New and in need of a little help!

Hello all,

My name is Nick and I am currently a college student looking to get into balisong flipping. However, I need some help in finding a knife. My "Big Bro" in my fraternity has a Benchmade 50-something morpho and another one of my friends has a Bear and Son 114d. I've been using both of their knives to begin some practicing but I'd really like to buy my own now. I'm looking to spend up to $125-150 but the less I spend the better. So here's the list of knives I'm looking at purchasing and if you can give me some advice on choosing, a review, or any help at all it would be much appreciated (I'm looking for which one is the "best" flipper).

List of the ones I'm looking at:
Bear and Son - 114ad, Bear Ops 200
Bradley - Kimura 7

I apologize if there are any misspellings or if the models are wrong. Go easy on me!

JohnneyBmore usually has a great deal on the Kimura series. I think he is out of stock right now, but send him a message and see what he has... :welcome1: Welcome to our addiction!

If you're just starting then definitely a Kimura. As far as which Kimura, it doesn't matter, just go with what you like the looks of better. I have a K6.

    never posted pics but vids are easy. do you have a yt channel? if so, just upload your video to your channel, then when you want to post the video, select the preset option for "youtube" and paste your link in between"
  • 11:20
    usually you will have to cut out the "s" in "https" but the rest just does it on its own
  • 11:21
    if you wanna post any videos of your knives in general, start a thread in "the knives we flip"
  • 11:21
    if you want to post a video of you flipping, post it in "the art of flipping"
  • 11:22
    if you want to do a challenge/competition, make a new thread in challenges, either calling someone specifically out, or issuing an open challenge.
  • 11:22
    then, in the text box within the actual thread, state the rules of the challenge, number of competetors, etc etc
  • 11:23
    pm me or just use this chatbox here if you have questions about anything
  • 11:29
    Where would I go to upload my channel to what channel in the settings area?
  • 12:17
    you dont need to upload your channel. all you have to do is go to whatever thread you want to upload the video to, select the youtube tab. and then copy the url in between the brackets
