Why a training knife?
If the balisong knife can injure, the training knife is non-lethal. Improper handling of the blade will not injure the knife wealder, thus, its name. Its use then is only intended to accompany a beginner in the handling of a real butterfly knife later on. As far as design is concerned, a training knife is of course characterized by a rounded blade. And like a balisong, it also has two removable handles. Once closed, these handles give the knife a look similar to a pocket model.
Colored training balisong for originality

Stainless steel training balisong for durability
The blade of a training knife is often made of copper. However, models with a stainless steel blade are more resistant to wear and rust. Often embellished with a copper handle and a titanium coating, these models also feature an incomparable artistic look.
Blunt balisong for elegance
These types of training knives are equipped with a blunt blade with a claw design. By choosing these models, you will have a knife that is easy to handle, yet as stylish as neck knives.
How to maintain a training knife?
As the training knife is blunt, we will skip the sharpening. The case though is an important element to consider. Although this accessory is mainly dedicated to protect your body from the blade, it can just as well be used to preserve the aesthetic aspect of the knife. To avoid scratching the handle and the blade, you will have to choose a case made of a soft material. Copper as well as suede will be perfect. Also remember not to put your knife in contact with water. If it is the case, wipe it properly before putting it back in its case. The same applies if your hands have been sweaty while handling it.
