If you’ve ever seen a movie about greaser gangs, you’re probably familiar with butterfly knives, as one of the characters inevitably flips one around threateningly at some point in the film. For those of you that haven’t, Balisongs (as they are also known) are folding knives with dual-handles that counter-rotate around the tang of the blade. And they’re very cool. They’re also very dangerous. So, before you run out and pick one up only to chop off one of your fingers, you’d better get some practice with the Moon Boat Butterfly Knife Trainer.
This 3GR13 stainless steel blade and dual zinc handle fan knife is perfect for the first time user or for anyone looking to safely hone their skills, as the blade comes dull. Still, the action and handling of this false-knife is as authentic as any real fan knife. It’s also a legal alternative for anyone who lives in a region in which butterfly knives are illegal. And it’ll only cost you $13. [Purchase]
