Carpenter Tools

Quality Carpenter Tools Will Help You Create Masterpieces

In this video, I will show you how to make a wooden butterfly knife, or Balisong. Since these wooden knives have now real blade, they are excellent trainer knives, and are great for beginners. Project difficulty: 4/10 (1=Easy and quick, 10=Very advanced and difficult. May take a while.) *Warning: This project uses power tools and other sharp objects. Follow proper safety requirements and most of all, use common sense. Also, although the blade is not sharp and cannot cut you, it can still be very pointy. Treat it like a real blade.* (Note: I sped up the video by 3% to fit the timeframe, but it is very unnoticeable. Also, the mic that I used was bad quality, so sorry for the bad audio.) Thanks for watching! :)
Video Rating: 4 / 5

    You are very good but I was looking online and a trainer one is only like 13 bucks which for me is cheaper then making one and I think that the metal trainer is better than a wood one but still my parents are a lot more hesitant about the metal trainer than me making one. But I dont have the power tools. oh well keep up the good work. Next time use a better mic though it wasnt that bad but some parts it got really grainy and hurt my ears

    @greentimz they are not actual knives. its only wood and nails. of course its legal to carry. dont take it to school or places like that because some people are stupid and dont know the difference

  10. bowen ortiz says:

    you dont even have to buy a trainer one. you can by a real one for around the same price as a trainer, then put electrical tape (or any duck tape) around the sharp edge of the blade and use it with the tape untell you get good.

    No, some people actually have a genuine interest in knives.

    Guys, stop all of the hate comments. This kid wanted something, and made it himself. His video is very easy to follow, and I just made a balisong following his video, and it works great. Kids today all want to play video games and listen to Justin Bieber, but this kid is building and is taking the time to have fun. He will go a lot further in life than all of the basement dwelling kids that are all to common now-a-days. So grow up, because he’s going a lot further in life than most of you are.
