    I believe that him flipping it open is an illusion. That looks like a switch blade, a china copy of a microtech. At 8 seconds you can see that the handles aren't right, the blade looks like it fold outs sideways, you can also see the sideways pivots at about 6 seconds if you look close. This prop blade was probably designed just because no one knew how to open one.

    I'm pretty sure it was in the transporter that I saw a butterfly knife being used by a gang member in the beginning of the movie. I thought it was pretty cool :yuna:

    Last night on CBS the new series "Under the Dome" (based on the Stephen King novel) premiered. A benchmade 63 featured prominently in a few scenes... and of course, the balisong wielder had to be a psycho, douchebag, teenager.

    The only movie I can think of where the protagonist is a good guy who uses a balisong is Demon Knight. One of those crypt keeper movies. It is on Netflix if anyone is interested. I loved it, but I like b movies so take that as you will.

    He does stab some demons in the eye with a benchmade in the name of jesus/everyone not dieing.

    Just had the new three musketeers movie playing in the background, and realized Orlando Blooms character the Dulke of Buckingham, was playing with a bali when he captured one of the musketeers. This is kind of cool because I assume that the Movie is somewhere in the 16th century.

    That was done by Dan Inosanto. Notice his flipping. Simple moves done fast and to perfection.

    The Big Brawl - Jackie Chan

    Ron Max was manipulating the balis which were customs. Really great for 1980.

    I am going to go watch that movie now! I believe that the balisong was made in France. I seem to remember reading that on someone's website within the knife community.

    There's some stephen king tv show out called "Under the Dome" (its free to stream on amazon prime) there's some really creepy stalker boyfriend with what looks like a 62. It's only like 2-3 episodes in so I'm not sure how often it will show up.

    Ron Perlman is wielding a balisong like a boss in several prominent scenes in Pacific Rim.


    p.s. If you go see it, stay through the credits.

    I can confirm. He does wield what appears to be a chrome CCC balisong in the movie. Add in some sound effects and bam! He looks like a badass haha.

    It's one good movie though. I highly recommend it.

    "Bones" starring Snoop Dogg, it was his weapon of choice all thru out the movie. Brief appearance in "Friday the 13th VIII : Jason Takes Manhattan" By one of the punks trying to mess with Jason. It was also shown briefly in "Invasion USA" by some lady who learns the hard way that cocaine is a hell of a drug ! :bwah:. I don't know for sure but I think the balisong made an appearance in "Three O'clock High" As well, this kid has been singled out by a bully so they try and frame him with a knife to get him kicked out, possibly a balisong.
