- IKBS™ Ball Bearing Pivot System
- Flipper Opening
- Satin Blade Finish
When he set to work on this one, Eric Ochs of Sherwood, Oregon was determined to deck it out with details. That’s just what he did with this otherworldly everyday carry, starting with the eye-catching blade shape. Though the basic form stays true to a traditional spear point, the blade touts a harpoon feature on the spine, adding serious depth and elevating its utility by providing a solid thumb rest. The 3.3” stainless steel blade is polished with a satin finish for excellent corrosion resistance.
The durable, G10 handles stand up to the blade’s high aesthetic with a symmetrical carved pattern. It’s a true workhorse: the handles house a solid locking liner and smooth IKBS™ technology. Leveraging a ball bearing-based pivot mechanism allows the blade to deploy quickly and with reduced friction thanks to precision-engineered stainless steel spheres. No spring-assist needed.
The Terrestrial™: ready to take on a world full of dirty jobs.
Eric Ochs grew up with the Oregon backwoods constantly knocking at his door. In a way, his fate was sealed when his father gifted him his first knife when he was just six years old. Since then, he’s hard pressed to remember a day without one in his pocket. This self-taught talent is still inspired to this day by the pursuit of adventure in the Pacific Northwest’s rugged terrain from the top of the North Cascades to the lazy, meandering rivers at their feet.
