The Inazuma No Ken brings a classic Japanese style to the modern era using up-to-date materials and techniques to bring a high-quality flipper. The D2 blade and black stonewash coating provide a robust blade perfect for any task. The blade rockets open thanks to the assisted action and the IKBS pivot system pushing the blade out fast. The knife is secured with CRKT's Deadbolt lock that is simple to use and gives incredible strength while using the blade. The handles are made of resilient G10 and give a reliable grip in any weather conditions. The deep carry pocket clip gives this knife a low profile.
