Our low price butterfly knife makes for a great practice knife. It has black aluminum handles which are skeletonized for weight reduction. It also has a very nice stainless steel blade with a high gloss finish. Here is a tip for the new user: Coat your blade edge with electrical tape and you are much less likely to cut yourself as you go through your training routine. After you have your swings down, take the tape off and amaze your friends. This is not a heavy duty butterfly knife--it can be broken with heavy use. Blade Length: 3.5" Overall Length: 9"
