Drive it into your workday and it’ll bring BS to a screeching halt. Hot on the heels of the Seismic™, Flavio Ikoma is at it again with a solid, no-nonsense everyday carry folding knife built on utility without compromising on aesthetics. The defining feature: Deadbolt®. Put it to the big jobs—dig into a pork loin or carve a wooden stake—and it won’t flinch.
Flavio dreams up the big ideas in his shop in Presidente Prudente, Brazil. Deadbolt® is quite possibly the most impactful. Topping charts on both strength and usability, it’s strong enough to withstand any daily job and so simple it’s practically built with a user manual. The Linchpin™ shows it off with a 3.7” stainless steel modified sheepsfoot blade with a black PVD coating. Equipped with Veff Serrations™, it breezily mows through cord, rope, and fibrous materials. The prominent flipper deploys the blade from between the ergonomic glass-reinforced handle. The smooth, fast action is thanks to IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system.
Watch it laugh in the face of the toughest daily to-do.
How Deadbolt® Works
Steel bolts interlock with the blade when it’s deployed to yield incredible strength. A prominent button sits at the pivot point for simple, intuitive disengagement without fingers crossing the path of the blade.
