BRSAB30: Alpha Beast 3.0
Bladerunners Systems


The Alpha Beast is not only the flagship model for BRS, but possibly the front runner for the balisong flipper community. Designed by and for flippers, the BRS Alpha Beast prides itself on breaking the accepted design cues of previous knives while fixating on weight, balance and tactility. Built from the ground up with performance at the forefront of design. Dimensions are centered around optimal manipulation. It features Bladerunners System's Signature Chevron System for immediate and constant haptic feedback and grip. It is optimally balanced for a variation of flipping styles and is a BEAST on all fronts. There isn't a flex to be found in the handle and the smooth action yields excellent manipulation. The clip point blade shape and subtly milled titanium handle make for one darn good-looking butterfly knife that is superbly built for hard daily use. The 3.0 version of the Alpha Beast features BRS' new, more robust hardware in the form of a 0.187" pivot with T10 torx screws and 1/4" stainless steel bushings, sex bolt spacers, through tang clips and improved overall tolerances. The result is without a doubt one of the finest and smoothest butterfly knives on the market. We are fortunate to be a dealer for Bladerunners Systems and bring this amazing product to you.

Cons: None
Hands Down, Better Than The Rest...
I’ve owned and flipped them ALL... Hands down the best flipping production knife on the market. She’ll take the abuse of a ba***rd step child and still come back for more. Balanced as a top and flips better than the rest. Very predictable knife. Anyone who says anything else has no idea what a top tier flipper should feel like. You won’t be disappointed

Love it
Very well made, looks good feels good. I enjoy the weight and size of this Balisong. The titanium handles make a clink clack sound that is desirable, and this knife handles so well. Very impressed, well worth the money.

If you're looking for the Holy Grail of balisongs, keep on looking.
Purchase Date: 11/01/2016I'd like to echo what Todd says in his review:- Presentation is completely absent- There are machine marks all over both handles and many squiggly marks too - Although it does flip well, it doesn't feel like a flagship knife while doing soThe spacers don't lie flush with with the handles. It's not as if they're uniformly recessed; they're crooked.In addition to that, my latch doesn't slide into place well. I have to brace the knife up against a desk or table in order to open one handed. The latch should be able to drop or be easily flicked out with a finger if the handles are sufficiently squeezed, but my latch requires considerable pressure. When flipping the knife, the latch will catch on the safe-handle when it shouldn't. It was so frustrating that I just took it off and made a ghetto, paracord latch. I'll have to take a file to the stock latch if I want to make it usable.That's just unacceptable on a $360 knife.All in all, I can't recommend the AlphaBeast. I feel like I was taken for a ride. I'm going to sand off the cheap-looking BRS logo first chance I get.
