Manufactured and assembled in the USA

Squidtrainer V3.5

The Squidtrainer was the first balisong trainer to be produced by Squid Industries. The Squidtrainer is known to feel as smooth as a balisong with bushings, despite being bushingless, due to its meticulous machining process. Since its inception in 2015, we’ve integrated feedback from flippers all around the world each year to make it the best flipper in its class. 

The Squidtrainer V3.5 has undergone significant change since the first production run in 2016. It features the following:

  • Integral channel handle design machined from 6061 T6511 aluminum alloy
  • Machined handle texture pattern and bead blast finish for better grip
  • Rounded handles and blade spine for enhanced comfort and durability
  • Precision ground heat treated 410 stainless blade for maximum smoothness, minimal handle play, and zero blade rub
  • Press-fit stainless steel rods installed into the ends of each handle for better feel and momentum

      The Inked Series Squidtrainer V3.5 features a DLC coated blade. DLC, or Diamond-Like Carbon, is an extremely hard coating used to reduce friction, wear, fretting, galling, and corrosion. Not only is it tough, but it's also incredibly thin and comes in at under 2 microns in thickness.

      Nautilus

      The Nautilus is the most innovative Squid Industries product yet and is the first production balisong trainer to feature a channel-liner design with handle overlays. The Nautilus is ideal for quiet flipping.

      The Inked Nautilus features a DLC coated blade. DLC, or Diamond-Like Carbon, is an extremely hard coating used to reduce friction, wear, fretting, galling, and corrosion. Not only is it tough, but it's also incredibly thin and comes in at under 2 microns in thickness.

The "blade" shown in the following pictures is merely a dull slab of metal used to mimic the weight and feel of a real blade. Squidtrainers are not weapons and are strictly made for recreational and educational purposes only.
