Here are some videos I made to show some of my freestyle balisong manipulations.   If you give these moves a try I would strongly recommend that you tape the blade first to get a feel for what you are doing.  If anyone is interested, I used a Sony model dcr-trv730 digital camcorder for both the modification pictures and the video.  So far I have only used the memory card to capture video footage, which makes things easy but also limits me to 15 seconds or less of continuous footage per clip.  When I finally end up getting a firewire card I can make the videos longer and higher quality.
