It is definitely not for self defense. That is what my LCR or Glock is for.

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?
