The Sampa knife, is Flavio Ikoma's first folder designed for CRKT. 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. This is clearly a personal knife for the high-achiever who values innovative design and custom-knife quality in a personal accessory. It is also an excellent value.
