The History of Butterfly Knives and How the ButterflyKey Brings a Modern Twist

Butterfly knives, also known as balisongs, have a long and storied history dating back hundreds of years. Originally used as a utility tool in the Philippines, these folding knives with two handles that rotate around the tang, or blade, became popular in the United States in the 1950s and 60s. Butterfly knives gained a reputation for being both functional and fun to play with, and were often used to perform tricks and flips. However, their association with crime and violence also led to them being banned in many countries.

In recent years, the popularity of butterfly knives has resurfaced, with people enjoying them as a collectible or recreational item. The ButterflyKey takes inspiration from the iconic butterfly knife design and brings a modern twist by replacing the blade with a key. This innovative product combines the playability and style of a butterfly knife with the practicality of a key, making it a unique and convenient everyday carry item.
