Step 1: Parts

Picture of Parts

these are the peices you'll need.
grey clips-26
white rods-3

metallic blue clips-1
concrete/silver clips-1

Step 2: Handles

Picture of Handles

pic 1 first simple handle insert 1 yellow rod into holes
pic 2 second handle, harder to make. I'm too lazy to tell how to make it.

Step 3: Body

Picture of Body

this is the real different part of the knife.

pic. 4 same as pic 3.
pic. 5 add blue metallic clip on other side.
pic. 6 another angle.
pic. 7 add the concrete/silver rod for the blade

Step 4: Adding Handles to Body

Hellchild (author)hiyougami2009-06-02

thanks bro, but you should really thank J_SCAP

garrett10 (author)2009-02-21

This is so awesome! Just as a tip add silver spacers inbetween the gaps in the handle and it feels a lot better. 5*'s

Hellchild (author)garrett102009-02-21

please clarify.

T.E.A. (author)2008-08-22

T.E.A. (author)thebboy2008-08-03

Hellchild (author)thebboy2008-01-24

i did

pindalanderz (author)2008-07-30

just a suggestion: if you don't have any knex don't buy go buy some. you can get a real one of these for like 8-40 dollars depending on the quality.

Hellchild (author)pindalanderz2008-08-01

... this is a toy. it's not supposed to be real, besides real ones are illegal in most of the states

pindalanderz (author)Hellchild2008-08-01

I looked that up... if it is under 5 inches it is not considered a martial arts weapon and is therefore legal if not concealed. (at least in North Dakota).
here is the link: butterfly knife regulations link
read the preview... It does say that my state is generally knife-carrier friendly, however, a lot of states should have similar rules.

Hellchild (author)pindalanderz2008-08-01

live in CO itz illegal

maggotmatt (author)2008-06-06

what are you gunna do with that? poke someone to death?

Hellchild (author)maggotmatt2008-06-11
