Warhawk Butterfly Knife
Butterfly knives are a type of pocket knife where the blade is folded between two sturdy handle pieces while it is not in use. Also called a balisong after the region of the Philippines it originated from, the popularity of this stealthy weapon increased dramatically after US soldiers came home from WWII. While there is little known about the history of these lethal pocket knives, what is known is that balisongs quickly became popular for self-defense due to their covert size and quick accessibility. Shifting from deadly slicers to dexterity trainers, these covert folding knives are the adult version of a fidget spinner. Weapons should never be used as toys, but these pocket butterfly knives toe the line with the various tricks you can do while opening and closing them!
This decorated stainless steel blade has the distinct print of the legendary 'shark mouth' or 'shark teeth' that were painted on the front of fighter planes during WWII. This menacing smile not only struck fear into the hearts of the enemy, but also showed allies what side the plane was fighting for. To commemorate these flying aces, this tactical folding knife features the shark teeth in white and red on the black background of the blade. Teeth are used for protection, and this grinning fan knife reminds you of that! The durable handle pieces are white coated 440 stainless steel, with a 'sandwich handle' construction, meaning that the two handle sides are attached with a third piece to allow smoother movement. Curved slightly to match the curve of the blade edge, both the safe and bite sides of the handle latch snugly together with the spring clasp at the bottom. The all white handle features black inlays for a non-slip grip and is vented with holes to decrease weight and keep the knife balanced.
Practice your flipping skills with this CS:GO-style folding pocket knife which is about 9.5 inches when opened, and folds to 6 inches, concealing the approximately 4-inch blade. At 6.8 ounces, this sharpened pocket batangas knife will not weigh you down, but it has enough weight for the momentum to perform pendulum swinging tricks. Perfect your opens and closes slowly at first, until you are comfortable with the slicing straight edge of this stealth butterfly pocket knife. Soon you will be lightning fast with your shark mouth blade so you are ready to defend yourself at a moment's notice. Until then, let the security of the sturdy construction put your mind at ease. The latch will prevent any unwanted unfolding of this protective weapon, but the latch is spring assisted for fast release when you choose to unfold it.
This is a great gift for any collectors of WWII memorabilia, CS:GO knives, or simply fan blades! This everyday carry knife will be useful for cutting in any situation, but will also send a message to enemies that are close enough to see the shark teeth smiling when the blade is unfolded. This live balisong will be the ace in your pocket as you float like a butterfly, but sting like a butterfly knife!
