I bought this for my grandson who turned 12 he likes it
Perfect for practicing with this type of knife. The only issue I had is that the bolt to keep the knife latched was too loose and flew out. But yeah other than that, great knife
Good quality knife it is awesome and great for beginners
Bought this as a Christmas gift. Checked it out & looks like a very good product. Haven't given it to the individual as yet.
The knife was surprisingly high quality. You may need to tighten the handle screws on the blade once in awhile, but it looks fabulous!
Overall, it's a great trainer. Little on the heavy side, but has good quality...well, everything. The hinge did start to get stuck, but nothing WD-40 couldn't handle. Looks like a real blade, and at a certain distance looks sharp, but the blade is surprisingly dulled. NOT SHARP AT ALL. Great for collecting and flips well.
I would totally recommend one to someone who is looking for a cool and useful knife. One thing that I have to say is that you might not like the grip of it if you want t do tricks. Otherwise..... Awesome knife
The knife itself is beautiful. The pictures really don't do it justice. At first, the joints are pretty stiff and for a balisong its very heavy. For the past 4 months i've been using mine non-stop, pretty much all the time. Like, i'd guess I have it in my hand flipping it on average 3 hours per day at least. It is honestly such a good stress/anxiety relief tool. So much more effective than fidget spinners/cubes. Trust me, this really helps mentally. Anyways, as far as wear and tear goes, the paint on the handles slowly started to peel off so i just sanded it down, and with the bare steel it honestly still looks pretty cool. Also, the little galaxy grips on the handle itself slowly fell off one by one but I just superglued them back on and they stayed. The hinge eventually got to a point where it didn't really work anymore. It still kept the knife closed, but after a while squeezing the handles didn't undo it. I dropped it numerous times, and it didn't really do any damage. The screws would slowly come undone and make it progressivley more and more loose but using two T8 screwbits it can be readjusted. Recently, I was teaching my friend how to flip and, well, it broke. He dropped it, and the larger handle came off. Now, you might be wondering why I can't just screw it back, but somehow he stripped it. Sure, this is an amazing value, but remember you are buying a 30$ product, so the quality isn't supreme. Anyways, despite its death I loved my galaxy balisong by MEGAKNIFE and I will buy another one as soon as I possibly can!
