2. Calling it dead on arrival
… there are a little less than 90 posts on Paraguay’s thread supporting 1, 2, or 3. Very few actually recommended anything. Someone wanted a really large “Military” in the theme of the Texas flag (Amen, you go buddy.)
steelcity16, Naperville, and Evil D are the only people who recommended anything constructively.
Evil D wanted a forum made knife Endura sized.
steelcity16 requested a Dodofly… I just made it my own. Dodofly in my opinion is a cool idea. Nod to you steelcity16.
If I drew another Dodofly, I would make the handles a little asymmetrical and shaped more for a grip and less for symmetry needed to Bali flip the thing.
A recurved Balisong with front serrations.
Please share your constructive thoughts. Would you buy one?
Good point the big round hole in this one has no function.Jim Malone wrote: ↑Mon Jan 24, 2022 5:24 pmNo, why include a Spyderco hole on a balisong ( butterfly )knife? It would be a bad flipper as well due to an asymetric blade. It is illegal in a lot of countries. Balisong's are normally good stabbers and your bladeprofile is ment for slashing. The blade does not fit the handles. The tip will break off when you hit the handle with it.
I like the artistic time and work you put in it and it beats shovelling snow from your roof but it needs a lot of finetuning. Keep up the good work. Just teasing you a bit.
It’s a first draft. Please wait for a cardboard photo-type, that’s when that kink gets discovered.
Good points about Paraguy’s attempt. I consider his post a good success (it got me thinking.)VooDooChild wrote: ↑Mon Jan 24, 2022 5:47 pmSure its all good.
I just want to say looking at a "forum designed knife" thread by only the constructive comments still defeats the purpose of the original thread.
I guess Im just saying that even the non-constructive criticism was, in a sense, saying that you just cant make all the people happy all the time.

Well, no offense, but if you're at all serious about this knife design, that's a step you should do before asking anyone "would you buy one?" Because right now the answer is "no, that thing will cut my nuts off".
Thanks for the critique. Good points. I suppose “my” point would be better, because you tell me it will have your nuts!zhyla wrote: ↑Mon Jan 24, 2022 7:06 pmWell, no offense, but if you're at all serious about this knife design, that's a step you should do before asking anyone "would you buy one?"

I think I've seen Spyderco say something to the effect that they don't produce designs that have been disclosed on the forum already. So that's something else to think of if you really mean to bring this to market.
Thank you JSumm! Thank my mom for the art talent, “thank you mom”
Thank you for the encouragement! back to the drawing table!Frozenspyder wrote: ↑Mon Jan 24, 2022 8:12 pmI love balisongs. I actually like the serrations on there. It's not something you usually see. However, I'm not a fan of reverse-s blades. This one seems to have a little more material at the tip than most though. Overall, I like it and I'd buy one. The design needs some fine tuning, but it shows some promising ideas.
