The ink is indeed blue and is pretty good so far. As a pen, it writes smooth and clear. It looks like a .7 mm medium pen but I am not super sure about that. The clip is pretty good; nice and springy.
I have read a lot of complaints about it being flimsy but that may be because they bought the Black or Grey ones which are made in China and are made of lower quality materials. From what I have noticed, all of the two-tone [Two color] BaliYo are made in the USA and are made of higher quality materials and would be less flimsy and less fragile then their Chinese counterpart. I own both the USA and China versions and I can say for a fact that there is a significant difference in quality between the two and of course the USA version is overall better. You can check the BaliYo website to make sure in case that I may be incorrect.
If not that, the Baliyo may also be flimsy because well that is what the balisong [Butterfly knife] suppose to be...more or less. If it was too tight, flipping would be a little more difficult. Anyway, it is still flip-able and should not be a big issue.
I am not at all a Balisong/Butterfly knife expert nor a Baliyo expert but these were things that would have been helpful for me when I purchased mine. Bottom line, get the Made in the USA Baliyo [two-tone]. I hope this helps.
This is an excellent alternative to a balisong or "butterfly knife", but I was just not able to do tricks with it. I never did get the clips back on, and the pen itself is not a space pen like the colored baliyos but is just a plain blue ink pen. It actually stops working occassionally, and I have to leave it pointed downward for a while to get the ink to write. The plastic it is made of is tough, and it has withheld more than a few drops on the tile at school. The pins are slightly loose after about four months, but they can be tightened with a hex key.
I would recommend this product, but be aware that it is far more difficult than it seems.
Also, I found it for less than half the current price on amazon on baliyo's website. Just fyi.
So I was a little thrilled to find this product and spent an obsessive few weeks spinning and twirling it. It is not a perfect product, but it is unique and worth the money, but I wish they took the next step and built something like this that was a little more substantial, because there is room for improvement.
Pretty well constructed.
Too small. It's about a half-inch too short for my hand.
Too thin. The sides are kind of triangular but very small and it takes a little work to get used to spinning them.
Way too light. I appreciate the weights in the base, but the weight of it all makes it really tricky to do anything too difficult.
Basically worthless as a pen. I mean it is a good pen, but it doesn't lock, so the handle flops down when you go to write with it. Fine for a signature or quick note, but not for extended use and looks odd too.
Buy one. Play with it. Support this cool idea. I hope they make a better version, maybe some good lightweight metal and a way to keep it locked to actually write with.
