Thumb rollover 2

Here is another rollover move for those wanting to "push their luck". Go slow with this one. It's very easy to end up grabbing the blade and getting a major cut. The Ring finger is at the most risk. Trust me!

 step 1

 step 2

 step 5
5. Roll (don't throw) the handles over.

 step 6

 step 7

 step 8
8. As the safe handle comes around, close your fingers a little to stop it.

 step 10

Make sure to keep the connection between the Thumb and Balisong as the handles roll over. You don't want this move to be a throw.
