CRKT Ikoma Sampa Folding KnifeAn encouraging trait of the international custom knife making community is a sense of brotherhood and the willingness to share and encourage other members. As an example, take the friendship of Hawaiian knife maker Ken Onion and Brazilian knife maker Flavio Ikoma. Ken has encouraged use of the Ikoma Korth ball bearing pivot system on his CRKT knives, and had also counselled Flavio on the directions his designs might take. Our new Sampa™, Flavio Ikoma's first folder designed for CRKT, is the fruit of that friendship. Ken suggested the general parameters of a "gentleman's tactical" folder and Flavio did the rest. In overview, this is a lightweight and stylish locking liner folder with a clean open build and exceptionally fast and fluid flipper opening. The blade is premium AUS 8 stainless steel in a drop point shape with recurve and high hollow grind. The Sampa frames are cold-forged 6061-T6 aluminum, which is clean-up machined, gray anodized for a titanium look, and then surface finished, revealing a bright surface pattern which aids grip. The strip locking liner is 420J2 stainless steel, precision inset into one frame. Flavio developed the IKBS ball bearing system to be entirely raceless, the bearings running in channels machined into the blade and frame. In this case, we have incorporated a stainless steel race/bushing in the aluminum frames for long life. The IKBS pivot system is durable and requires little maintenance, yielding a folder with great rigidity and no blade play. A spring-loaded ball detent keeps the blade securely closed until needed. Then, a fast press on the flipper yields instant opening and lock-up. A custom removable stainless clip is standard on both models.
