Blemished models are units 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. Some of these blemished models may have varying handle versions. Blemished models come with a box and may come with the following, but not limited to:
Discolored or faded anodizing
Inconsistent blade finish
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.
Extra Blemished Products
Extra Blemished models have more severe cosmetic imperfections that can include:
The Krake Raken V2.5 model (formerly known as the Kraken), has 7075 aluminum alloy handles and AEB-L stainless steel blades.
The highly anticipated Krake Raken balisong butterfly knife offers the first live-blade bali from Squid Industries. It features all of the precision-engineered smoothness of a Squid trainer, updated with a beautifully finished tanto blade. The channel constructed aluminum handles are built with rounded edges, a crowned spine, and bushings. The Krake Raken has been upgraded from 6061 to a 7075 aluminum alloy, which boasts a higher strength and is more durable to drops and use.
This second iteration of the Krake Raken integrates an improved aesthetic and performance. The handle ends have been rounded to decrease damage from drops and the handle texturing is now deeper, providing a better grip. The zen pins have been upgraded with harder steel to preserve the gap between the handles, and the bushing system has been redesigned to further reduce—or even negate—handle play.
Channel constructed 7075 aluminum handles provide a strong, lightweight, and well-balanced design.
AEB-L stainless steel for high blade strength and corrosion resistance.
Bushings provide the ultra-smooth flipping action Squid Industries is known for.
