Arctic (Beta version) - Rhino Grey


With class-leading specs and features, we have designed the Arctic to be the best bang for your buck balisong trainer on the market. Typically, budget sandwich construction trainers suffer from poor durability and handle weakness. We have specially designed a high tolerance pocketed barrel spacer system that, when combined with the hidden zen pins, creates a sandwich handle that offers unmatched rigidity and strength in this tier.

The Arctic features a hardened CNC milled trainer blade, incorporating smooth edge chamfers and a fully crowned spine, completely unmatched specs at this price-point.

The quality and level of detail we have incorporated into the Arctic, truly makes it a standout trainer for the price, perfect for beginners and regular flippers alike. If you are looking for the best high-end budget trainer money can buy, the Arctic is for you.
