Batangas Balisong Butterfly Knife
Its life’s story may be considered many… and arguments online somehow dates back to antiquity.
And if we talk about the terms etymology… wikipedia states, the meaning is not clear entirely.
A popular belief is that it’s derived from the Tagalog words “baling” and “sungay“.
And in the town famed for crafting these knives, Taal, Batangas, the term also happens to be the name of one of its barangay’s.
Wikipedia says the Tagalog term balisong means “broken or folding horn” literally, as they were made from the carved horns of a carabao or stag originally.
Still much debate exist to date about its back story which many says its roots deserves more study.
And if its true history… for some… hazy and sketchy, for some… is still a mystery, and for some… it’s end of story.
One thing is clear, whether we get ourselves a “Batangasmade” or a “Benchmade”
I believe we can all find some time to set aside the arguments and start flippin’ for art and our amusement.
These knives are no playthings… there are certain regulations on its carrying.
Always start slow when you’re still learning… and always exercise caution when practicing.
And if you can start with a balisong trainer… then that will definitely be much better.

The Belt Buckle Knife in review (item# DV-01) was designed by Dan Valois and made by Master Cutlery, Inc. (Largest variety in the knife industry), the largest knife manufacturer in the USA.
This item features a concealed, fast access belt buckle knife that can be quite handy in certain situations.
The buckle knife is affixed to the upper part of the plastic sheath by a double pronged clip found behind the buckle’s pakkawood curb handle at the end of the knife’s tang.
The hidden sheath located behind the nylon belt strap on one end of the belt keeps the blade from being seen.
The sheath (cover) affixed to one end of the belt has a single metal clip that has one end folded, attaching it to the sheath, while the other end that goes through the sheath, forms a hook (mordant) on the other side.
The hook is the part which enters the hole that is found on an adjustable metal piece on the other end of the strap, to fit different waist sizes and buckle up the belt.
Now who would ever think that this belt hides such a tool that can prove useful in Self defense if the need arises.
This dual-purpose belt is so cool as it not only serves to support outer garments and at the same time may provide the wearer some protection where needed, but it is also apparently fashionable and impressive.
Here are things that you need to look out for if you happen to have this kind of Belt Knife:
1. When buckling, while trying to tighten the belt one should be careful and make sure to get a good hold of the buckle knife’s handle because you may unexpectedly pull it out, drop it and impale your foot in the process…
2. It can be considered as a “concealed weapon” and may get you into trouble…
“In Buckle-logy terms or Belt-ly speaking”
This sheath buckle is like of the Plate-style buckle types that were common on western military belts in the mid-19th century [wikipedia(dot)com].
The blade’s sheath acts as the “chape” and in a sense, serves as the real buckle itself.
The “buckle knife and its curb handle” somehow acts as a “decoration” to make this item appear stylish.
Thanks for dropping by!

Bakbakan sa Iligan City 2
Airsoft Tournament Snapshots
September 6-7, 2014
Airsoft players enjoy such tournament games… it’s not only a time to apply what a team has practiced over and over again but it is a time where one teams unity, camaraderie, comradeship, strategy and game plan will come into play…
And going against other teams in this kind of battle can never be so exciting… it’s so much fun!
And Photojournalist’s love it too…
Compliments to our photographer who… despite operating behind the Mesh, able to take snapshots and taking 3 hits… on the forehead, leg & chest from stray bb’s, with only a camera’s strap for body armor, and a cam’s lens as eye protection… really had fun becoming part of this Bakbakan sa Iligan City 2 – Airsoft Tournament’s action.
