The optimal butterfly knife trainer for any competitive flipper on a tight budget. The Squiddy-AL combines the fun and friendly aesthetic of our popular Squiddy line with the premium flipping characteristics of our higher-end balisong trainers.


In 2017, the Squiddy stunned the industry with its innovative all-polymer design as it quickly earned a reputation for great balance, durability, and accessibility. With its adorable face and lightweight design, the Squiddy became a staple part of every flippers’ collection, novice and advanced alike.

While the original Squiddy line offers excellent balance characteristics, it doesn’t have the same weight properties of our superior metal balisong trainers. With the Squiddy-Al, flippers can now enjoy the pleasant, non-threatening aesthetic of a Squiddy and also the satisfying weight and feel of metal.
