For years, Flavio Ikoma of Presidente Prudente, Brazil toiled over the mechanism that was to become Deadbolt®. Finally, it’s perfected: steel bolts interlock with the CTS-XHP carpenter steel blade when it’s deployed to yield outrageous strength. A prominent button sits at the pivot point on the burly titanium 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.
The overbuilt XOC™ is a showpiece with powerful capabilities.
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.
