Blemished trainers are models that didn't pass our inspection process due to cosmetic imperfections but are guaranteed to flip just as well as our new products.
Blemished product sales are final (no returns accepted)but they do qualify for warranty (mechanical defects only). Please refer to the pictures for an example of a blemished model. Some of these blemished models may have varying handle versions. Blemished models come with a box and may come with the following, but not limited to:
Discolored or faded anodizing
Inconsistent blade finish
Inconsistent handle finish/ textures
Mismatching colored handles
Flawed or missing laser engraving
Each and every Squid Industries balisong is hand assembled and tested to ensure that each unit is an exceptional flipper. Balisongs come thread locked.
Blemished products arrive in a Squid Industries box with a sticker. Blemished products do not come in a Squid Industries Microfiber Bag. You can purchase a Squid Industries Microfiber Baghere.

NOTE: The following product is a balisong (butterfly) trainer and not a real knife. 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. Balisong trainers are not weapons and are strictly made for recreational and educational purposes only.
