Re: What is the role of the butterfly knife in self defense?
Dear CDR Glock,
Butterfly knives are great, lots of fun and definitely impressive in the right hands. However as a weapon, there are much better deployment methods. I trained for several years in their use at the original Filipino Kali Academy in Torrance with Dan Inosanto and Richard Bustillo in the 1970's.
I may make some - sometime.
