Wilson Tactical / Kirby Lambert Collaboration Knife

18 Aug

I’ll note that the limited run of this knife (10 serial numbered pieces at $550 each) completely sold out in about a day! In any case, the Wilson Tactical / Kirby Lambert “Snap with IKBS” knife is still worth reading about.

A Lambert folder has been on my dream list for several years now as I believe they represent the pinnacle of what a tactical folding knife should be. Below is info and some nice photo’s from Wilson Tactical on this knife:

“Snap with IKBS” by Kirby Lambert

Designed by Kirby to be the perfect EDC knife, here’s why:

  • Small Enough For Comfortable Everyday Carry, But Can Also Take On The Tasks Of A Large Tactical Folder
  • Wide Blade Design Gives It A Feel Of A Larger Knife
  • CPM 154CM Stainless Steel Blade For Maximum Edge Holding And Corrosion Resistance
  • .080” 6AL/4V Titanium Liners For Maximum Strength And Minimal Weight
  • Carbon Fiber Bolsters And G10 Handle Scales For A Lifetime Of Use
  • Finger Choil Allows For Added Comfort As Well As A Rock Solid Grip In Both Regular And Reverse Grip
  • Fold Over Pocket Clip Allows For Deep Concealed Carry
  • Great Ergonomics…
  • Positioning Of The Flipper Combined With A Solid Detent And The IKBS Allow It To Fire Open Like Lightning
  • Secure Lock-Up In Both The Open And Closed Position

IKBS – Ikoma Korth Bearing System

Rather than the blade rotating against washers, a race is machined into the liner where ball bearings are placed. The blade then rotates on the ball bearings allowing the blade to rotate with minimal resistance while retaining zero side to side blade play.
