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.

  • 12:55

  • 12:56
    I filmed and put it together last night, its ok and nothing crazy. I just use windows movie maker and I'm not even sure fancy editing is possible on that
  • 12:57
    Its not up cause I'm gonna make my gf watch it and make sure it looks ok. I think if someone that doesn't flip thinks its ok, then it will def be decent for you guys

    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
