Butterfly knife
Butterfly knife called Butterfly knife or Bolisong

The butterfly knife or balisong(also called butterfly knife or in English butterfly knife)is a knife of Filipino origin, so called for the peculiarity of the handle, which is opened in two parts longitudinally, to discover the blade.

Also called the power container, the balisong is a knife with incredible features.

As mentioned, the peculiarity of the knife lies in the handle that opens longitudinally allows you to discover the blade, almost always monofila.

The opening is made so that it can be performed with one hand, and with a little exercise you can do it very quickly.

In addition, the closed knife can be used as a Palm Stick or as a Kubotan.



✔The Balisong is one of the traditional weapons of kali, a Filipino martial art,but it is a very widespread knife in Southeast Asia.

As you can see from the next image it is made by a few simple elements but requiring good accuracy for good balance.

✔ Given its blade masking capability and the danger of the blade, the use of balisong is illegal in Japan, Canada, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, Hong Kong and the United States.

✔ The balisong actually comes from a knife of French-Genoese origin. (again the Italians ;-))

Although it is now a widely held view that balisong is a knife born in the Philippines, it is actually of French-Genoeseorigin.

It was in fact a knife employed by naval artillerymen since at least the 1700s.

On the handle there were several notches, useful for adjusting the rise of the cannons while its tip was used to prepare the ignition and to carry out other routine operations.

The design of the knife, designed to be opened and used with one hand, was particularly useful to be used in service on ships.

A specimen of this knife, dated 1791, is on display at the Musée de la Coutellerie in Thiers, France.

✔ The Butterfly Knife, Bow tie or Balisong or even Butterfly in English arose in the 16th century, in the Philippines.

Invented by a gun soldier on the occasion of the Spanish invasion.

The Spanish conquistadors had forbidden the population to carry weapons to limit the risks of rebelling.

This knife, which at first resembled a Castilian range, was easy to conceal and went unnoticed.

Gradually, manufacturing has evolved towards the form we know now.

✔ Balisong is made with different blade shapes and sliding systems to allow a fast and precise opening.

That’s why a lot of opening tricks have developed.


A feature of the balisong is that you can also use it as a kubotan by keeping it closed and if necessary open it.

A not insignificant feature in a self-defense context to have a versatile tool.

On the market there are training balisongs that do not have the blade thread to be able to practice in the various Tricks although it is necessary to use the real balisong because you have to be able to control and “respect” the blade.

At the beginning to avoid cutting yourself you can also put some nasto on the blade.

Now you don’t need to know all these tricks, these are skills that develop the ability to open quickly, control the parts of the knife, familiarize yourself with this tool.

Surely it is useful to learn the main extractions to one hand in order to be able to quickly extract the blade.

Good training with the “power container”.

Knife is not a game!


Con una passione per la difesa personale e gli sport da combattimento, mi distinguo come praticante e fervente cultore e ricercatore sulle metodologie di allenamento e strategie di combattimento. La mia esperienza abbraccia un vasto panorama di discipline: dal dinamismo del Boxing alla precisione del Muay Thai, dalla tecnica del Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu all'energia del Grappling, dal Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW) all'intensità del Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Non solo insegno, ma vivo la filosofia di queste arti, affinando costantemente metodi e programmi di allenamento che trascendono il convenzionale. La mia essenza si riflette nell'autodifesa: Filipino Martial Arts (FMA), Dirty Boxing, Silat, l'efficacia del Jeet Kune Do & Kali, l'arte della scherma con coltelli e bastoni, e la tattica delle armi da fuoco. Incarno la filosofia "Street Fight Mentality", un approccio senza fronzoli, diretto e strategico, unito a un "State Of Love And Trust" che bilancia l'intensità con la serenità. Oltre al tatami, la mia curiosità e competenza si spingono verso orizzonti diversi: un blogger professionista con la penna sempre pronta, un bassista dal groove inconfondibile e un artigiano del coltello, dove ogni lama è un racconto di tradizione e innovazione. Questa sinfonia di abilità non solo definisce la mia identità professionale, ma dipinge il ritratto di un individuo che nella diversità trova la sua unica e inconfondibile voce e visione. Street Fight Mentality & Fight Sport! Andrea
