It's a knife that harkens back to another era. But with a hammered two-tone handle and the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system, this one will never get oldespecially when it comes to cutting tasks.
The Fossil™ combines the best from designer Flavio Ikoma of Presidente Prudente, Brazil. With styling cues found on his previous Sampa™ and Carajas™ models, it ramps up the artistic flair to create a piece that is clearly Ikoma, yet distinctively a new breed of EDC folder.
The knife has a unique, prehistoric look. But it goes through jobs like a T-rex on stainless steel steroids courtesy of a 3.410" hollow drop point blade.
A one-of-a-kind looking pocket knife, it features the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system, combined with an opening flipper for blade deployment that is smooth and fast. A thumb hole cutout in the blade gives you a second option for opening the knife. The flipper also turns into a handsome finger guard when the blade is open. In the features department, it's survival of the fittest.
While the Fossil™ is hardcore on the inside, it's gorgeous on the outside. The handles are made of stain-less steel with a unique hammered finish. Contoured multi-colored G10 handle overlays make it look like a gator. But the blade won't come down and bite you in the open position thanks to a frame lock.

Great knife, sturdy and well-made. I use it for EDC and it has yet to disappoint. I have not had any problems with the clip, but I have not had it for that long.

I've had this knife for almost two years now and absolutely love it, I carry it everyday. My only complaint is the clip: the one that came with it is flimsy and bends/catches very easily. I asked for a replacement and was sent one within a week. The new clip is much sturdier and has yet to bend. The service that accompanies a purchase from CRKT as well as the quality of the knife has made me a lifetime customer.

Love this knife but the belt clip is a pain. Sticks out to far and catches on everything. Bends easily

Great balance. Came to me hair popping sharp. This is a beautifully crafted knife that will look good in any collection or in your pocket. Try it you won't be disappointed.
