These are blemished units our second generation Squiddys. Our new second generation Squiddys have a revised zen pin design which offers much higher durability.
Blemished product sales are final (no returns accepted) but they do qualify for warranty (mechanical defects only). Any damages incurred by use is not covered by warranty. Replacement parts are available for purchase. Blemished models arrive in blemished boxes and may come with the following, but not limited to:
The Squiddy has a pretty adorable looking face. If you want to flip on the bus on the way to school or while you're walking through down town, you probably don't want to disturb others or potentially be seen as a threat. The plastic look and feel also makes them great for kids. Heavy steel/zinc balisongs usually don't work well for children and even regular adults who can easily bruise their hands on.
On a similar note to public friendliness, the Squiddy is approved by the TSA. You can fly with it in your carry on baggage and flip with it in the airport and even while you're on the airplane (not recommended).
