    No Perma, that's the first i've heard of this. But your post immediately took me back to my construction days, I remember some of the guys (i think they did carpet/flooring) used what was called a hawkbill blade with a standard box cutter. i remember thinking at what badass weapons one would make. It would be interesting if that was the case. A hawkbill blade is much more intimidating than a standard box cutter blade.

    I believe that you are correct, and that Tuhon Buck taught it. Of course, with his background in Mande Muda Silat, he would be well versed in its use.

    I repeat, more chance of damage to the bearer than the intended victim.

    I think it is funny when you see people spinning it around their index finger as if their opponent won't have the inspired idea of grabbing it, twisting, and ending the attack right there..............or worse.

    Well, nothing says you have to circle it around your hand just because you can. If you don't, I don't see it being more dangerous to the user than any other knife.

    Yes, nothing says you have to, but if you see all the major practitioners doing it there is a sense of obligation to do it "right".

    Yep, or it getting caught on a fold of clothing, etc.

    I guess flipping balisongs around is passe.
