Introduction: K'nex Balisong/Butterfly Knife

Picture of K'nex Balisong/Butterfly Knife

i know that the handles are not very stable, the smoothness of opening is not very good, and its very large. aside from that, this butterfly knife actually has a recognizable blade and handles that cover the blade (somewhat) when closed. plus, it even locks open.
and sorry for any blurriness.

Step 1: Blade

Picture of Blade

the broken 90* connector is not a design requirement, it was simply the piece i had available when i built this. a 45* could also be used in its place.

Step 2: Handle 1

Picture of Handle 1

once again sorry for the blurriness
the two pin clips are used to prevent overturning when opening
the piece between the two 90*'s is the female connector for a ball joint

Step 3: Handle 2

Step 4: Connecting

woohoo!! more blurriness!
connect the handles to the blade.
be careful to note the direction of the pin clips on handle 1.

The degrees symbol isn't right. If you have used the Alt key, then do this: Alt+0 . You will come up with this: º . Hope this is some advice. =:^D

Can this do tricks like a real butterfly knife, or is it just switch blade. Because im looking for a knex ballisong to practice with so i wont cut my self with the real thing

The Sensei (author)halo992010-12-30

this one is kinda flimsy for trying tricks but i do have a reverse ballisong tht would be ok for tricks, also you can get practice butterfly knives or for a cheaper alternative put a strip of electrical tape up the blade to cover the edge. hope this helps =:^b
