I like the handles. Not sure about the blade. I mean it's cool and the file work is great. But beauty is highly subjective and the shape of the blade is somewhat ify to me. Don't get me wrong, I'd pay good money for this piece, great job. Especially for your first!

Take Mr. HumanEvolution's opinion with a grain of salt Cardoso. He is apparently a big fan of the Exiled Cutlery balisongs :roll: He was just trying to get his post count up so he could utilize our Buy/Sell section. Beautiful custom bali btw! I'll bet those ball bearings make it flip like butter.

That is a test for my new making process for the ball bearing system, but it's quite good :D

Exiled cutlery...... To have one, and to have done a review..... :)

But for the blade design, i'm a bit agreed with him, that is a bit strange, in france, the design is not enjoyed by most of people, on the other side of the ocean, that design is enjoyed :D. Funny isn't it?

I like this design,as you say the blade has a useful shape and the belly would be great for cutting and daily use.
The handle texture and ball bearing action is what I like best. Very well done Mr. Cardoso.
