The ultra-slim Spyderco Ikeuchi is a radically different approach to pocketknife form and function. Designed by Paul Alexander, a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and a lifelong knife enthusiast, the Ikeuchi (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 edge with an index finger or thumb provides leverage to swiftly pivot it into the open position, where it locks securely via the 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 Ikeuchi instantly accessible, its handle includes a low-profile, deep-pocket wire clip that reverses left or right-side tip-up carry..
