When Brazilian designer Flavio Ikoma introduced his new, incredibly strong Deadbolt™ technology to the product developers at CRKT® their jaws dropped. The rest is history. This locking mechanism employs steel bolts that interlock with the blade when it’s deployed to yield strength that’s turning heads. A prominent button sits at the pivot point for simple, intuitive disengagement without fingers crossing the path of the blade. Of his new technology and the designs he created to house it, Ikoma says, “these are both designed to be super sturdy and able to perform heavy-duty tasks. Both body shapes resemble a great white sharks that inspires fears and respect.”

The Seismic™ is an aerodynamic, no-nonsense folding knife. With an IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system and a highly-ergonomic G10 handle, it’s as attractive as it is useful. Both the Seismic™ and Seismic™ Black are built with a G10 handle; the Seismic™ features a satin-finished plain-edge blade while the Seismic™ Black features a black PVD-coated blade with Veff Serrations™.

Deadbolt is here to show the world that there’s strength in simplicity. The Seismic™ is definitive proof.

The Seismic™ manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $150.00

How Deadbolt™ Works

Steel bolts interlock with the blade when it’s deployed to yield incredible strength. A prominent button sits at the pivot point for simple, intuitive disengagement without fingers crossing the path of the blade. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9-QlFg2kE8

How IKBS™ Works

Designer Flavio Ikoma and Rick Lala invented this system that sets lubed ball bearings into the folding knife pivot. The result is rapid blade deployment that is smooth and fast.
