This Blade HQ Exclusive Balisong Trainer model is outfitted with blue G-10 scales, each with stylistic holes, and a satin finished trainer blade.
The Boker Plus Balisong Trainer offers a dull training blade for practicing the more difficult bali tricks. Stainless steel liners provide nice weight and the red G-10 improves grip while adding a dramatic style. Further your flipping skills while saving money on band-aids with the Boker Balisong Trainer.
I purchased my red boker trainer about a year ago. Love that one. Was curious if this was the same thing, just blue (which I like, so why is this one cheaper?) Yup, it's the same. Which is awesome! Ok, one small difference is the blade, which is nicer! It has rounded edges vs my original red, which has flatter, but still slightly rounded. Otherwise, everything else appears to be identical. This is an amazing trainer. Do eet!
I almost didn't buy this because of some the reviews I seen online. They said it was great for the price but had some issues with it. I'm glad I did because it seems they fixed the rounded blade and the sharp G10. If you were thinking about buying this but seen a bad review. I would say ignore it because these have been fixed since they first released. Probably the best trainer on the market for the price. Unbelievable value.
This is a great trainer that I think punches above it’s weight class. Nice weight and balance. Very smooth flipping. No tap no play out of the box. And only a little play after lots of flipping, which I plan to address with some loctite. BladeHQ is awesome to - shipped it within 24 hours and I got it before the weekend as desired.
Constructed as well or better than trainers costing 4 times as much. Smooth action. Well balanced. Very pleased with purchase.
