    Hey, I live in Sydney and importing laws are very strict here so I am looking for a Butterfly knife trainer that is located inside Australia so it doesn't have to go through customs, as I've already been pulled up about trying to get a trainer in :unintroduced:
    Thanks Devils.
    Don't currently have a limit on how much I'm going to spend

    About the only thing you can import is a Baliyo pen. You could make a trainer yourself.

    I think making my own trainer is off the table. I'm about as handy as an armless person.

    Hey mate, just pm'd ya.

    To be honest - and each to their own - if finance is an issue for you, I can help you with getting a live bali that suits your budget than a trainer once I've got my permit. You can always tape it and have a good feel for a bladed bali (albeit minute added tape weight). Never taped mine when I was a teenager and loved everytime my hand was covered in claret. But I don't encourage nor condone irresponsible practice. ;P

    If he could do that, wouldn't he just make a live balisong?

    Can they be brought in in pieces? Handle here, blade there. Oh look some hardware!

    By law, it is still illegal.

    It states Balisongs as a whole, or in parts.

    Either end can get seized, so you're left with half a knife that you cannot do anything with.
    Or, you don't get anything at all, but a seizure notice, and slapped with a moderate fine on top.

    Was wondering about that as I've never heard of anyone getting done except for hearsay.

    Just checked your application form for you Vic guys:APPLICATION FOR POLICE CONFIRMATION FOR THE IMPORTATION OF WEAPONS (FORM B709B). Man, you guys get the rough end of the stick! Our application is just a one pager and not as detailed.

    The B709 won't get you a balisong. They are now only for

    Daggers
    Blowpipes and darts
    Nunchakus
    Crossbows and parts
    Slingshots and parts
    Star knives
    Throwing knives
    Throwing blades
    Throwing spikes

    You need customs approval not the police to import a balisong. Have a look at http://www.customs.gov.au/site/page4372.asp#ImportingWeapons

    Never heard of anyone getting a permit though.

    Yeah you can.

    It's the same form you fill out to import Meth Amphetamine, and heroin, and other such products .... :devilroll: :devilcorn:
