Should have read the reviews -- a terrible knife
Completely my fault for not reading through the reviews, but this is by far the worst butterfly I've ever handled, despite the high quality materials in the blade (D2 is a fine choice) and handles (nicely machined stainless). Far worse than the $25 Benchmark I practice with. The pivot pins are way too loose to be useful, and they are just rivets, so they cannot be adjusted. It's a dangerous, wobbly mess.Also, the blade is mounted backwards. The bite side of the blade faces the latch handle, which is the reverse of every balisong in history. That's going to lead anyone who owns this knife to some serious hurt.

Looks nice but unbelievably flimsy
When I found out about this knife, I had to have it. A classic look that doesn't cost an arm, a leg, an eye, and your first born son. I love to support US manufacturers when I can, especially for knives of this type, although this balisong was disappointing for the price. It's beautiful, extremely sharp out of the box, and the latch stays in place tightly, but that also makes it a hassle to deploy. Other than a 14" balisword, this is the heaviest balisong I've toyed with, which I personally don't really mind, although I suppose more 'professional' flippers would rather have something lighter. My main issue with this knife however, is that while the overall construction seems bulletproof, I'm positive that if I do anything other than let this collect dust, the pivoting pins will break, and that is not something I look forward to, as I've never attempted repairing a bali, and I'd like to not scuff the finish when it does go flying apart. So not only is it the heaviest balisong I've used, it's also the flimsiest and makes the $20 Chinese made balis look top notch. I don't know if this is typical quality of Schrade but if I had known this in advance, I would've skipped on this purchase.

In the middle of everything
Rough, simple and clumsy. Not a flipper, not a EDC. Its heavy but not sturdy since the pivot pins are the worst i´ve seen so far (LOTS of play in the handles). Cheap manufacturing. Not a 1 because it looks cool. Have it for a couple of days and now its on sale. Terrible knife in all respects.
