the spear blade balisongs are new and unique

A dull blade to practice balisong tricks
Different parts of a Balisong
Bite Handle
The handle that closes on the sharp edge of the blade.
Kicker (or Kick)
Area on the blade that prevents the sharp edge from contacting the inside of the handle and suffering damage. This is sometimes supplanted by an additional tang pin above the pivots.
The standard locking system, which holds the balisong closed. Magnets are occasionally used instead.
Latch, Batangas
A latch that is attached to the bite handle.
Latch, Manila
A latch that is attached to the safe handle.
Latch, Spring
A latch that utilizes a spring to propel the latch open when the handles are squeezed.
Safe Handle
The handle that closes on the non-sharpened edge of the blade.
Latch gate
A block inside the channel of the handles stopping the latch from impacting the blade
The base of the blade where the handles are attached with pivot pins.
Ikoma-Korth Bearing System. A high end ball bearing system that maximizes smoothness, found in high-end custom balisongs.
Small curve found on some balisongs just above the kicker, that allows you to sharpen the blade more easily.
Unsharpened spine of the blade that is angled to appear as if it were sharpened. (many spear point balis actually have an edged side and a swedge side instead of two sharpened sides)
