Man Demonstrating His Very Impressive Butterfly Knife Tricks

January 13, 2017


This is a video of Curtis Crowe (aka Eight Fingers, just kidding he's still got them all I think) demonstrating his skills with a butterfly knife (aka balisong). He's got some pretty impressive moves, and could probably make a decent living by traveling back in time to the 80's and 90's and being a stuntman in movies that involve doing a bunch of tricks before a knife fight. In addition to all the other opportunities for bleeding, he also does a bunch of tosses and catches with the knife. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Well, hovering on the edge of my seat the whole time. "So you're in a public bathroom stall." I'm not getting butt spiders again.

Hit the jump for the video while I watch it in slow motion and try to spot where they missed Photoshopping the blood out.

Thanks to Jay, who was really hoping this guy was going to sword-swallow the knife as part of his routine.

    In the state of Pennsylvania carrying a gravity knife, switchblade or balisong is illegal. What I don't understand (about any weapon ban in general) is why. Banning things in my opinion is usually a slippery slope at best. Why is thing X banned when thing Y can do what thing X does and more effectively.

    Say... for example, I can carry a broadsword on my back in public but if I were to get caught with a 2 inch switchblade in my pocket I'd face criminal charges (It's not illegal to own just illegal to carry).

    Or... If I have a firearm permit I could legally carry a suppressed automatic pistol (provided I paid for the tax stamps and the dimensions don't make it technically a long gun).

    Because it's all "Security Theater". People want to have their feelsie-feels feel better, so the gov't bans random stupid things. Pretty sure if I was a murderous sociopath, I could do a lot of damage with scissors or sharpened pencils at school, yet wearing a wallet chain was too dangerous, since it could potentially be used as a weapon.

    (Yes a wallet chain, it was the '90's, don't judge me)

    When I was in high school a friend of mine got a mild scolding for using a pocket knife to sharpen his pencil. A classmate got his locker torn apart and they did an extremely detailed search because he got caught with a bic lighter.

    You can't light a cigarette with a knife.
