The Butterfly Key is an homage to the original fidget spinner: the butterfly knife. Of course, butterfly knives are illegal in most places for being simply too badass. If you are lucky enough to have one, you know how much fun they can be to flip open and close over and over again. I remember spending hours as a kid sneaking into my parent’s room, opening my dad’s drawer and secretly mastering the technique of artfully wielding a butterfly knife. I do wish I had a Butterfly Key back then, I would not have gotten in trouble for accidentally cutting myself.
Stylistically, the Butterfly Key is indistinguishable from a Balisong Butterfly Knife when the latch is closed, but it is a bit smaller to fit neatly in your pocket. The handles have been crafted from aluminum and have a beautiful, reflective finish that comes in multiple colors. The aluminum ensures that the key is lightweight, extremely strong, durable, scratch resistant, and rust resistant.
When closed, the Butterfly key is 13mm in diameter, 70mm in length, and around 125mm in an open position, depending on the length of your key. Any type of ‘blank’ key for houses, cars, motorcycles, locks, will fit in the Butterfly Key. If you’re having trouble getting a key to fit, simply take it to a locksmith and have a blank made. The latch has a keychain attachment hole so you don’t have to worry about carrying it separately from the rest of your keys.
The Butterfly Key is the perfect gift for any butterfly knife enthusiast or anyone that wants to perform cool tricks with their keys. You don’t even have to run the risk of cutting yourself!
