BAREBONES TRAINER IS HERE! When we designed Barebone's we had two objectives: 1) Make a balisong that everyone could afford, 2) Maintain the high performance level that -=BRS=- knives are known for. Now with the trainer we have achieved a third goal: To allow anyone to safely experience the art and sport of manipulation. Barebones trainer retains its original sleek design taking 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 trainer.
Featuring 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. Unlike other steel balisongs, Barebones Trainer is not overburdened with excess weight and comes in at appx 5.1 oz and remains nimble in hand. Coupled with extended handle dimensions the weight is very well distributed.
Barebones Trainer did not cut corners on blade steel. We retained a heat treated 154cm blade to provide a lifetime of flipping performance and reliability and resist bending from impact. The blade also features a crowned spine for additional comfort and handling. The 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 Barebones Trainer to be an optimum performer. Like all -=BRS=- products Barebones is battle-ready out of the box and has performance at the forefront of design!
