These are clones, and we carry what people ask us to. If you do not support clones... do not buy one. Wasn't that easy :)

You will never find another place with customer service like this.

First off I have never experienced awesome customer service like the owner of this site provides. He really wants you to be completely satisfied and goes to lengths you just don't find anymore.

Now the kraken clone: If you do your homework you will learn that these Chinese clones can be good but, you have to tune them properly. If you mess up with the hardware preinstalled, they thankfully provide a spare set with the order. After tuning the balisong properly it went from being a baby rattle to absolutely zero tap and surprisingly extremely little play. One thing I learned is don't tighten the zen pins too much while trying to assemble and disassemble. I am super happy with this thing for the price. Thank you Jeff for providing awesome service!

Great Service

Ordered the One Channel Kraken and received it a couple days later. After the order was shipped I received an email from Jeff advising that he had checked the knife out prior to shipping and found the bushings were undersized. He replace them with oversized bushings. When I received the knife it was adjusted perfectly the way I like it. Will probably have to apply loctite to keep it that way. I appreciate the fast service and the fact that he checked out the knife before shipping, it says a lot about his business.

I am impressed.

I just got back into Balisong collecting/flipping. I was quickly made aware of how difficult it is to purchase a brand name. Now the manufacturers that used to distribute to the major internet knife sites, now do drops on instagram where their wares are scoffed up immediately. This depressed me. Then I began reading about ‘clones’. In an insane world I believe it is ok to purchase a clone. I am particularly pleased with Slash2gash. The Kraken was my first order from them. It most definitely will not be my last. I love the Kraken. I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination. But let me just say I love this knife. Moreover, I ordered this knife on a Monday and it was in my Arizonan hands by Wednesday. Kudos and more Kudos.

Tanto blade only

Wanted a quality blade with an even grind . I make my own handles. I am not a flipper, I just like balisong knives. The blade arrived quickly and was in fact well ground and very sharp. Liked it enough to order another blade (falcon) for another build.

Definitely Worth It

While I have never operated a $300-$400 Balisong, it’s hard to imagine there could be that much quality difference between this knife and those. These are very well made.
