Balisong Pins

Post by glowingthehero » Wed May 10, 2017 8:07 pm

So I dropped my trainer today while flipping it and a pin fell out and got lost. Does anyone know if it's possible to switch press fit pins for screws and if so how much that would cost. It isn't a very expensive trainer being only $10 on amazon but it is the only trainer i currently own. (a link to the trainer) https://www.amazon.com/Amarey-Butterfly ... s=balisong

It's possible but for a $10 trainer it may not be cost effective. See if you can find what you need here.

Yeah if I find pins but they are over the price of the knife itself I'll just pick up a bear and sons trainer. Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the welcome. A funny thing happened a couple days after I posted this, The other pin snapped inside the trainer and the OTHER handle fell off. This was the opposite of what I thought was going to happen the handle I was worried about is still on strong.
