Decent Knife for Flipping Practice
I first ordered this knife to have something cheap to flip. All of the stories you have heard about there being no good balisongs under $100 are absolutely true. The first one I bought broke developed a stress fracture near the top of the safe handle within two weeks. I sent it back for a replacement which was met with no problem at all from knifecenter who sent me out a new one promptly. The second trainer did last a little longer, closer to two months, before fracturing in the exact same spot as the first one. Aside from the fracturing, it was a well balanced trainer. Just realize you are only going to get a few weeks to practice with it.
