I carry a SOG Pentagon Elite or Spyderco Endura if I want to use a Knife for daily tasks. I can open those as fast as an automatic.

Ineresting thread and comments. Balisong are legal in Oregon. Home of Benchmade and Kershaw, the two leading USA manufactures of Balisong knives.
With practice, you can draw a balisong from your pocket and open it with a latch drop move faster than any folder or auto knife except for the Emerson Wave design.
Once open and gripped in the hand, the balisong lockup is stronger than any folder and is the next best thing to a fixed blade.
When used as a self defense weapon or a tool, the opening mechanics are kept to simple opening tecniques.
The main crowd following the balisong knife on the forums today is those devoted to flipping and doing the tricks. Hey, it is FUN, why not?
turns out my dad had one in the house for a long time now. Its from Batangas. is it legal to carry in FL with a ccw?
Balisongs rock. I've seen that DVD you were talking about as wellhttp://bestmachete.net/wp-content/up...012/11/1px.png
