    Hi!

    Recently I've made some sketches of my balisong knife - I want to do one for myself. Maybe you will have any suggestions or advices about design?

    Thanks

    IMHO Bali 2 is one I'd love to see made. Really appeals to my tastes. That blade grind looks like it'd be a little difficult to achieve.

    nice designs and renders. You have CAD-Fu skills.

    It appears, the kick pin screws and the latch block screws (inside ones) are a bit too close to the edge and your chamfer is going to cut into the screws during finish or the screw heads are going to hang over the chamfer and you will get picked apart for that.

    is the hole on the back end of the latch a spring hole? Where will it hook? if not, how do you minimize latch clash?

    Thanks,


    Blade grind definitely will be really hard to achieve - but I will try to do my best.


    Thank You for advice.

    Yes, this is spring hole. I've planned to do it like this (red circles are pins and green line is spring):

    If you go into production with the spring version you might review that patent. They actively protect it.

    What CAD program are using?

    Good to know - is this BM patent?

    I'm using AutoCAD.

    Remember this design?

    I've decided to do some practice before grinding it (grinds, beveling, rounding etc.). I've took piece of carbon steel and now it looks like this:

    I think you have mad skills my friend, as my sons always says, lol. I would say that you can grind a nice blade.

    According to me. That's the perfect folding knife and I really like the handgrip.

    I think number two is awesome. Anything with that sort of color
    I had an idea too. You know the bench made 42 I hope put around the holes that red color and the latch that same color. Or something similar but I do love option 2
