Spyderco Ikuchi (C242) Compression Lock Flipper Folder …
The Ikuchi (pronounced ee-koo-chee and named after a mythical Japanese sea monster) has an elegantly curved handle crafted with full, skeletonized stainless steel liners and stylish carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales. Designed by Paul Alexander, a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and a lifelong knife enthusiast, the ultra-slim Spyderco Ikuchi is a radically different approach to pocketknife form and function. The pocket-friendly EDC with a unique flipper wheel opening mechanism has the trademark Spydie-Hole in the blade that matches up with a hole in the handle for a distinctive look. Its blade is a modified clip point style with S30V steel. The handle scales are a milled Carbon Fiber and G-10 laminate. In the closed position, the handle’s narrow, open-backed profile completely contains the knife’s blade, except for a small textured section of the tang that serves as a discreet flipper opener.

Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. In 1981, the Glessers put down roots in Golden, Colorado and introduced the first Spyderco folding knife. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carry at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Since then, Spyderco has steadily grown to become one of the leaders in the cutlery industry. In addition to a worldwide distribution network and manufacturing resources in the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China.
