For years, Flavio Ikoma of Presidente Prudente, Brazil toiled over the mechanism that was to become the Deadbolt® lock. Finally, it’s perfected: steel bolts interlock with the steel blade and the liners when it’s deployed to yield outrageous strength. The IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system ensures it opens quickly and smoothly. A prominent button sits at the pivot point on the highly ergonomic G10 handle for simple disengagement.
As a finishing detail, Flavio added a discreet torx screw in the handle for deployment customization. Modify the blade detent for an easier or more powerful flip that’s all yours.
Seismic™ sets a new precedent for strength and simplicity.
How Deadbolt® Works
Steel bolts interlock with the blade when it’s deployed to yield outrageous 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.
