The Spyderco Ikuchi was designed by Paul Alexander, Ph.D, a mechanical engineer and lifelong knife enthusiast.
The Ikuchi features a slim, slightly curved handle with full length, skeletonized steel liners and carbon fiber/G-10 laminate handle scales.
When in the closed position the Ikuchi's CPM S30V blade is completely contained within the handle, with the exception of a small jimped section of the blade tang that serves as a flipper tab. This allows for either a conventional flip using the index finger, or it can be operated as a front flipper using the thumb.
The Ikuchi locks up via Spyderco's patented Compression Lock which allows for easy one handed unlocking. There is a deep carry, wire pocket clip which allows for tip up carry on either the right or left side.
