Great Practice Balisong!
JONAH M. on Aug 18, 2020

I am new to balisong/butterfly knives and this was a great starter. Its well worth the price and has a perfect weight. My only concern is that the pins holding the blade to the handles become worn down after some use, giving the handles more wiggle room which sometimes gets in the way. The safe pin also becomes loose and can get in the way of flipping but i took it off anyways. Overall great knife for beginners!

Good little trainer for the price
Jacob H. on Mar 24, 2022

So this trainer is extremely good for the price. When I got it had a little tap and a little play one bummer is that the screws are not adjustable. One thing I do want to add is that I’m not sure it’s just mine but where the sharp edge would be it’s kind of ruff and not as pretty as the spine of the knife. The last thing I want to say is the latch does Some times get in the way and I wish that removing the latch would be easier. If you're looking to not break the bank and looking for a good beginner butterfly knife then I would 100 percent recommend this 10/10!

Great balisong to start out with!
Josh E. on Jul 11, 2019

I love this knife it is great! It flips supper nice and it is pretty easy to learn. I would really recommend this knife to anyone starting balisong.

very nice trainer mainly
lowry p. on Jun 17, 2018

I got this trainer around january and it was a great trainer till the brad broke on the safe handle. Eventually the brad on the bite handle did the same. Overall nice knife

Good starting out trainer
Robert C. on Oct 24, 2018

I like this trainer. It has its use. It's inexpensive enough and it works well. As a first time trainer, it will suit you well as low cost option. If you stick with flipping you'll quickly outgrow it and end up a better feeling trainer.

Great trainer...Mostly
Ryan P. on Jun 7, 2015

I got this trainer a while back and have to say that it has been very good for me who is just starting to get into balisongs. The one problem, which is a fairly major one, is that after a few months of use, one of the handles has completely snapped off. However, I can't be too upset because I did only pay $30 for it and it held up very well for the price. If it was a benchmade trainer I would say otherwise, but for this knife I would recommend it for anyone who is just starting out. However, if you want a good trainer, I'd say the extra cash is worth it for a benchmade trainer or even a live blade. In the knife world you generally do get what you pay for.

bad tolerances
Liam G. on Oct 12, 2022

It was good for the first few weeks for the basic stuff as I was learning to flip but once I started getting into more complex tricks the tolerances got loose to the point where I do not think I will ever buy from this brand again.

Maybe for someone who's never touched a knife before
Mason O. on Sep 23, 2021

While the 114tr is cheap and it is smooth(ish), it's extremely heavy, very loud, sounds bad, and has handle slap out of the box. The blade play is absolutely unacceptable for anything over $10 (seriously, there is so much play that the latch can close fully on the OUTSIDE of the handle), the latch sucks, and the blade, while not sharpened, has sharp 90 degree edges and has pinched me many times. Upon closer inspection, I realized that the play is due to the fact that there is literally nothing on the pivots. No bearings, no bushings, no washers. Nothing. Just some elbow grease and tolerances about a full millimeter too lose with no tuning since it is pinned. I would just go with a Squiddy if I were you... Or literally anything else.

Not even worth getting on sale
KIERAN G. on Sep 7, 2022

I'm actually surprised by the good reviews on this. I'm new to balisongs but not knives and this has to be one of the cheapest made blades I've ever held. Rattly right from the box and only gotten worse with just 4 days of use. The handle has significant indents from where the center pin hits. The latch is constantly getting in the way, I had to modify it to keep it out of the way. Warning to anyone trying to get there first, look elsewhere...

Holy Hot Garbage
Jason W. on Sep 20, 2022

I would have expected better from HQ. If I had gotten this knife at a gas station, it would have made sense. Not from Blade HQ! This was a gift for someone who wanted to get into Balisongs. I thought something made in the US would be better. This was a huge disappointment. There is no way to adjust this or tighten it. Ther tang pin that's under the blade smacks into the handles while you are flipping it. You can tell it will wear off the PC in a short time. The latch flops around as well Even how it was packaged was subpar at best. Compared to a knife half the price on Amazon, I would just have expected better from HQ and something Made in the USA. I would expect this to be a $10-15 tops knife. I would think twice before buy from this knife maker.
