one that had the <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> on it more.<img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

I don't care how much it costs.
Give me a spyderco balisong.
A 2 inch bali would be stupid, not enough to twirl.
At least 4 inches, if not more.

Just another bump, and a question... Could we see a pic of the prototype, or would that be too much of a giveaway?

This thread has gained a lot of interest... C'mon, give us something for our intrigue! A set of dimensions and a short description would suffice, though a pic would be sweet!

Spyderholic_II, I hate you <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Don't suppose you managed to get a snap of it whilst it was in your grubby mits ?

You hint at differences to more traditional bali's. Any hints on what those differences are ?

It was a time when I was crazy for butterflies (the knives, of course<img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>. This was happening just after I was crazy for autos (also knives <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>. Now I'm crazy for spidies, and it seems it's gonna last <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>. Anyway, after several years of carrying and using butterfly knives, I saw that a good butterfly, a really good one, still waits to be manufactured. I know Benchmade is fine, but just open and close it a few thousand times, (it's not that hard, I did it easily with my butterflies, just the way you open and close your spidie while watching TV or surfing the Net) and you'll notice that inevitable bladeplay, even at a quality knife like Benchmade's. I think it requires a lot of study to make a perfectly balanced balisong, that's why I'm saying that a really good one is yet to come.
(On the other hand, why not be Spyderco the first to mak it? <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Not again!
On second thought;
Which thread holds the longest thread record?

How interesting. We all know that when you get an error message your post really did go through. You can open up the thread again to verify this. But it seems that your post count doesn't change. Who else has noticed this? Also if you hit the "back" button and do it again your post count will still be the same.
I must be bored,

pachucko> used to be an edit increased your count also... and then the posting bug hit, and I've had days where I make 5-10 posts and my count only goes up 2-3...

<img src=http://us.f1.yahoofs.com/users/372fcedb ... 8A88UxWudf> We all start with 10 fingers. Those with Spydies have 9 to spare, Still need a thumb. Good thing I still have 8 to spare... <img src=http://us.f1.yahoofs.com/users/372fcedb ... 8A88UxWudf>

Hmmmm..

A Spyder bali? I'm in for two minimum - pouched-carry, CA legal, whatever. Much of "the collection" stays within the castle walls anyway. Speaking of butterflys and castles how does the model CXX Monarch sound??

Okay. I was just was amazed at the support out there for <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>co to build a better bali and had to add my $.02 worth of support. I'll go make another pot of joe now........

I need a new knife, and i want a Spyderco. My father has had a Delica for five years and loves it. I am also a big fan of balis. Did anything ever come out of this project?

grahjas,
Welcome to the Spydie forum!!! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
Yes Spyderco is planning to make a balisong. There were reports of a pre-proto"Don't ask about" piece being seen at Blade. They are maybe being released this year, but I wouldn't look for them any time soon. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Spyderco won't release them untill they are right. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
So start saving your nickel's and dime's.

What a great thread and what good answers!

What else could be said! Just make it. They are the most fun knife out there-heck you make kitchen knives-fixed blade knives-a multi tool-a "SAW" why not a "Bali!!!".

Since when is a balisong considered an auto????

TN law ststes that a Balisong(butterfly knife)is not to be concidered an automatic knife.

I learn something new everyday,even though I don't want to. Jeff
