    everything i like is either illegal, immoral, fattening, expensive, or impossible 😩

  • Stray03

    Reason canada Banned it is because movies make it looks "supa dangerous". They went through those 1980 martial arts bs magazines and circled a bunch of "weapons" they deemed too dangerous, including blowdart guns, ninja stars, and morning stars....Then in the 90's they did the same thing but with gun magazines therefore making a bunch of rifles prohibited for no reason other than Arnold killed a bunch of cops with them in a documentary about time traveling robots...

    I cut my self soooo bad with a butterfly knife when I was a kid, right between the thumb and forefinger. oooh I still have a wiked scar.

  • Procras10eighter 1992

    Fun fact: In the sixties and early seventies, these were included in CIA agents field kits during the Vietnam War. My grandfather has one. It has red handles and I believe it says Hackman on it.

  • Archer 07

    MANY things the government makes illegal often make no sense at all. You have pencil pushers making laws on things they know nothing about. The balisong knife is just one example of these kind of laws. Sadly it is not just knives that are affected by these uneducated politicians.

  • Kamal._.Ayyad

    The video REALLY starts at 1:28

  • Dad

    Just a typical use of The Law going on here."We have to save you from yourselves, just in case you screw up."

  • I Want To Die

    Treyarch should hire this guy to be a knifer specialist.

  • Dark Shift Music

    SO.... Basically there's no reason that it's illegal. Okay, I'll just keep carrying mine anyway, then.

  • joshthemlg pro

    it's not the knife or gun that kills, it's the person behind that weapon

  • NGMonocrom

    They're illegal because they have a bad reputation. A balisong is no more deadlier than any other knife.

  • CuffRox

    Not illegal in Colorado m8s. One of the few perks of living here.

  • Racially Insensitive Logo Prevention Task Force

    That would be fun, until you get hit in the eye with a throwing star and dressed up like a dog.

  • Dj Halfblood

    Lol he's just casually like "you open and stab..."

  • Dragonite

    All I herd was clink clink clunk bing the butterfly knife is loud

  • Tay Moh

    Reasons why to buy a trainer: 1. Real = max 500$ Trainer = max 20$ 2. Real = illegal Trainer = legal 3. Real = cut yourself and others Trainer = no cutting The rest are same.

  • Monkeytogaman

    They are legal where I live. Its pretty rad

  • CrimsonSkyz

    The balisong is illegal because people are scared of it. Canada's reason is because it's to fast for opening. I've always wanted a real one. I have a trainer but I don't take it any where because it's useless. If I had a real one it would be everywhere with me.

  • Skill-less Prepper

    not illegal in the state of Tennessee

  • Jackson Meier

    dude wtf is wrong with ur face.

  • DROWN

  • Hail to The_Rooster

    Just check your state regulations. In Texas you can't carry anything considered a "Bowie" knife. Idk the length considered but in the cities that's all the regulation we have. Country side you can carry whatever you want

  • Lucas Ramey

    Isn't that the knife that the spy uses in tf2

  • Danny Lookpoint

    Banning inanimate objects is silly . . . it's not the knife, gun, truck or bat that does harm. It's people. 12 died in NYC recently due to someone playing with a "stove". Gonna ban them, Commie Mayor DeBlasio ???

  • Anti Dem

    I don't get the appeal. My CRKT M16 with a Carson flipper mechanism opens just as fast, with much less chance of slicing my own fingers off. That said, making these illegal is another example of a-hole politicians doing something stupid because of a media-driven moral panic. Dumb and oppressive all around.

  • EliteOfGamers

    Its leggal in my country. COME TO POLAND!! KNIFES ARE LEGALL!!

  • Jason Xiong

    I live in Canada and I just got a trainer so it's okay

  • Miquel Vico

    No need for a trainer, i put cloth adhesive plaster tape along the edge of my first balisong and didn't get cut once, as soon as i got the hang of it i removed the tape and that was that.

  • Monter Moner

    It's legal to own and hold an ak-47 in public where i live, DON'T EVEN ASK

  • Taurus/Hipoint Enthusiast

    It is illegal like everything else because of MORONS. Eh who`d a thunk hahahahaah

  • Matt Sushi

    Who else is here cause CCCSSSGGOOOO

  • deep in love with mudic

    A weapon does not kill, the person behind it does, a knife can be far more deadly that a gun if used properly, the reason it's illegal is because people try to show it off and cut themselves or other bc they have not been trained, and it looks different that our knifes, so people are afraid of it, if u are going to use a weapon, learn how to use it first

  • Gerhard Biebl

    I do not know if this shit is illegal in the US, but it indeed is here in Germany. Not because it is sooo dangerous, but because our politicians have seen it in several B-movies where they have been swiftly flicked around by some bad guys to impress morons. Consequently, they were indeed impressed and frightened. These knifes are shit, they are instable and fidgety. Would be fun if you carried it in your pocket and it opens accidentally. So i really do not regret not possessing one. Knife fighting is a serious martial art and relies on far better tools than that.

  • Kenneth Ravanilla

    Balisong originated from Philippines,and are available to CS:GO

  • Knife Nut

    Balisongs are legal to own and carry in my state.. 😆

  • Kevin Fegan

    I really respect Doug, and he may specifically know that in one or a few cases, this is the reason that butterfly knives are illegal in those few places. But more likely, he is using his intuition, or his knowledge from stories he has heard, which may or may not be true. If he has first hand knowledge then I'm sure he is telling the truth and as I said, I respect that.But it's not possible that he could know this for all the places in the world that these knives have become illegal. I'm sure that the reason in many different places is different for each place.Logically though, overall, there are many more cases of people injuring themselves with many everyday items, including other types of knives, and none of these are illegal/banned. And most times these other items cause injuries that are much more serious than you could ever get by injuring your self while mishandling a butterfly knife.Consider falls from ladders, hand axe injuries, lawn mower injuries, and even kitchen knife injuries while preparing food. Aside from for example, stabbing yourself in the eye, accidental self-injuries from mishandling a butterfly knife are mostly limited to small cuts on the hand/fingers, that really wouldn't require any medical attention in the hospital.The more likely reason is that the PERCEPTION is that these knives are used frequently in crimes.

    If we keep protecting stupid people we will never progress. No need to bring up religion specifically but you can find evidence that if the dark ages never happened we'd be in space ships flying all over the universe by now. If we hadn't condoned the idiots we'd be farther in life....

  • Biggie Cheese
