I was considering the idea of the Superior Implement Training when I realized nowhere that I can find specifies something in particular about a Superior Implement of Ki Focus when used as a weapon (I did find one though for just a Ki Focus used as a weapon).

If we use the example Iron Ki Focus, would the Deadly property work on a longsword with a weapon attack (Such as Melee Basic Attack) or would that fall in line with the implement power usage?

No, superior implement bonuses only apply to powers with the Implement keyword.

From PHB3, page 195:

A superior implement's properties apply only to attacks made with the implement. They affect only implement powers, even if an implement can be used to make weapon attacks.
