Product Story

Nabalis designs the Vulp in collaboration with Will Hirsch.

Its stylings and designs are similar to many classic balisongs, but the design gives the Vulp a style of its own.

The geometric patterns on the handles are inspired by Will's favorite feature, “Fox Logo”, and provide good grip in the necessary areas while flipping.

Bowie style suits Will’s taste and is used for the blade of Vulp trainer.

Even more to the point, some impressive jimpings on the bottom of the handles are added to create extra grip in this area, so as to help with “Ladders” learning.

In fact, many design details are intentional, targeting groups of flippers who are longing for getting into the hobby.

The balance is adjusted so that “Chaplins” is easier to successfully do and maintain, and the handles are spaced apart to prevent accidental pinching while

The ultimate purpose of the Vulp balisong/ butterfly knife trainer is to be one of the best entry-level options on the market, making it easier for anyone to learn and get into this fantastic hobby.

A message from Will Hirsch

I worked very hard to create this trainer with all of the design features I would have wanted when learning. Lots of testing was done by me, my friends, or just random balisong community members. I took as much feedback as I could and I am honestly very proud of the final version. I hope you enjoy it too!

I love it

100% recommend, great product, great feeling, no problems at all after after heavy use

Tex Howard

I upgraded from my $10 Amazon Balisong to the Vulp and it is the best thing. It is bigger and sturdier and flips amazingly. I had a problem where one of the screws kept coming out but I found a video about threadlocker so I fixed it and it works perfectly

Excellent Product

Been using nonstop since purchase. 10/10 would recommend to any beginner or enjoyer of balisongs!

The Vulp Butterfly Knife Balisong Trainer - The first trainer of Nabalis x Will Hirsch


The product shown above is a trainer, NOT a real knife. The "blade" in the pictures is dull and only meant to simulate the weight and feel of a real blade. These trainers are NOT weapons and are intended for recreational and educational purposes only.
