This balisong trainer measures in at 22.6 cm. This one is from the same production facility as the live balisongs with bearings that I offer. It features the handle skeletonizing many flippers drool over. These knives, trainers and combs are sandwich construction, and the heads of the screws are locked tight and ground flat, so there are no worries about screws backing out. They also have bearings in the pivots, that pretty much alleviate all blade play, and they also have a unique spring latch design that works quite well.

The classic smooth handles and skeletonizing are very attractive and provide for just the right amount of texture for flipping. The screw heads are less visible on the handles since both the handles and the screw heads have been ground level and buffed.

The blade (like the handles) is 420 stainless steel. It takes a good polish and is highly corrosion resistant: perfect for the flippers. Of course, 420 steel can’t compare to the high carbon steel used on Filipino knives as far as toughness goes, but these trainers are made for completely different uses.

The blade has a guard and very thick tang pins. This a great trainer for martial artists and flippers alike.

The bearings in the pivots are a feature commonly only seen on high grade custom balisongs that cost $500 or more: they really work very well.

You can see the spring latch assembly here. I ensure the craftsmen check out each and every spring latch before shipment. In the early days, there were some issues, but every latch in this batch pops up well.

This trainer weighs in at 4.8 oz. $65.
