i can't get a balisong because it's "to dangerous" as my parents say. they wont even let me get a training blade. but i can get a baliyo so can i learn balisong tricks on a baliyo

I should note that they really don't feel the same.

The basic concepts you can learn, no doubt.. but don't expect to be able to pick up a balisong and immediately do everything you could on a baliyo. There will still be a bit of a learning curve.. but it is as close as you can get.

this is my problem,  but I play with other knves,  throwing knives, throwing stars, and fixed blade twirling.  So if your parents say that its knife play and its dangerous and you play with other kinds of knives,  Thank just say "you let me play with other knives and I'm not even asking you for a knife,  I'm asking you for a fake bladed knife with out any sharp edges"  Even though you may have to buy a training knife it's better than nothing.

Yeah, any trainer blade is wayyy better than a baliyo for practice terms. If you start with a baliyo then you are screwing yourself over, its like switching for an eli dert to a pyro, you wont build up any finger muscles (yes im telling the truth) and it will be a pain to flip bigger knives. Start with the heaviest knife you can find (or trainer) because going from a heavy to a light knife is easy and fun, but starting with a light knife and expecting your fingers to work on a heavy one is killer. I would recommend a Bear & Sons trainer balisong, I hear Bear, but it will have to do untill you can convince your parents that you will be safe and mature with a real knife.

I'm pretty impressed by anyone who can look at a drawing and decide how well the yoyo will play.

Just remember, balis arent like yoyos in terms of buying, you cant but a cheap bali thats still good, its pretty much all or nothing. The cehapest "good" balisong is the typhoon from knifekits.com, anything cheaper than that (and a few more expensive) will fall apart on you.

32 is a great knife, but not your best choice for flipping, its more of an EDC knife. I would recommend the bradley kimura 2, its cheaper and a much better flipper.

lol, I am all for lmgtfy, but dont be a d-bag, hes a noob w/ knife terms. EDC is short for everyday carry, one that is built to last and to be used. The 32 morpho is a great EDC because of its size, weight, blade steel, sharpness, and pocket clip. Its much better for using than it is for flipping. The Kimura or the 42 are more for flipping, though that doesnt mean they cant be EDC'd; quite the opposite. I usually will EDC my kershaw leek or my ecos knives custom kiridashi.

i always wanted a leek. i ended up njust getting a kershaw storm but its a great blade aswell. i dont really carry that anymore because my leatherman wave has a large enough blade on it that i dont need a folding knife. plus im in canada so the blade on its own could get confiscated but they cannt confiscate a multi tool because its like taking a screw driver because its too pointy

You should take a look at ecosknives.com, they make these custom kiridashis, which are a traditional japanese carpenters knife, and they are the cheapest (durable) custom knives you will ever find. I got mine for $40 like new, with a kydex sheath.

m,ine is tight as hell and ive tried playing around and flipping it although ive never tried a balisong. it is also pretty heavy. if you try running with it in shorts with an elastic wasteband they will most likely fall down lol. it kinda pisses me off that balisongs are illegal in canada. maybe i can get a trainer for cheap

Trainers are definately legal in Canada, and Im pretty sure they will ship there, but if not and/or if you want a real knife, go to knifezilla. Their prices and customer service are crappy, but they will ship anywhere in North America, no questions asked.
