There are two main theories when it comes to the history of Balisongs, the most popular is that the Balisong originated in the Phillipines around 800 AD. This butterfly blade was said to be one of the most ancient weapons used in the Filipino Martial Art of Kali, which even today is considered one of the deadliest fighting systems in the world. It was said to have taken its name form the town of Bali-Sung in the Batangas region of the Phillipines. This region is known, even to this day for solely producing the knife. The knife was then said to have been brought to the US in the 1900s, by immigrant Filipino farm labourers and returning GIs who brought them back as war souvenirs. In the 50s it became illegal to manufacture them in the US, due to negative use by motorcycle gangs and criminal delinquents.
