Smooth and tons of fun
I bought this as gift for my son. He has enjoyed the heck out of this knife. At first, for him, it was a little too snug (the blade movement), but soon enough after several days of walking around the house flipping and maneuvering this thing - it was like second skin for him. He is a good boy and is responsible with his knives. He has built up respect, skills, and confidence in handling his knives. Personally, I was a bit intimidated by the size and how sharp this knife was, and continues to be (such a rugged blade). But in teaching my son and him learning the respect needed to handle this tool, well it (the knife) had brought us closer and built his confidence. Bear & Sons - thank you for such a cool, fun, rugged, and quality made product. btw - he has had the knife for a month know and is still as sharp as when first arrived, and even with daily use (and the occasional drop, it is very smooth movement.

Maintenance might be required
Dropped the knife once while flipping it about the bone inlay popped off. When I initially got the knife the screws were tight and I could not easily open and close the knife as would be expected of a balisong. I Had to take a screwdriver and loosen one side. Additionally I had to take WD-40 and further lubricate the joints. Latch was hard to utilize when locking in open position and closed position. I couldn't close the knife and needed to squeeze extra hard on handles to lock. Disappointed.
