.Item Description: This pendant is actually a miniature replica of a Balisong aka Butterfly Knife from the Philippines. It fully articulates but is not sharp. Available in sterling silver & brass or white & yellow gold.
According to oral history, the balisong originated in the Philippines around 800 A.D., although some claim it was an adaptation of the French measuring tool called pied du roi. In the Philippines it was commonly used for self-defence as well as a utility knife.
