An older boy was opening and closing his brass-handled butterfly knife. In those days, kids carried things like that without being sent to concentration camps for reeducation. The same boy was in my Boy Scout troop and always had a thing for knives, now that I think about it. I was fascinated by the way the handles opened and closed. At the time I assumed it took a great deal of skill. When you hold the safe handle, the opening action of the knife puts the blunt spine of the knife in contact with your hand, but not the edge of the knife.

Presented here are the methods I use most often. Squeeze the handle or flip the latch with your pinky to disengage the latch. Shift the closed knife to put the live handle to the outside, away from your palm.

Flip the live handle out and away from your palm while grasping the safe handle. As you flip the handle open, rotate the safe handle in your hand… …and let momentum swing the live handle around as you do so. Done properly, the first shift, flip, and rotate are all one motion. As the safe handle rotates, snap your hand to flip the life handle back against your hand. The spine of your balisong will slap lightly against your hand on the outside. Double-edged butterfly knives are not recommended for beginners.

Snap your hand again to let the live handle snap back down, into your palm. The act of rotating the safe handle to snap the blade spine and live handle against the back of your palm, then into it, is what gives this opening its flashy look. Closing the Balisong To flip the balisong closed, snap the live handle up and over the back of your hand, rotating the safe handle as you do so.

As the live handle comes around and falls down, snap it against the back of your hand… …and as it stops, snap it closed, moving your fingers out of the way to let the handles close. Streamlined Balisong Opening Release the latch as before and shift the knife so the live handle is pointing out, away from your palm. Flip the live handle out and away, rotating the safe handle as you do so… …and letting it come down and around in one fluid motion.

Open your fingers to receive the handle… …and the knife is open in one simple rotate-and-flip without flashy handle snapping. You can arc the knife closed by reversing the flip and arc. This was the first opening and closing I ever performed.

Reverse Grip Balisong Opening Grasp the balisong with the handle pointed up. Release the latch and make sure the knife is oriented with the live handle pointed out, away from your palm.

Flip the live handle down, rotating the safe handle as you do so… …And jog your hand to snap the handle back up as the knife rotates. If balisongs are legal where you live, make sure you take the time to buy or make a trainer. You must have a dull edge with which to practice. Train safely and flip actively. Bookmark the permalink.

Butterfly Blade: Balisong as a Viable Tool for Self-Defense?

Etymology[ edit ] The name "balisong" is likely derived from barangay village Balisong, part of the municipality of Taal , Batangas province, which along with the neighboring barangay Pandayan, were the original manufacturing centers of the knives in the Philippines. The two barangays were home to a blacksmith industry that also produced other bladed implements such as bolo knives. Other names for the knives in English include "fan knives" and "butterfly knives" from the motion, and "click clacks" from the sound they make when they are opened and closed. History[ edit ] The origin of the knives is unclear. Oral histories claim that the knives were first created in the Philippines in AD. However, there is no documentation or archeological evidence to back this.
