step 1

step 5

6. One rotation should be enough.

step 7

step 8

step 9
9. Catch in the Forward grip, open position.

It might take awhile to get the feel of this technique. The flip especially has to be just right, too much power on the flip and you won't get the handle separation in the air, not enough and the Bali will come blade down into your palm.

Practice this one over a bed and let the Balisong drop while you watch for the right rotation.
