Flavio Ikoma's latest folding knife looks like a T-rex on stainless steel steroids. The Fossil™ is one part hard core, one part gorgeous and one part 12,000 pound flesh-eating dinosaur.
The Fossil™ combines the best from designer Flavio Ikoma. With styling cues found on his previous Sampa™ ; and Carajas™ ; models, the Fossil™ ramps up the artistic flair to create a piece that is clearly Ikoma, yet distinctively a new breed of EDC folder.
The pocket knife features an IKBS ball bearing system, combined with an opening flipper for silky smooth blade deployment. The flipper turns into a handsome finger guard when the blade is open. A thumb hole cutout in the blade gives you a second option for opening the knife. The handles of the Fossil™ are stainless steel with a unique hammer finish. The knife locks open solidly with a frame lock. Duo-tone G10 scales add contour and grip to the handle. The pocket clip is tip-up carry only.
The Fossil™ has the beauty of a museum piece combined with the shear muscle of a prehistoric carnivore.
As usual, another well-made knife Glad I got mine before it went out-of-stock Good to look at, comfortable to hold/use. Durable and classy, all at the same time.

This is a really nice knife. Has a very aggressive look and a sturdy design. I only wish that the autolocks feature were part of the design, it would give one more confidence that the blade would stay in the deployed position.

This knife is currently out of stock, there is a reason for that It is a terrific blade My newest favorite blade from CRKT It is soo smooth you will not believe it. QUALITY from the "get go". Comfortable, perfect size. This one is a winner. I will be buying several more to give as gifts to our guides when we are in Alaska this summer.

I saw this knife at the 2014 Shot Show. I really liked the looks and feel of it.I purchased this as soon as it was available and I'm very satisfied. I carry this knife always. The weight is perfect for its size and the blade opening action is swift and secure.
