'Easy' LEGO Technics Balisong Knife

Introduction: 'Easy' LEGO Technics Balisong Knife

Today, I will show you how to create a LEGO Technics Balisong knife. Unfortunately, I had to obtain most of the parts through the LEGO Mindstorm kit, which is relatively expensive to purchase, though I am sure you are able to find the parts through many other LEGO kits.

As this is made of LEGO, this shouldn't be illegal in your country and has no sharp edges. The only way you could get injured is by severe squeezing in the handle, which is almost impossible.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Collect Parts

The parts you will need for handle:
6 cross spacers
2 '5 hole space' axles
4 '14 hole' no stud bricks

After you collect these, follow the pictures. You need 2 of these handles for the knife.

Step 2: Make the 'knife' Part

Parts needed for knife:

2 '3 slot' friction snap pegs
1 cross block
1 '3 hole' axle
1 small axle spacer
1 180 degree angle element
1 '7 hole' axle

Sorry if these names are hard to understand but I got them from Lego Digital Designer, unlike the previous step because I didn't know the names.

Knife and handles should be pretty simple to assemble, use pictures for guide.

Step 3:

You are now finished. I will be developing a holster for the balisong knife soon.

Thanks for viewing, I hope you enjoy it.

    Wow, excellent design! Very realistic, functional, and cost-effective, with no special pieces that are hard to find. All the pieces in this tutorial came with my Lego NXT 2.0 set, so I was able to easily do this project without worrying about substituting pieces. Great job! I hope I see more tutorials from you soon!
