Cons: Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use
It is what it is as a budget trainer
Overall, it's sturdy and reasonably well built as a training tool. Flips decently and the action is smooth. The one complaint I have about this is major, but I remedied it with a pair of pliers rather easily, and with it out of the way, it's no longer a problem.That issue being the latch. It's thick, there's no gate (you get what you pay for), but because of the latter, it often swings up too high and gets stuck. This becomes a major problem while you're flipping, as it wedges up, gets stuck, and separates the handles. It's very annoying.The pins do not allow for you to remove it, so I had to simply break the damn thing off completely. As it's a trainer, I really didn't need the latch anyways and this thing is way better off without it.Of course, had I not been able to break it off, this would have resulted in a lower score. But the latch is definitely a big drawback.

Don't buy a balisong with rivets..
I didn't get mine from knife center but this is the exact one I bought. All was well and was happy.. but after clocking a couple days of heavy work on it.. the handles cracked up by the bolsters and it went flying in two pieces.. threw it in the trash and wrote it off as a lesson learned and started looking else where. Not trying to sway anyone away from bear and son but the lesson is obvious.. You get what you pay for and don't buy a balisong with brass or any kind of rivets.. you might as well go to the flea market..
