Bradley kimura V....erm III review

A friend of mine bought a kimura III, but had some trouble with it, so he handed it to me to be tinkered with, I.did the basic lubing, oiling, and locktite treatment. :D after flipping it around for a but afterwards Ive gathered a few opinions, first of all its a sturdy, bulky thing, well made though. However it is abit too heavy for me, and the handles are too wide for my liking,while it is a nicr cheap balisong, I cant see myself picking up one.
All in all a good balisong, just not my particular pereferance. Just my 2 cents
Heres some eye candy for listening to me blab

To be fair to the review, the hardware is all the same on them but that made me laugh

The Kimura isn't that much wider than a 51. They are about the same width at the base of the handle, but the 51 is tapered towards the tang, so it's maybe 2mm narrower at the tang. The edges of the 51 has an acute bevel as well, so it the handles may seem a lot narrower but I don't think it is.

Place your 51 on top of your Kimura and you can see what I'm talking about.

Im comparing it to my 51, and no its not just the wideness of the handles, its the square shape that makes it feel so alien to me. And excuse me it is a III not a V. The point I was trying to get across was I simpy didnt like the profile of the knife. And fun little exra, I just put a spring latch on it :D

Re: Bradley kimura V....erm III review

Even if it isnt actually wider, It seems that way. After handling the 51 for so long, thats the first thing I could really think about. Even now as I've played with it all day, it just seems so much wider.

I think I know what you're talking about, probably cause of the ergo cuts in the 51's handles right?

Could be, but I didn't even think of them when I thought about the kimmy.

Re: Bradley kimura V....erm III review

I can easily imagine that being the case, I hardly even notice the 51 cut outs when flipping but I can definatly see how there would be a slight difference (noticable though) on a squared off handle

  • 16:29
    got you
  • 23 Jul 2014
  • 9:08
    thank you kindly
  • 24 Jul 2014
  • 4:11
    finna
  • 9:20
    finna. it means the state of a person/object/etc, as it will go to/perform in some way or another
  • 9:22
    in this case, I was already (going to), be late. which is common dialect but in its essence also improper verbage as you cant "go to" a time (unless you have a time machine).
  • 9:23
    so actually, I already (will) be late, as what I am attempting to convey is my present state of being, that being late. which, for what its worth, I was johny on the spot
  • 9:57
    well that's the most elaborate explanation I've heard of that word so far
  • 9:58
    I'm calling out TDknife on BT
  • 16:23
    i majored in english ;) and good luck man!
  • 18:25
    sending tach 2 back to microtech to fix a broken spacer, gonna miss her and probably get some annoying call back from microtech asking for more money

    jason, I'm gonna be getting a drill press soon so I will be able to do some nice stuff with that typhoon. I got the ball bearings in the mail the other day, but haven't touched anything yet
  • 11:58
    what's good
  • 13:39
    hmm.
  • 16:25
    heyoooo got my gloves, boots, and helmet! class is august 19, 23 and 24 =)
  • 17:44
    what type of bike are you looking to get, like the style? Keep in mind I don't know a whole lot about bikes
  • 20:46
    think I know what I'm gonna do for this round!
  • 27 Jul 2014
  • 15:11
    A sport bike =) I dont know what one specifically yet, Ill cross that bridge when i come to it
  • 15:13
  • 20:28
    def looks cool. Is your bike gonna have any of those colors, or is it too early for that?
  • 28 Jul 2014
  • 15:37
    too early to tell lol. I will end up getting whatever bike i can afford. but the rest of my gear is white and black.
  • 19:24
    Yea thats what I figured and you gotta tell me how you did that zippo trick at the end
  • 29 Jul 2014
  • 11:59
    you bend the wick towards the striking wheel
  • 12:00
    so when you "take the flame" it leaves it semiburning, and then you snap it back the gust of air reignites the wick
  • 12:03
    kimino was most original, the slovak did some real nice cardmoves, chivs zippotricks killed the challenge, and TDknife almost killed himself lol.
  • 16:52
    Oki, why didn't you compete in this?
  • 17:45
    I had a feeling it was gonna be stuff like this. Looking back, I don't regret it. I don't feel like a 5 sec video or a non-bali flipping video would help me in any way.
  • 17:52
    I actually made a video for the first round, bt before posting I checked what other people were submitting. For the TRICK mastery round I actually did a trick 3 times in a row. everyone else were doing Combo work. So I was like fuck that.
  • 18:18
    yeah, really shoulda been called the "trick/combo/whatthefuckever mastery challenge," but it's always just been 'trick mastery.'
  • 18:33
    kinda originated back in the day when the distinction between the two was getting blurry, so no distinction was made.
  • 18:59
    I thought the 5 second was cool, but even though I suggested the non balisong vid I had a hard time coming up with anything
  • 19:07
    When I think of trick I think of what ryanol did. I don't even consider a helix a trick as its a few different finger manipulations. But jason said combos were allowed so thats what I did.
  • 30 Jul 2014
  • 0:32
    Well a TRICK is really just a series of basic moves linked together, ie a combo
  • 0:33
    Murnax ladder, bt8b, helix, twirl, all these are "short combos" but they are also TRICKS
  • 0:33
    and they do help. I always come up with way more interesting ideas than in any challenge ive done.
  • 16:44
    I guess they are short enough to be considered tricks, but I still think a trick should be one thing.
  • 16:45
    And I def got better from this because the rounds forced me to do different things I don't normally do.
  • 16:46
    I never did transfers, and now even after the entry I'm learning new transfers. I also didn't do a whole lot of reflipping, but i'm starting to work more on that too because of the 5 second challlenge.
  • 20:56
    not everyone is cut out for it
