Paul Alexander Design

The ultra-slim Spyderco Ikuchi is a radically different approach to pocketknife form and function. Designed by Paul Alexander, a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and a lifelong knife enthusiast, 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 stunning carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales. 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 flipper opener. Stroking this section of the blade with an index finger or thumb provides leverage to swiftly pivot it into the open position, where locks securely via Spyderco’s patented Compression Lock™ mechanism. The satin-finished CPM® S30V® stainless steel blade is full-flat ground for exceptional edge geometry and cutting performance and has an acute, scalpel-like point for detailed work. To ensure discreet carry while keeping the Ikuchi instantly accessible, its handle includes a low-profile, deep-pocket wire clip that is reversible for left or right-side tip-up carry.

"When out of the box it opened easily enough, but it soon became very to almost impossible to open the next day for reasons I can't identify, I finally got it to open easily by bending the locking bar to reduce pressure on the detent bar, and now it's opening normally as it did when received: The issue seems to be the detent being too strong with my example of the Ikuchi, I've done some GOOGLING and many people have had this issue with some Ikucis and other have not had an issue ! Note, even if it opens OK now, and I could bring my rating back up to 4, it's not a fidget friendly opening system as the gimping on the opening surface feels painful to use after more than a few openings of the folder ! It's ok if you open the Ikuchi to use it to cut something and then close it when you are finished, but you really wont enjoy opening and closing it many times as it feels like it's peeling the skin of your finger or thumb. The rest like build and edge sharpness, aesthetics etc .... are great."
