Lots of balisongs ship with very dull blades to allow safer practice. True practice models with blanks instead of blades are also available for no chance of serious injury.

I'd at least look for one with screws instead of pins so you can adjust the tightness. This is what I have and its alright, just make sure to get some torx screwdrivers if you don't have any already.

You can get trainer ones that aren't pointy at all if you want to show other people :D
