Brazilian genius Flavio Ikoma’s latest everyday carry knife looks like an artful prehistoric fossil with multi-colored G10 overlays and a hammered finished frame. He evolved the design from there with the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system and a beast of a blade. The Fossil™ will be your knife that never gets old.

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 distinctive, prehistoric look. But it goes through jobs like a T-rex on stainless steel steroids courtesy of a drop point blade style that makes virtually anything in its path history.
A one-of-a-kind looking pocket knife, it features the IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system, combined with an opening flipper the result is 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.

Some kids dream of being a ballplayer. Flavio wanted to be a knifemaker. In his adolescence, he worked on knives of the Japanese sword variety in his father’s shop. He has gone on to learn metallurgy, to work with Ken Onion, and to become a force for innovation. Flavio brought to market the revolutionary IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system (with Rick Lala), and evolved the classic locking liner with the ILS™ safety, exclusively available from CRKT® in the No Time Off™ knives.
