Butterfly Knife Training by EllingtonThis inexpensive mock butterfly knife by Ellington Manufacturing is designed only for safe training. Construction is similar in weight and action to the real thing, but durability is minimal. Still, balisong adepts need to start somewhere, and this simple and safe trainer is that set of "training wheels" you'll need. Before you wear it out, you should have acquire the skill needed to use the real butterfly knife well.

The overall length of 8-3/4 inches when open includes an unsharpened 3-3/4 inch steel blade. Handle components are all metal, and the total weight of nearly five ounces is about average for a pocket balisong. Fittings are designed to be tightened with an allen wrench and should be checked before practicing or whenever you notice a loose feeling to the trainer. The Ellington trainer isn't bulletproof, but it is built of durable components and will survive drops that might crack parts on other less rugged trainers.

Don't expect playing with this mock knife to be as satisfying as operating the real thing. Using it could save you some painful lessons, though. In most martial arts, students begin with mock weapons that approximate the weight and feel of the genuine item. Practicing with a safe version paves the way for genuine skill.
