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
The Squiddy is the world's first CNC machined plastic balisong (butterfly knife) trainer made completely from CPVC. These new second generation Squiddys ( November 2018), has a redesigned zen pin system which makes it significantly more durable.
The "C" is CPVC stands for chlorinated which has a higher impact and heat resistance than typical PVC, making it great for a balisong trainer. Additionally, 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.
Add a one of a kind balisong to your collection with the Squiddy from Squid Industries. This ultra-light butterfly knife is constructed from durable PVC-C in a vibrant white color. It utilizes the same hardware as our other premium models—phosphorous bronze washers and stainless 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 butterfly trainer!
The Squiddy has a pretty adorable looking face. If you want to flip on the bus on the way to school or while you're walking through down town, you probably don't want to disturb others or potentially be seen as a threat. The plastic look and feel also makes them great for kids. Heavy steel/zinc balisongs usually don't work well for children and even regular adults who can easily bruise their hands on.
On a similar note to public friendliness, the Squiddy is approved by the TSA. You can fly with it in your carry on baggage and flip with it in the airport and even while you're on the airplane (not recommended).
Channel constructed PVC-C handles provide a strong and lightweight build.
Phosphorus bronze washers for ultra-smooth flipping action.
Latch-less, channel constructed handles offer ultra clean lines and a pleasing minimalist aesthetic.
