Flavio Ikoma

Location: Presidente Prudente, Brazil | Years Designing: 23

Some kids dream of being a ballplayer. Flavio wanted to be a knifemaker. In his adolescence, he worked on knives of the Japanese sword variety in his father’s shop. He has gone on to learn metallurgy, to work with Ken Onion, and to become a force for innovation. Not only has Flavio brought to market the revolutionary IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system (with Rick Lala), but he also showed the world that there’s impressive strength in simplicity with his game-changing Deadbolt® innovation.
