The Balisong Knife in Movies: TNT Jackson (1974) GIF Set 1

Today's entry in my Butterfly Knife (aka Balisong Knife) animated GIF project features Jeanne Bell (aka Jean Bell) in the 1974 "Blaxplotation" TNT Jackson. Bell plays Diana "TNT" Jackson looking for her missing brother.

To date in my Balisong GIF series, this is one of the earliest appearances of the Butterfly Knife in a movie (and what a big pair at that as you will see!) However, on my list of movies with Balisong appearances, this movie is not the earliest. With that said, I may not be able to locate the earliest appearances though so for now, this is the earliest movie I could find.

The GIFs from TNT Jackson are broken up in to 2 posts for quicker page loads. Here are the first 7. Check below for the link to the 2nd GIF Set.


NOTEMy deepest gratitude to KungFuMagazine Forum member "mickey" for giving me the heads-up on the Balisong in this movie!

Here's the full scene!

If you like the Balisong knife, please check out the link below for details of a documentary project on the Balisong which needs help with funding to finish:

For the record, I've already pledged money. I would like to see this project come to fruition!

There are only 8 days left, only $2,355 pledged from 35 backers and the goal is $35,000.

Please help if you can financially, if not, please share that post to spread the word!

Thank you in advance!
