Butterfly Knives

Why my son loves butterfly knives (balisong).

Here’s a video of what balisong aficionados(as) do. This is NOT a promo, I couldn’t find my son’s video. Girls can do these tricks also, you know.

It’s a thrilling experience to be able to catch the knife without getting nicked.

I cringe, but at the same time feel awed, whenever I see my son do his tricks. However, he only started this obsession around 15 or 16 years of age. The clicking sound that is produced when the knife is opening/closing is a familiar sound in this household, hours on end when My Precious is practicing.

I hope his cousin, the world traveller,  will see this video and send me a video of herself doing these tricks. hint. hint.

Having kids this young playing with knives is scary. But it looked like he was being careful. BTW, I’m at the same level as this kid. hahaha!
