Interested in learning to flip a balisong, but not in turning your knuckles into hamburger? Maybe you know someone who would like to learn how but just can’t afford the bandages. How’s this for a great option: the Bartender Mini Bottle-Fly balisong and bottle opener in one! The Bottle-Fly is balanced like a balisong, with the same motion and agility, but instead of a blade, it has a traditional bottle opener instead! This means you can learn the basics of flipping and have a useful kitchen tool to do it with!
The Bottle-Fly is made of 440 stainless steel with black, skeletonized aluminum handles. It measures 5.5” in length, so it’s easier to handle while learning than some of the longer handled trainers and knives. Weighing just over 3 ounces, this awesome little flipper is lightweight and compact so it can take the party anywhere. It even comes with a removable pocket clip to make carrying easy and convenient.
This is a fun hobby that is legal, safe, and inexpensive, and it’s something that anyone can learn to do. If you’ve read this blog previously, you’ve seen information on how to get started with a butterfly or balisong knife. The instructions for flipping Mini Bottle-Fly are the same as for flipping an actual butterfly knife, so in addition to the instructions on this blog, you can start watching YouTube and practicing your moves right away. In no time, you’ll be flipping like this guy:
