Incorporating designer Flavio Ikoma’s eponymous IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system and Ken Onion’s Assisted Opening, the Attaboy™ glides open quickly and smoothly. The 2.7-inch drop-point blade is made of D2 steel for superb edge retention, while Deadbolt®, another Ikoma innovation, holds it safely in place when deployed. Despite the small proportions, the knife offers a strong and secure grip that feels natural in the hand. The hybrid front flipper ensures the blade’s entire cutting edge is available to use without interference, while the choil lets you choke the blade for maximum control.
Built to spend the whole day at your side, the Attaboy™ uses a glass-reinforced nylon handle that helps it reach its featherweight status. It measures less than 4 inches long when closed and the deep-carry clip lets it ride low in your pocket, where it comfortably fades into the background until it’s needed. Now that’s a job well done.
How Assisted Opening Works
It's held securely closed in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part way through the rotation the blade opens at impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.
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.

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.
