The Squiddy-U is the perfect companion for every occasion. Its precision CNC machined acetal frame creates a smooth flipping experience that's gratifying for all flippers. Expect a durable, comfortable, and quiet flipping experience with the Squiddy-U.


The Squiddy-U is a new color variant of the Squiddy-B. Just like the Squiddy-B, the Squiddy-U offers the same noise-reducing O-Ring System but with striking blue colored handles and O-ring! 

Both the Squiddy-B and Squiddy-U are made from Acetal. Acetal is an engineering thermoplastic used in precision parts requiring high stiffness, low friction, and excellent dimensional stability making it great for a balisong trainer. This trainer is safe, legal everywhere (including airplanes), and perfect for young folks whose parents don't want them shredding their new sofa with a sharp butterfly knife. 

The Squiddy-U utilizes the same hardware as our other premium models—phosphorous bronze washers and steel zen pin construction create a smooth flipping action you've come to expect from Squid Industries. Take your flipping skills up a notch with the Squiddy-U butterfly trainer!

Manufactured and assembled in the USA



The Squiddy-U is made of plastic, has no sharp edges, and is legal everywhere!


The Squiddy-U is designed with a friendly, harmless-looking face. The non-threatening face makes it a perfect EDC flipper. The rounded look and feel also make them great for kids.


On a similar note to public friendliness, the Squiddy balisong trainer is TSA safe. You can fly with it in your carry on baggage and flip it at the airport.
