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.
Presidente Prudente, Brazil
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.
