hmmm... that's a weird looking Benchmade in the movie. I own a balisong, and even though it's not a benchmade, it doesn't have the holes filled in. I wonder why the prop in the movie is like that. Did the propmaster screw up and not have a benchmade handy? Did Chloe Moretz' parents object to her holding a real knife? lol, yea right. Either way i'd like to know what's up with the movie knife. Maybe they lost the real knife and had to go with a stunt knife as a last resort.
on a side note, it's hella fun flipping a balisong like hit-girl does. not so much when the blade inevitably bites you.

Wow, Im surprised theres not more info on these boards about this prop already. From what I hear people liked this movie a lot and everyone seems to have liked Hit-Girl especially. I figured her balisongs would be really popular.

I was surprised when watching the making of to see that she really knows how to flip those things!

The Model 43 has a bowie style blade but the clip is longer. That looks like they modified the 42's tip though.
It has the rounded spring lock like the newer 42's.
I just saw that movie tonight. Man, the fight scenes were great!

P.S. the newer 42's have Torx screws. In 2 of the pics above it looks like this knife has them also.

I used to sell these things a lot back in the day. The handle does look like it is a Benchmade Balisong with the holes filled in. As for the blade the first thing I noticed about it when I saw the movie is that I've never seen Benchmade do that type of file work on the blade or on the spine of the blade. Also I don't remember them doing a mirror polished blade on them.
