No chance I would flip in public. But I EDC everyday.

I used to be paranoid about it but I'll flip anywhere I don't see police at this point.

Even in states you can carry it needs to be visible or otherwise it will be considered concealed. I live in Oregon and carry a BM51 but it has a clip therefore not concealed. Correct me if Im wrong on any of this

You are correct. But I will inform you of something that makes me think twice about carrying a bali, even in Oregon. years ago there was a protestor, I am not sure exactly what he did to get the cops attention. When arrested, he had a folding knife with a pocket clip, not a bali. Now I am going to get into a pretty bad argument that is just a slippery slope the whole way down. Since you can "flick" a pocket knife with a brownie pop or a simple flick of the wrist (even though it is not good for the knife :mrgreen: ), it was concidered a gavity knife. Now comes the scary part, the police argued that they could not tell that it was a knife from a distance, even though visable with a pocket clip, it could have been a cell phone case or a number of things with a pocket clip. It was also stated that the knife was covered by a sweatshirt, making this poor kid with a freaking folding knife is now charged with a concealed gravity knife.
I could argue about how wrong this is for days. But after hearing about this case, I usually carry folders, go figure :roll: . As long as you're not doing anything stupid... no cop in his right mind should a have problem with you, or a knife.
State of Oregon v. Michael James Coatney Appellate Court No. A132096

Do I stroll down a sidewalk while flipping? Nope. Do I carry a bali? rarely, just cant help it somedays :pirate1: Even though I have been playing with balis since I was a little guy, I still view them as scary to most other people. I treat mine with respect and understand that other people could find flipping intimidating.

Re: Do you flip publicly?

I will carry my bali on occasion, but not often. I have flipped outside, but not where there are a ton of random people watching, only where my friends were watching though I could be seen.
Seriously though if you wanted advice on how to fight.... go with the Bitch Slap as he won't be expecting that and it would be funny as fuck.

Re: Do you flip publicly?

I always carry my best knife with me if I leave the house.

I live in Alabama, I am pretty sure they are illegal here but that doesn't stop me.

I flip publicly regardless. At the park, hospital, parking lots, on school grounds, etc.

    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
