The Balisong or the "butterfly knife" is a folding pocket knife. Its distinction is two handles counter-rotating around the tang such that, when closed, the blade is concealed within grooves in the handles. It is sometimes called a Batangas knife, after the Tagalog province of Batangas in the Philippines, where it is traditionally made.
The design is inspired by the three images around the balisong. The image on top is where the capital where Balisong is traditionally made. The image on right is the tools that are used to create the knife. And the image on the left is, represents the use of horse's bones back in the day to make the handles for these knives. However, these handles have since adapted to use of woods, metals, and plastics.
It was said that the Balisong was commonly used by Eskrimadors to protect themselves. The quick deployment was essential when being ambushed by opponents back in the day.
With this design, we pay homage to the history and culture of creating these wonderful knives.
