The reason for its tight restrictions is in fact due to the very thing that attracts people to it: The Balisong is fun knife to play around with. Unfortunately due to spikes in emergency room visits from irresponsible users many jurisdictions have made the ownership, use, concealment and transport of this knife either restricted, prohibited or outright illegal.

  • ALEXANDRE ARNAU

    Balisongs are perfectly legal in many places in the USA.

  • Josh Villareal

    Seriously its not illegal in Philippines..Fake idea...

  • Darkshock 42 MLG 0

    This is basically because idiots were being idiots with these knives. This isn't a reason to ban it.you don't make them more responsible by banning things. Just watch skallagrims banning objects because idiots hurt themselves rant.

  • JBryan314

    The balisong is illegal because politicians and law enforcement officers enjoy taking things away from people and throwing people in jail or ticketing them for money. No other reason at all.

  • ChedChair

    It's not illegal where I live. (Indiana)

  • DMAN D

    So because people are retards.

  • Jason Xiong

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

  • Blue Charizard

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

  • Tommy B

    All the comments are people saying "criminals could use other knives" and saying criminals use these but they're banned cause too many people cut themselves. I have a practice one that isn't sharp and I would've cut myself 100 times over already

  • John Smith

    It ain't illegal in my state

  • Yougotnomilk

    i dont give a shit if its illegal im still getting one

  • Wyatt Sowell

  • Ploxico

  • Keemstar Love 420

    So can I get the training buttlefly knife in an illegal country?

  • Lucas Ramey

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

  • Donald Allen

    I agree with Doug that's addictive to use, and it was my fidget spinner growing up.

  • KSwitchFox

    That escrima sparring helmet thoo

  • Godly Nebula

    These are legal in Missouri now.

  • Ronin Art

    100% legal in New Hampshire, several years ago our state became one of the most knife friendly in the US by repealing all knife laws and forbidding cities & towns from enacting their own. Considering this plus the fact we have no firearm restrictions beyond the federal ones and are a constitutional carry state according to the Left blood should be flowing down the streets. But the truth is NH is one of the safest places to live in the US according to FBI & CDC statistics.

  • Toasty red panda

    so its illegal because people are stupid to not buy the trainer blade

  • VenusKumar

    I looked it up in my state and it's not illegal unless you have one on you while a cop pulls you over or something and you don't tell them. I live in AZ in the United States, correct me if I'm wrong.

  • TrueGamerz

    I just got myself stabbed yesterday with a butterfly knife

  • Tacticool Unicornman

    I think that the balisong (butterfly knife) is in a way a Gentlemens blade

  • Logan Miller

    nothing some super glue wont fix

  • Gabriel Leonardo

  • Richard Feng

  • Master Ed

  • The narranimator.

    The balisong is illegal because some dude couldn't do the cool tricks and banned them.

  • RonKris

    Down vote because of several statements of misinformation. These knives are legal in the US and are sold at most places that sell knives. Check out BladeHQ etc. Schrade just made a Balisong knife made in the USA.

  • Tiny Cheddar

    what? illegal in the philippines? i just saw my classmate bring a butterfly knife in school

