    How did I get into first balisongs?

    Well it goes back to when I got into knives. I was about 6 months old and my uncle sat me on his lap and started lOokin throwing gun/knife magazines and he let me hold his knife. Little did he know then he had just put a spark in that little boy. Ever since then Ive been a big knife fan. If I saw a knife I didn't have I bought it. Well last year I was on my way home from a ski trip in Colorodo, and I picked up a cheap balisong from a convenient store. I had no idea how to flip or anything but now I am going EVERYWHERE with a balisong.

    When I was a kid the movie "Big trouble in little China" came out, there's a scene where one of the Asian gang members has a Bali. I've been into them ever since. Only started taking them seriously in the last year.

    Long story.... but I'll try to keep it short.

    Three of my buddies and I were walking around town, looking for this one clothing store for men. We've heard that they had some really nice suits on sale. Couldn't find it after walking around for 45 minutes.

    We somehow ended up in a shady alley where, as fate would have it, some of our rivals (people in a bad crowd who we knew growing up) happened to be hanging out that day. It was a group of about 4 fat bastards. After exchanging a few words, it escalated quickly into an all out brawl between us. Bunch of them and us had knuckle dusters, switchblades, chains, and pipes. Luckily no one had a firearm or else it would have ended badly for someone that day. Anyways, it somehow jumped up a notch... and I stabbed a man in the heart, with a balisong I found on the floor.

    The police came not too soon after that but everyone managed to scatter away quickly. My buddies and I gathered back up in the office and one of them told me to find myself a safehouse or a relative close by and to lay low for a while... I kept that balisong in case they were looking for evidence.

    A couple of years later, I found out about the JerzeeDevil and it rekindled some of the old memories of the knife.

    And that's how I was exposed to balisongs.


    This story may or may not be true, based on a real life story, or that of a fictional movie featuring Will Ferrell.

    My friend had an Italian "Jeans knife" from over seas. Basically a butterfly knife with the pivots of a paradox. Didnt really flip but i wanted it so badly. Then i saw Two-Bit flip a bali in The Outsiders i was hooked.

    Anchorman. :bwah:

    One of the funniest movies ever. Has a bit of cult status.
    They don't actually have any balisongs in the movie, but there is a scene with a switchblade... and a grenade.

    I saw a Terry Guinn. Then I saw how much they cost, so then I bought something else.
