Pros: Blade Material, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Ease of Opening
I have always like the Balisong style, so I thought with the sale I would try one of these. If you do the best place for it is in a glass case and not to be used. I used it as it was marketed. The looks are very attractive and the size does make it very easy to add to your key chain. However, within two weeks I lost a main screw and washer holding the closure clasp together and this made the Balisong completely unusable and un-safe. Before this I had used the bottle opener and the Balisong does flex, so much care needs to be exerted when using that feature. The Balisong also features two paper cut outs on either side. I can only assume that is what these cut outs are for, they are too small for seat belts or other items. These features are about as worthless as cutting as board with a screwdriver. One last note, I did drop my keys once and the Balisong came off the ring very easily.
