Not for serious flipping
Steven K.
I would like to say one thing before this review, it is not for serious flipping. This is perfectly ok though, as its purpose is to be a toy you can use whenever you cant have a real bali (ex. school). It is perfect as just being something fun to play with. My only complaint is that my ink cartridge does not stay in properly and will fly across the room if not constantly placed back in.

It's fun, but is a little to lightweight. Broke pretty easy. But was fun while it lasted.
Great but...
Bryan E.
I really loved this little toy. It was great fun, especially when I was bored or had a knack for flipping but was in class. My friends really liked it too and it ended up inspiring some friends to buy a balisong. My only problem was it broke a couple weeks after purchase(due to misuse). I also have to complain about the weight, it is far too light for many tricks such as rollovers. In the end I would still highly recommend this product.
It's a fun toy.
Brett K.
Like everyone says, its light. Its still fun to play with, and has a good pen. Be very careful about where you use it. I dropped mine and a handle snapped off. I doubt bladehq can do anything about it. Just be careful with how and where you choose to use it. Don't end up like me. As broken as the pen I had to throw away.
Fun when nothings around

Great thing to flip when nothing else is arround, thw handles are different then the USA version and make it harder to fan but stilll good.
Awesome to fidget
Joseph M.
This is much better than your average fidget spinner. Itís really fun to flip it around like a real balisong.
Itís fun
John O.
I got as a Christmas gift when I was younger. Itís a fun pen to play with but doesnít make real sense to use as an actual pen
Great introduction to butterfly flippers
Logan b.
Great product only complaint is materials itís great to practice with and comes with a instructions manual on how to do different things with it over all itís a great product
Mildly disappointing
Mitchell E.
-Good for places you can't have a balisong.
-Much less memes than a fidget spinner.
-Kinda usable as a pen.
-Dealing with BladeHQ was a pleasure as always.

-Annoying to try and actually use as a pen, and not a good pen.
-Insanely light and tiny, making it impossible to flip properly.
-Cheaply made. (fell apart and I had to reassemble)
-Too expensive for what it is.
Alot of fun!

I kept seeing these and thinking "wow that's stupid". Well a couple months later and I've been starting to get into balisongs and learning how to flip. Figured any practice I get helps. So I have added this guy to my EDC. It's alot of fun to play with. But... If you want this help improve your Bali skills then don't hold your breath. As fun as it is the weight is horribly different than any of the bali's u have ever flipped and the handle of the pen has a very awkward shape.

I have big hands and it's pretty hard to flip this like a butterfly knife handle is just to short. This pen is also pretty flimsy, as soon as you get it in hand you feel like it's going to just fall apart. But overall I've dropped this thing a ton of time and it's still going strong. I have heard the other color pens are made in USA and have much better weights. If that's the case then u would definitely get one of those instead of this one. But at the end of day this thing may not be a awesome training tool, but you still can get the concept of some tricks and for the price it's a whole lot of fun. Get it if your looking!!!!
Love it!

I bring this to school with me so whenever I really wanna flip I can, now I don't do it too often but it's nice to have. I even sometimes find myself flipping it when on my computer. The pen is super light though, but it's a pen so what do you suspect. Handles are awkward at first but you adjust. If you are buying a Balisong or knife got some extra cash or just bumping your price to get free shipping, I would pick it up.
