A butterfly knife is one of the most unique pocket knife styles a person can own. The balisong has a long history that some have claimed goes back as far as 800 AD. These knives rose to prominence in the Philippine islands and quickly spread throughout the globe. Today butterfly knives and butterfly flipping have become an art form unto themselves. Check out our Learn Knives section for some of the Best Butterfly Knives or learn more about the Kershaw Lucha in the video below, our best-selling balisong knife of the last year.
If you are just starting out in the butterfly knife world your first purchase should be some band-aids, or a solid butterfly knife trainer. These knives have dull blades so you can practice all of your favorite balisong tricks without the risk of losing a digit. If you need help getting started be sure to check out our Best Butterfly Knife Trainers article or learn some cool beginner butterfly tricks in the video below.
Butterfly knives are a class of knives that will be completely legal in one area of the country and outlawed in another area. Like automatic knives, butterfly knives have gotten a bad rap in the past for being more dangerous than regular pocket knives. Even though balisongs are mostly used for flipping today, be sure to check your local laws to see if you can own one.

He did not compete on Total Drama Action, but was a member of the Total Drama Action Aftermath peanut gallery. He also returned as a contestant for Total Drama World Tour as a member of Team Amazon. He was seen with the other original contestants on a yacht in the first episode of Total Drama: Revenge of the Island.
In Paintball Deer Hunter, Cody is the only one out of his team that is excited to be a deer, stating that he is small but quick. He gets separated from the other deer early on. Sometime later, he meets Beth and talks about her alliance with Heather. As Beth and Heather argue, Cody takes the bag of chips that Beth brought for Heather and leaves. Unknown to him, the bag has a hole on it, causing chips to fall out and attract the attention of a bear. The bear ends up attacking him and mauls him, leaving him severely injured, requiring a full-body cast and a wheelchair. To his surprise, he is voted off despite the loss not being his fault. This is because Leshawna and Owen believe his injuries made him a liability to the team. Due to being handicapped, Beth offers to wheel him to the Dock of Shame. Before bidding him farewell, she gives him a kiss on the cheek and shows him her Tiki idol that she picked up on Boney Island. Cody tries to warn her that the idol is bad luck, but is muffled by the bandage over his mouth. His wheelchair then wheels over the dock and falls into the lake.
By Haute Camp-ture, Cody has fully recovered from his injuries and attempts to get a tan, believing it will make him more popular with the ladies. However, he ends up being sunburned all over his body. When the ex-contestants decide who they are supporting in the finale, Cody chooses Gwen. In The Very Last Episode, Really!, Cody is among those who remain at Gwen's side, even after Owen announces his plan to hold a party if he wins.
Cody returns for Total Drama World Tour with hopes that he can try to win over Gwen, especially now that she and Trent had broken up, but he is also put on the receiving end of an attraction by his biggest fan, Sierra. Before they even leave the airport, Sierra is shown to know what his full name and his birthday were, even though this information had never been revealed on the show. While he generally tries to avoid Sierra for much of the season, the two are often paired up for the challenges throughout the season. This is the case during the first challenge, but the two would end up being placed on different teams. However, it wouldn't be long until Sierra transfers over to Team Amazon to be on the same team as Cody.
As Sierra falls back into her old habits and Cody continues to show his usual response towards it whenever the two are paired up together or alone in the next few episodes, he still shows his attraction to Gwen in a somewhat similar manner to Sierra, although it isn't quite to the extent of Sierra. While he does things such as telling Tyler to take a picture of him and Gwen together while the latter was asleep, he also manages to win the tiebreaker challenge in Greece's Pieces despite the protests of Courtney and Sierra to throw the challenge so then they could vote off Gwen that night. Even though he doesn't do anything to stop Courtney's hatred towards Gwen, he is the only one that seems to support her in The EX-Files, such as not saying anything in Boyfriend Kisser and sacrificing his candy in order to help them get through the minefield and promising her that he would vote off Courtney (rather than Sierra) in the scenario that they lose.
These are quotes that are either repeated in more than one mission or mandatory reactions to gameplay performance. Fox makes a deathly scream when no teammates are active to react to his death, such as during Andross's battles. ROB will only speak when the player has pressed the right C button, so his quote may go unsaid if allowed. If any Ninjin Missiles explode at Area 6, wingmates will react in a painful scream, depending on who is present on the field.
SRU's Strategic Plan: Trend Five recognizes that the world is reaching a point of diminishing returns regarding resource utilization, and includes specific goals and action steps we plan to take in order to prepare our students with the skills needed to excel in such a world.
*Single stream (also known as "fully commingled" or "single-sort") recycling refers to a system in which all recyclables are mixed in a collection truck, instead of being sorted by the resident into separate commodities. In single stream, both the collection and processing systems are designed to handle this fully commingled mixture of recyclables, with materials being separated for reuse at a materials recovery facility. The goal of single stream recycling is increased participation in the recycling process (resulting in higher rates of recycling and lower quantities of waste landfilled).
In addition to a broad variety of bird and butterfly species, the Audubon Wildlife Sanctuaries at SRU are home to many wild animals including the White-Tailed Deer, Wild Turkey, Striped Skunk, both Red and Gray Squirrels, Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake, Gray Catbird, the American Woodcock, as well as many other species. The Audubon Sanctuaries on campus (noted above) also include sensitive wetlands areas, most prominently in the Branchton Road sanctuary area.
