Thank you for your interest.
The new Spyderco BaliYo is a pen concept that will be expanded. We've been working on the idea and making models for more than 2 years. The original BaliYo is one of Eric's designs.
The goal was to capture the "spirit" of the butterfly without any of the legal implications. The BaliYo can be used anywhere, by anyone, sitting or standing.
Tooling is curently in progress in 3 locations and prices should vary from $15 to $50. Delivery is expected to begin in May or June.
Since the pen "moves", much care is being taken to be able to handle millions of "flips" (and a few "drops"
). Quality materials and construction is important.
Size, balance and shape have been refined to serve. There will be a variety of colors and so far, two basic shapes. Many plans for the future.
We're planning a contest; regional to national.
BaliYo's are safe, legal and fun and should serve a large market. "everybody BaliYo's".
