We’ve highlighted some butterfly trainers on the Butterfly Knife blog before, but I wanted to highlight these Bartender “Bottle Fly” butterfly knives.
These types of knives are great because sometimes you want to practice your flipping skills, but you can’t legally carry a butterfly. Or, maybe you’re going somewhere it would be in bad taste to be flipping your butterfly around. When you’re faced with those situations, just bring one of these butterfly bottle openers with you. They really are great; they allow you refine those butterfly skills legally whilest also removing the chance of nicking your knuckles with a sharp blade.
These are pretty inexpensive and a lot of fun. Plus, you can go to the bar and open your drink with style. Talk about impressing your friends and the ladies, right?
Get your Bartender “Bottle-Fly” at Blade HQ and see how much fun you can have with a butterfly bottle opener!

You already love the Alpha Beast. Now it’s time to meet the BRS Replicant: As you may already know, BladeRunnerS Systems (BRS) was founded by avid butterfly flippers and gear enthusiasts, so these people have a passion for the products they make.

There’s not a whole lot that’s new in the butterfly world as far as products go, so I thought I’d highlight this gem: You might not be able to bring your bali along everywhere you go, but that’s ok because you can bring this guy with you. USB drives are super handy and are nice … Continue reading
One custom knife maker we haven’t touched on yet is Reese Weiland. Reese first became interested in knives at age 12, and he’s been a member of the Knifemaker’s Guild since 1988. I really like custom knife makers because they typically take a lot more creative liberties in their work. This means the knives they … Continue reading
I recently stumbled upon this beauty: I’ve always been a sucker for a good Damascus blade. I mean, Damascus just looks awesome. For me, the patterns remind me of fingerprints. These patterns are beautiful, and each Damascus blade is unique due to the nature of Damascus. This Bear Song is actually a collaboration between Bear … Continue reading
In a previous post, we touched on the difference between pin and screw construction, but I want to elaborate on the differences between the two of them. The type of construction in a balisong is simply how the blade is connected to the handles. There are two types of construction: pin and screw. It’s easy … Continue reading
We are pretty fond of Benchmade over at Blade HQ. I know I just barely published a post on the Benchmade 53, but I came across this while I was browsing on our website and had to share: This is a Benchmade 49-03, and it is a very rare butterfly. It’s number 23 out … Continue reading
Benchmade is well seasoned when it comes to butterfly knives; the company got its start making butterfly knives, hence the company’s butterfly logo. We’ve already touched on most of Benchmade’s butterfly knives that are still in production, but there’s still one we haven’t covered yet: the Benchmade 53 Bali-Song. The 53 was designed by … Continue reading
Balisongs are amazing, but sometimes you need something you can take with you anywhere, and let’s be honest; not all places are knife friendly. When you find yourself in those situations, consider the BaliYo: The BaliYo was created by Spyderco, and it’s actually pretty cool. The BaliYo functions just like a butterfly knife because you can flip … Continue reading
