Arctic 2 - Dragon Purple


The Arctic is the ultimate sandwich construction budget balisong trainer.

Featuring the Glidr tuned bushing system, you can expect ultra smooth, low friction flipping with zero blade tap and minimal handle play out of the box.

Our unique force-distributing pocketed barrel spacer system turns the sandwich construction handles into two rock-solid units, able to hold up to almost anything you can throw at them.

Our latest revision, the Arctic 2, brings updates centred around improving acoustics, tactile feel and durability. Changes include a revised tang profile, improved zen pin system, deeper handle milling and thicker pivot screws that are less prone to stripping.


  • Precision tuned bushing pivot system
  • Hardened 440c trainer blade
  • 6061 Aluminium sandwich handles
  • Stainless steel barrel spacers
  • Hidden zen pins
  • Crowned blade spine
  • All-round chamfered blade edges
