Silver Butterfly Knife
Constructed of 1065 German surgical steel, this exemplar butterfly knife is ready to do your bidding! From personal self-defense to opening letters, this fine edge blade can handle it all, and it has two handles to make sure of that! Also known as balisongs and batanga knives, these stealthy folding knives were first designed and used in the harsh rural countryside of Southeast Asia, where farmers had to arm and protect themselves without weighing themselves down with huge weapons. These straight blade pocketknives were available for use in an instant, after the weapon was pulled out and flipped to expose the blade. This gave it the name of 'butterfly', because of the way the handles flap like the wings of a moth or butterfly. But the sting is less than a bee, and more like a murder hornet! Given that a folding batangas knife is so easy to hide and is so dangerous when opened, this sharpened steel balisong has gained quite a reputation. The first major surge in popularity with these swinging blades happened when soldiers were stationed in the Philippines around the 1960s and ended up taking some to their home countries. Since then, folding handle balisongs have become a favorite hidden self defense weapon for civilians and a show prop for risk-taking trick artists.
This folding pocket knife is the gold, well, silver standard when it comes to weight, blade shape, and functionality. It is minimalist, no nonsense, and straight edged, giving it a beautiful clean look and contemporary style. The sturdy construction and tough materials mean these folding EDC weapons will last through all of the flipping open and closed that you can throw at it. The whole knife reaches 9" long, and has a latch to lock the handles together with either the blade out or hidden inside. The 4.25" sharpened blade will fit perfectly into the handles, folding the knife up to just over 5" when closed. You won't really feel the weight of this pocketknife at under 6 ounces, so keeping it close by won't be an issue. The vented handles of this steel balisong make for a lightweight knife, and the sharpened blade will polish up so nicely, you will see your smile reflecting back at you!
Take home this simple yet impressively sharp folding balisong, so you can open and twirl the blade around, and practice your tricks. Give yourself some peace of mind knowing you have this around in the car, house, or in your pocket as you take paths with uncertain obstacles, or meet crowds of potentially unfriendly individuals. Make sure you have a weapon and know how to use it with this classic steel butterfly knife!