  • James TheDoctor Duncan

    FIRST!! And most importantly, I am NOT attempting to disparage, badmouth, or disrespect law enforcement officers (LEOs,) sheriffs, police officers, state troopers, etc., AT ALL with these comments. I used to BE a cop years ago, and I know that they are all human, can make mistakes, and may often simply not be informed on the latest laws, or possibly just, plain misinformed! Believe me, while it's part of every LEO's job to know The Law, their actual job description is only to ENFORCE the law! Unfortunately for their citizens, NOBODY is perfect, and VERY FEW AUTHORITIES have every law on the books memorized word-for-word. In fact, you'd be stunned to find out how many LEOs apprehend or arrest innocent civilians because said civilians did or possessed something that the LEOs PERSONAL BELIEFS had them mistakenly ASSUME that a law was being broken when, in fact, it wasn't! Now, with that being said, this video's description reads that you should check with local authorities (LEOs, or their Dept,) to find out if Balisongs (or anything,) are illegal where you live. For the reasons I stated above, that's just a bad idea. The only way to find out FOR CERTAIN is to talk to a criminal DEFENSE attorney, period. DO NOT consult the prosecutor's office! Not because I think THEY don't know the law, but because it's in their best interest to have their jurisdiction contain as few "deadly weapons" as possible, and they'd rather have the public misinformed in any way that's to their advantage. Quite a few of the older cops in my old jurisdiction felt the same way and would answer in the exact same way. On the plus side, you can tell when an LEO is doing that: they'll tell you that the object in your possession is illegal, but they won't arrest you or confiscate it.Again, I'm not saying all this to slam cops, or to be disrespectful toward them, I'm just saying that nobody's perfect, and we all make mistakes. But some of them may even purposely make a "mistake" if it might get a weapon off their streets, possibly save a life, make their job easier, and their jurisdiction safer. Just check with an attorney to be sure. After all, they don't ENFORCE the law, they paid a king's ransom to KNOW the law, inside and out!

  • Fyriuz

    Well I live in Norway so it's legal (I think)

  • profanepichu

  • TorroDash

    Because they are jealous of your flipping skills :)

  • Deborah van Rosmalen

    The balisong is not illegal in Germany

  • David Hughes

    The background music at 2:30 building up to 2:54 and the reason for its ban made for an odd dramatic moment.

  • Orange Oatmeal

    If it's illegal in the United States than why do I have one?

  • Datrlrykowlguw

    I'm pretty sure it's not illegal if it's dull correct me if I'm wrong

  • LagiNaLangAko23

    I heard in the past Batangueños used to always carry this like they wear undies.

  • Ruben Huerta

    switchblades are faster deploy to stabs, karambits cut their owners aswell, the irony of this

  • Samuel Gonzalez

    Was I the only one watching the video on the laptop instead of paying attention to him

  • lost charisma

    585 in the house!!!rochester ny baby!!

  • Gage Aldrich

    Literally played with one the entire time i watched this video, thank god some states in the us are cool about knife laws

  • David Spin

    Bali  song is illegal just like the switch blade, but if you live Florida and have a license for concealed carry is legal.    So there's that....

  • Dark Shift Music

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

  • Scuo

    this isint illigal in MD😃

  • jesse salazar

    This is one part i love about AZ. We are aloud to carry any size knife here and conceal is not illegal for any size either. I love carrying my pistol with a concealed fixed blade.

  • trappy chan

    They are one of the easiest weapons to conceal. Half the wearing size of an equivalent fixed-blade knife/dagger.Bulletproof vests offer little protection against stabs (and stabproof vests offer very little protection against bullets).Guns are, in general, harder to conceal, and noisier.I don't agree with bannings, but in my opinion those are the actual reasons for it.

  • Aaron Williams

    i could not find any laws on these knives so maybe someone could help me out here. in NY balisong knives are illegal but would a trainer be as well??

  • Timyo praetor

    I practice my trainer balisong with two cross motor skills deployments. regular grip and reverse. I use to practice the flipping etc, but it takes too much time.

  • Hi_Klass KicksHawaii

    Hawaii has some of the very best most relaxed knife laws on the planet... and you can't even own one of these!!!! Not even owned and stored in your house period....crazy I can walk down the street with 20 10inch blades on my belt open carry or concealed (personal choice on how you want to carry here) and it's completely legal.... I can't even legally own a balisong I don't understand it

  • Unsafe Haven

    What do you mean it it illegal in the U.S. It’s legal here in Alabama. There is only one knife that illegal and that’s the Bowie Knifes

  • Vitor Parrige

    You are incorrect my friend the balisong is not illegal in all 51states so it is not illegal on a federal level. The balisong is legal or illegal on a state to state basis! Some states such as New York or California it is illegal to carry a balisong other states It is only illegal to not tell an officer or carry it concealed! The circumstances of carrying a balisong changes from state to state!
