Squid Industries Mako Bottle Opener Trainer

Apex balisong trainer

Note: The following product is a balisong (butterfly) trainer and not a real knife. The "blade" shown in the following pictures is merely a dull slab of metal used to mimic the weight and feel of a real blade. Balisong trainers are not weapons and are strictly made for recreational and educational purposes only. 

Squid Industries is a labor of love. Founded by Lucas Cao (squidmaster23), an engineering student and balisong enthusiast, Squid Industries produces some of the finest hand-made knives and balisong trainers in the market, and the Mako Bottle Opener Trainer is a prime example of that otherworldly attention to detail. 

A new take on a classic idea, the Mako Bottle Opener Trainer combines a balisong trainer with a bottle opener. Designed to look like a swimming Mako shark, the nose of the blunt stonewashed unsharpened blade doubles as a bottle opener, while keeping your fingers intact while flipping the balisong. 

The perfect balance between flipping performance, durability, and utility – the handles are machined from lightweight 6061 T6511 aircraft-grade aluminum, with phosphor bronze washers for ultra-smooth flipping action. If you're looking for a top-tier flipper and trainer that comes equipped with added functionality – the sleek and streamlined Squid Industries Mako Bottle Opener Trainer is a must-have in your collection.
