    I just got a butterfly knife and I learn a few tricks on youtube but I'm looking for a more laid out beginner to advanced technique tutorial. Anyone know where I can go, like maybe a website entirly devoted to it?

    Cause I'm really not getting far with these random google vids...

    Some of the youtube ones are good, but it's hard to learn what they're doing when the dialog is like "well um.. you take uh... this part and... sort of, you know.. like flip it to here... oh and by the way you can also hold it at a 82 degree angle, or um.. like 40... but you hold the.."

    I recommend you stuff some old clothes to make a dummy and practice stabbing it in the backyard.

    The neighbours won't bother you anymore...:D

    I collect swords. My favourite is my Windless Steelcraft Falcata

    I chop shit in my garden all the time, it takes years to get to grips with sword sharpening though.

    best advice is just always use the handle attached to the flat side of the blade. and maybe put a strip of tape over the blade, though I never did. then just start messing around with it.

    .. This is a generic balisong , see the locking latch is on the sharp end the knife,, this will damage the blade, Though the damage can create a serrated edge, This is what the ripper blade on the top the knife is for..... the edge of the indent on the top the knife should be a bit sharp.. So when stabbing the top of the blade RIPS and does not give a nice clean cut.... Damage to assailants is maximized.. :sunny:

    this is what I carry. more practical than a balisong in my opinion. and faster.

    I have had tremendous success with this knife. Any target that I have used it on has not stood a chance. The balance of the knife is without question one of the best. :)

    you might want to try taping the blade like somebody else said. it's probably easier if you're learning to switch hands or do throws and catches. i was learning to roll the blade over the back of my hand and catch it with my fingers...got a couple nicks from that, but it's good motivation to do it right next time.

    my blade broke from excessive use though, so i dont get to do it much anymore

    That's actually not faster. I used to carry a stiletto blade which is a lot like yours and no matter how fast you are, it takes 2 motions to draw and pop out the blade.

    With this balisong as soon as I take it out of my pocket it's out if I quick drawl it. I actually tought myself my one-motion draw cause I don't like the way that asshole on youtube told me to do it. My way is more efficent anyway.

    But I'm a bit of a knife nut and this is the fastest one I've ever owned.

    yeah, I know how to do that. but there is more room for error than a torsion bar knife. especially in the heat of the moment. just keep doing it until it's an automatic motion for you.

    I want to learn as many moves as I can that don't require release of the blade before I get into the fancy crap. I'm not even using the bite handel untill I get the 'feel' for it's balence perfect.

    I never bought one of these before cause I thought it would be hard to even get a basic jist for it. But I've taken to the basics like a fish in water so I'm not worried. Ultimate knife... and it's legal to carry in Pa too!

    Tape is for pussies! :p

    And I'm really not too worried about the stress level on the blade right now. It's a quality blade but I got it off a friend for 5 bucks so I'd just gonna beat it to shit practicing then when I get good enough I'll buy a fancy ass fucking blade! :D

    damn, $5 definitely works.

    I have a Benchmade balisong, and paid way too much for it. but it is pretty fuckin sick.

    They still have stores like that. Usually at farmers markets and quait shit like that. I bought this nasty trench knife that you help like a pare of brass knuckles. I got rid of them though... just too fucking illegal. :p
