This is a quality piece. This is the best in it's fit and finish are great and really hold up well. It is great for an edc as it's light weight help it deploy fast. As a flipper it is on the light side. Quality balisongs are a big investment and if you are a first time balisong buyer or want one for EDC this is it. If you are wanting to flip or you are an experienced flipper you might want to try one of the 60 series balis as they carry more weight for tricks.

Keep making these, the 51 is hands down the best butterfly knife there is out there that’s constantly available. Thank you Benchmade for such an incredible piece of art. I’m gonna buy another for a mint display. Flipability is on point, weights amazing, sharper than an angry Russian supermodel off her latest bottle of whiskey, you name t. Incredible. Great knife from Benchmade as always!

I've owned this knife for almost 3 years, so it's high time I wrote this review. I own 9 Bencmade knives, and this one is carried the most. It is on the light side for a balisong, which makes it extremely nimble and fantastic at rebounds, but not the best at rollovers. It has little handle play if tightened properly, and I recommend loctite. It is very durable, I have used, abused, and dropped it many times, and it works like a charm. Like any flipper worth his salt, I've cut myself a number of times (by my own ineptitude), and this leads me to another benefit of a lighter Balisong, which is that though just as sharp, it doesn't cut as deep as a heavier Balisong. Best of all, this knife is covered by the best warranty in the industry, and indeed, the best customer service I've ever encountered. In summary, stop reading and just buy this knife.

Wow!

Once you get use to the light weight, there is nothing like it! Benchmade managed to perfect an EDC Balisong! I've dropped it three times (twice on a concrete front porch) and no blade chipping or scratches on the G10 (can't say the same for my BRS Replicant)**although BRS also makes great flippers**). I use this on duty as an LEO and I like it because I barley notice it's there, due to the weight. When I'm bored, out comes my favorite flipper!!

In summation, as we all know, Benchmade quality, warranty and customer service is bad none,the best out there. If you do your research on balisong forums, this knife is a "must have" for many reasons that you will become evident when you have it in your hand. There are some great Balis out there, but this one is a no brainer!!!

I love this knife. Super sharp out of the box. Just a little bit too light for flipping but it's balanced pretty well. This is my edc and for that I would recommend this knife 100% for flipping i think it's a great starter knife! Thanks again benchmade for quality products!

This blade is great quality and lightweight for every day carry. The fit and finish are superb and I am very happy with this choice. As far as flipping, I prefer a heavier balisong, especially for momentum based tricks. If you want a knife for flipping only, there are better options out there. If you want a do-it-all functional knife that's also a decent flipper, this is the knife for you.

Nice balisong, flips great. After a while the screws came loose and i lost the latch and pocket clip. Im sending it back to benchmade and im sure they will make it like new.

Joshua: i believe the the green scaled version is a bladehq exculsive model 51-1601 is im not mistaken.
