    >I of course learned the hard way of how to open it correctly and quickly with the blade facing AWAY from your hand. ha.ha..ha.

    Funny, most balisongs I've seen/used are double-edged. If you open it properly the blade doesn't ever touch your hand.

    There are some balisong blades that single edged. If you have opened up the wrong way the blade would be towards your hand when you fliped it open.

    This is true Miguksaram, but I think they're getting nit-picky because if you work a balisong well, the blade shouldn't touch your hand at all, 1 sided or 2.

    Hince the learning lesson I got. This incident happened when I first learned how to use it. Bottom line, I was a dumbass and didn't pay attention to the hand positioning on the grip.

    But of course. I simply dabbed my other finger in it place some on my tongue and then spat it out followed by a high pitch scream like that of pushing out a gall stone.

    What is the difference between butterfly swords and butterfly knives. I need to order a pair of butterfly knives today. However, I mostly see butterfly swords advertised. Any information would be helpful. Thank you.
    Alittle late but...

    In wing chun terms, "butterfly swords" and "butterfly knives" are synonamous.

    As I understand it, the "dao" in "bat chum dao" means knife. The term for sword in Cantonese is usually "geem". However both "butterfly swords" and "butterfly knives" refer to the same weapons in wing chun.

    I think the confusion exists because there was already another weapon known as a butterfly knife (singular) when the wing chun weapons got ported over and translated.
