This Krake Raken V2 model (formerly known as the Kraken), has a silver anodized finished 7075 aluminum alloy handle and a modified tanto blade with a long swedge and a satin finish.
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.Features:
Wanting to get into flipping but don't want to drop $400 or more on a solid flipper? This balisong flips as good if not better than staples like the Alpha Beast, Replicant, Basilisk etc at nearly half the cost. The bushings are on point and the overall balance is fairly neutral with an ever so slight rear bias- perfect for most flipping styles. It's not winning any awards for EDC but for flipping, this is one of the best balisongs money can buy, including midtechs and customs.
