The Squid Industries Second Generation Mako Bottle Opener released in June 2019 adds performance and utility to the original design. By popular demand, we've redesigned the shark mouth to now function as a bottle opener. If you're looking for a competitive flipper that has a public friendly vibe, then the second generation Mako is the trainer for you.
Our Inked Series Mako Bottle Opener is a variant of our regular Mako Bottle Opener trainers. The Inked models come assembled with our new Graphite Black Cerakote blades along with matching black oxide coated hardware.
What is Cerakote? Cerakote is a Polymer-Ceramic Composite coating that can be applied to metals, plastics, polymers and wood. The unique formulation used for Cerakote ceramic coating enhances a number of physical performance properties including abrasion/wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength, and hardness.
