No Time Off from designer Flavio Ikoma of Presidente Prudente, Brazil, was initially designed to be a mechanic's folder. It's strong, yet versatile enough to handle whatever tasks you throw its way.
Flavio Ikoma's rugged everyday carry folding knife is looking for a chance to flex its strength. An IKBS ball bearing pivot system with a flipper smoothly deploys a beefy modified drop point blade. Then the new innovative ILS safety sets a pin between the frame and locking liner and you are ready get to work. Grab the heavy-duty waffle iron traction grip handle and good luck letting go.
You'll be amazed with how smoothly Flavio's IKBS ball bearing pivot system deploys the blade on this little workhorse. And you'll love how the patent-pending ILS (Ikoma Locking System) ingeniously uses a lever with an elbow to automatically set a pin between the frame and liner. This helps prevent the liner from slipping down the blade ramp, and gives you an extra layer of safety when debris such as lint, dirt and grease gunk up your locking liner. When you're done using your knife, press down on the ILS thumb rest and slide the locking liner over to disengage the safety.
