Balisong or butterfly knives became legal for civilians to carry in Texas and I have been curious about them. I’ve trained in the Filipino martial arts for several years, but never received any instruction in the manipulation of this style of knife.
A search or LF yielded scattered references to them. It is obvious that some board members are carrying them for serious use, but not much information beyond that.
I am just a regular old civilian, but would like to hear some qualified opinions on this style of knife.
Pros and cons?
Best brands of knives and trainers?
Are there any good sources of training and/or reference materials you would recommend?
Thank you for your input.
