Butterfly knives anyone?
Fun, but very impractical.
I still don't understand why they are illegal here in MA, yet I can still own regular folding blade knives. I can flip out my blade on one of my regular folding knives 5 times faster than I can open a butterfly knife.
Same reason the libs banned the 50cal and "assault weapons". They look scary so they must be bad.
I'm from MA and i carry a butterfly knife as an EDC.
The lock on this butterfly knife is about 10 times stronger than a regular fixed blade knife.Not to mention it's an ambidextrous knife..
It takes a fair amount of skill to use a knife like this....dont' be so hard on your self.
Maybe your not as skilled as me.
Stronger than a fixed blade?
With your spelling and grammatical errors I'll just assume that English isn't your primary language and that you don't know the definition of the word "stronger".
Stronger than a fixed blade...yes
Did i fucking studder?
Your wrong...Any more questions?
Now get the fuck out of my thread!
Stronger than a fixed blade? Not even close. You are comparing a blade with 2 hinges that can fail under stress to a solid piece of steel.
Stronger than a standard folding blade? depends on the brands you are comparing.
A fixed blade knife doesnt really have a lock since the blade is one piece of steel and the tang is secured solidly into the handle Either way you cut (no pun intended) it, you're a moron.
...your mother is a moron but i ain't saying shit
A butterfly knife has a higher tollerance level than a normal fixed blade.
please explain why
my "tollerance" of reading threads made by idiots who can't stand to hear other people's opinions has been reached.
IL + 1
Why are you telling me this?
They're held down by screws not hinges.
Have you ever written more than 3 sentences that didn't have horrendous, middle school-type spelling errors?
Eagerly awaiting mangled response,
archangel your a stupid fuck....
No i don't write my responses....i type them.....
Any more questions?
The tollerance level can be judged by how much stress the knife is put through during opening and closing.For example,if you took a folding knife (in an open position) and banged the back of the blade on a hard surface.How many times could you do this untill the locking mechanism fails?(several hundered times maybe?)
My point is that a butterfly knife is form and function all in one.It's also has superior locking mechanism that rarely fails if ever.
Thanks,GTI your a cool guy.
Ugh! He still doesn't get it...
Seems like a lot of hand movement required to get it open compared to a decent folder. Pretty though, gives you something to do when you're watching kung fu.
