The Spyderco Ikuchi is a knife that was created by Paul Alexander, a mechanical engineer and knife enthusiast. It has a sleek and simple design, with carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales and a stainless steel liner that has been skeletonized. The blade is made of CPM-S30V steel and has a smooth satin finish. To make it easy to use with just one hand, it has Spyderco's patented Compression Lock and a wheel flipper, which works like a spark wheel on a lighter. It also comes with an ambidextrous deep carry wire pocket clip for convenient carrying.
