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. These are blemished units of our second generation Squiddys. Our new second generation Squiddys have a revised zen pin design which offers much higher durability.
Blemished product sales are final (no returns accepted) but they do qualify for warranty (mechanical defects only). Any damages incurred by use is not covered by warranty. Replacement parts are available for purchase. Blemished models arrive in blemished boxes and may come with the following, but not limited to:
Inconsistent machining finish
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 Squiddy is the world's first CNC machined plastic balisong (butterfly knife) trainer made completely from CPVC. These new second generation Squiddys released in November 2018 have a redesigned zen pin system which makes it significantly more durable.
The "C" in CPVC stands for chlorinated which has a higher impact and heat resistance than typical PVC, making it great for a balisong trainer.This trainer is safe, legal everywhere, and perfect for young folks whose parents don't want them shredding their new sofa with a sharp butterfly knife.
Despite this being our most affordable model, we guarantee that it shares the same phenomenal balance that our higher end products have. The Squiddy comes equipped with press-fit steel rods in the end of each handle to produce better feel and momentum in each trick.
Whether you’re just starting out or an already experienced flipper, the Squiddy is an essential trainer to have in any flippers collection.
Manufactured and assembled in the USA
The Squiddy is made of plastic, has no sharp edges, and is legal everywhere!
The Squiddy is designed with a friendly, harmless looking face. The non-threatening face makes it a perfect EDC flipper. The rounded look and feel also makes 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 and while on the airplane.
