The famous Balisong aka. ‘Butterfly Knife’ or ‘Fan Knife’. Originating from the Batangas Province in the Philippines this is a utility blade historically carried by ‘the average man’ in the Philippines. It was used as a shaving razor and general tool and concealed by the carrier as a weapon of defence. Filipino carriers of this weapon would practice ‘flipping’ as an art in order to both amuse themselves and practice hand dexterity in order to deploy the blade with a single hand for defensive use.
These MTech Balisongs nicknamed ‘The Twist’ feature a polished stainless steel handle, T-Lock and brushed blunt training blade. It is substantially constructed to an extremely high quality with coloured grooves in the handles. A stunning training blade.
