"Snap with IKBS" by Kirby Lambert
These newly designed knives featured in the new CUSTOM ALLIANCE will be few in number, and will quickly become a valued centerpiece of your collection. These offerings will typify the WILSON standards of extraordinary quality, classic design and unmatched value.
Designed by Kirby to be the perfect EDC knife, here's why:
IKBS - Ikoma Korth Bearing System
- 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
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.

"I have always enjoyed working with my hands and being a creative person. I attended school at the University of Calgary where I studied fine art and took many classes in drawing, printmaking and sculpture. This along with my fascination of knives paved the way for me to become a full-time knifemaker.
The majority of knives I make are tactical/utility folding knives and are bought by collectors as well as military and law enforcement officers who use them in the field.
I believe that a knife should not only look good but should be functional as well. That is why I only use top grade materials such as titanium, carbon fiber, G10 and specialty steels such as CPM 154CM.
I began making knives in 1994 and have been a full-time knifemaker since 2002. In that time, I have achieved many goals. I have been featured in a number of publications such as Blade magazine, American Handgunner, Tactical Knives and Excalibur, as well as being featured on the cover of Blade magazine.
I have been a long time member of the Canadian Knifemaker's Guild and am currently the Vice President."
