If it's this one then yup it should be fine:

No old Pentax flashes will break your camera.

The af201sa will not damage you camera. But for your K-x, it always fires at full power. You'll have to adjust the camera's aperture and ISO settings to get proper exposure. Its guide number is 20 (meter, ISO 100).
