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.
