BRSBB: Barebones
Bladerunners Systems

Introducing the Barebones! The foundation of the Barebones' design consisted of two objectives; to make a balisong that everyone could afford and to maintain the high-performance level that BRS Knives are known for. Well, goal accomplished in the Barebones. It's a sleek design that takes similar form and dimensions as its predecessors (Alpha Beast and Replicant), but fuses its own unique attributes to make it a one of a kind flipper. 

The Barebones features all-stainless-steel framed handles that are skeletonized to maintain optimum balance and reduce weight. You will find that Barebones is a very neutral handling balisong. It can be flipped fast or slow and really can adapt to a variety of manipulation styles. Coupled with extended handle dimensions the weight is very well distributed.

Blade steel is the ever robust 154CM to provide a lifetime of cutting performance and reliability. Hardware is all stainless steel including the latch. 

Whether you are just starting out as a flipper and new to balisongs or a long-time veteran of the sport, you will find the Barebones to be an optimum performer. Like all BRS products, it's battle-ready out of the box and has performance at the forefront of design!

my first quality Bali
Its great and ready to flip,its loctited out of the box and really nicely tuned.It feels like its 5 oz despite being way heavier,there are two problems.1. is the zen pin nipple that concaves to hold the zen pin which is not necessary and is sharp.2. the spine is blocky so chamfer it or crown it out of the box,its noticable and uncomfortable for long flipping.the blade is sharp and i cut my self doing a zen rollover first thing out of the box. Overall:Buy it as you first budget bali,but dont buy it if you have something better

Barebones is my first Balisong
First impression; the balance and feel is great. Latch is heavy amd makes the bite handle slightly harder to throw. Handle chevons, cutouts, pin nipple, blade spine, are very sharp. These things all hurt and make flipping painful. The my blade came nice and sharp. Blade chips kind of bad on concrete, although I'm not experienced enough to know if this is just plain abuse or a bad heat treatment. I know what I bought and the price is good. If I had known this wasn't ready for flipping out of the box I would of shelled out $20 more for a Dog bite 3.1.
