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 Bottle Opener is the trainer for you.
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. Blemished models come with a blemished 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 Bag here.
The Mako Bottle Opener is the perfect balance between flipping performance, durability, and utility. Machined from 6061 T6511 aircraft grade aluminum, this trainer doubles as a top tier flipper and bottle opener. If you’re looking for a cool party trick and useful EDC tool, then the Mako Bottle Opener is for you.
