The Ikuchi is in stock at GP knives if anyone is looking for one!

Saw that they are in at the SFO as well. I would buy one if it wasn’t for the CF/G10 scales, this beauty needs smooth CF scales!

Good Question hope we get an answer I will buy one if the flaws were corrected.

Was there ever confirmation that they were actually making CQI changes to it?

Also, see vid @7:30. Eric confirms at least a pivot bushing upgrade for future compression lock and lightweight models. Will be a seamless change. Kapara, Ikuchi, and Sage are ones he specifically mentions.

I got confirmation of CQI changes a little bit ago: a bushing pivot system and a more recessed tip.

Hope that helps folks with their decisions,

Do we know that the Ikuchi showing up have these new CQI changes?

Glad they fixed it and hope the design is a success as it should be.

Not sure if I'll purchase yet. If I do, it will be the fourth Spyderco where I purchased one from the first batch, which had issues, then had to purchase a second one months down the road for a corrected copy; effectively paying double for one good knife. Not sure how I feel about that right now.

I had no issues with my Ikuchi. I think most didn’t. I have sold most of my Spydercos and will end up with two Great Eastern Cutlery traditional slip joints. However, if I were to buy another Spyderco it would be the Ikuchi. Thin, light ( I can carry it clipped inside my shirt pocket), supremely easy to open, sharp, pointy and extremely useful for my knife needs. Obviously, I love that knife.

I have a tendency to buy only sprint runs immediately (for obvious reasons) :)
When it comes to the Spydiechef i kinda wish i'd picked up a pre-black hardware one though since i much prefer the looks of the "old" one.
