Limited to 2 per household


The Story:

The Tsunami debuted in 2020 and was Squid Industries’ first titanium balisong. Originally starting out as a live blade, the Tsunami quickly became a staple in every competitive flipper’s arsenal. It required months of extensive research, trial and error, and dozens of iterations to create what we believe is the ideal flipping experience. The Tsunami was immediately received into the balisong community, and its popularity quickly propelled the creation of the Tsunami Trainer, which offers a similar flipping experience.

The Tsunami Trainer is crafted by our skilled machinists on our state-of-the-art Okuma M560 CNC machines. They’re then assembled by our elite assembly team to ensure that each and every unit is finely tuned to perfection. The Tsunami is our pride and joy, and I hope that you love flipping it as much as we enjoy making it.

Product Details:

Every Tsunami is serialized and comes with an aluminum Certificate of Authenticity card for product verification. Each unit also comes with a beautiful jeweled texture on the inside of the handles, which creates a unique visual aesthetic during flipping. The Tsunami Trainer is offered in two variants: Stonewashed and Satin. The Stonewashed variant features stonewashed handles and a trainer blade with stainless steel hardware. The Satin variant features lightly polished handles and a satin-brushed blade with titanium hardware. Both versions of the Tsunami trainer come with 6 weight pins (3 for each handle) and a complimentary stainless steel hardware kit.
