The Balisong Knife in Movies: Sharky's Machine (1981)

Here's another entry in my "The Balisong Knife in Movies" series. Call me a Martial Arts Geek, I'm looking to make Animated GIF's of any movie or TV show that featured Balisong usage.

Today's entry is from the 1981 Burt Reynolds who starred and directed Sharky's Machine. The living legend Guro Dan Inosanto wields the Balisong and this entry coincides with his 77th birthday!

The first animated GIF shows 2 openings and the other 2 GIF's are those openings depicted individually. Please forgive the pixelation, I've not figured out how to decrease that effect on near black backgrounds such as this.

Please know that there were 2-3 more flips that was sandwiched between the above 2, but they were not that clear and didn't look that good as a GIF.

In case you missed the previous entries in this Balisong Knife in Movies series:

Forthcoming (in no order):

  • Kick-Ass (2010)
  • The Year of the Dragon (1985)
  • Streets of Fire (1984)
  • Red Dawn (1984)
  • The Big Brawl (1980)
  • Full Alert (1992)

If you know of any movies and/or TV shows which featured the usage of the Balisong knife, please leave a comment. Thank you in advance!
