What is a balisong knife?
A balisong knife is the Filipino term used to describe a folding pocket knife, better known as a “butterfly knife”. The knife is equipped with two handles that rotate in such a way as to conceal the blade or flip it out rapidly. The balisong saw much use by the Filipino people as a self defence weapon and a utility tool. In modern days, the balisong or butterfly knife is outlawed in many countries and is made illegal for the same reason switchblades were.
