Spyderco SmallFly Butterfly Trainer
Spyderco’s new SmallFly butterfly knives are great, lightweight flippers. Lots of fun. If you don’t know how to use them, however, it can be a little intimidating. Try out their new training model and you can flip all day with no danger of cutting yourself. We have other butterfly trainers as well, but this one is really well made and a lot of fun.
Here is Spyderco‘s information on this product:
Weaves conventional Balisong elements with innovative features expected from Spyderco. Elongated handles modify the Fly’s center of balance over traditional Balisong knives. The added handle length creates a unique feeling of fluid and controlled equilibrium when swinging and manipulating. 4-way positioned tip-up clip. Spring loaded locking latch attached to either handle for left or right hand use. Squeezing the closed handles together releases the locking lever latching the blade closed.
