Designed by knife innovator Flavio Ikoma the XOC might be considered overkill but Ikoma thinks that bigger is better and in this case he might be right. This limited edition folder is the first design in the world to house the Deadbolt locking mechanism. This massive flipper comes with titanium inlaid carbon fiber handles and high performance CTS-XHP Stainless Steel blade. Blade: The XOC exhibits the curves and lines Flavio Ikoma is known for with a large, sweeping recurve blade of CTS-XHP for high-end performance. The blade deploys fast and smooth via an index flipper or can be opened utilizing the thumb stud pins or "shackle key" blade cutout. A beautiful satin finish adds to the custom feel of this limited production piece. Handle: The clean lines of the carbon fiber handles are elegant and ergonomic in the hand. A titanium inlay near the blade houses the Deadbolt locking mechanism that is as simple as pushing a button to operate while delivering robust strength. Steel pegs interlock with the blade when it is deployed to yield strength that gives uncompromising reliability even under serious weight. A brass colored pivot collar adds another custom detail contrasting with the grey titanium. The "shackle key" hole at the pommel end allows for easy lanyard attachment. Carries via a right hand, tip-up, stainless steel carry clip. Comes with original box and leather case. Excellent condition.
