    Just another variation of the “war” between fan boys. The Apple fan boys vs Android fan boys is the ultimate online “war”.

    Knife styles and knife brands are a personal preference. I am thankful for so many choices. Balisong is one of choices which seems to be polarizing.

    Doesn’t matter the company. Look at YouTube. Who has the strongest lock? Or then. Lock strength testing. Or similar. What’s the plan here? Waiting for a fail? How did we all survive will slip joints. Use the knife how it’s supposed to be used. Progress in tools is great, but to abuse the tool and therefore deliberately make it fail is not very smart.

    It’s point of an old friend of mine, a man with a wooden leg, a artificial eye, three fingers on his right hand, and a consumptive cough. Being unable, naturally, to back himself, he leaves things to me. So, for the sake of argument,say it’s my point.

    Still, I don’t get the relevance or the idea even, but ok.

    Lol. Thos thread took a turn. Not every knife produced has a legitimate purpose. We appreciate and collect sharp things. I have an Esee cleaver that has no advantage over my old cleaver except it is just really, and I mean really, cool. If a knife doesn't fit your style, something else will and our styles are always changing. BTW, I agree with Mr. Dungfoot, Zero Tolerance knives are fantastic.

    I enjoy carrying and using my Benchmade 32. Great blade and carries light. I do like to pair it with a slip joint.
