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.
