Description
CR5460: 5460 Fossil
CRKT
 
Makes all your other stylish knives extinct.

Flavio Ikoma's latest folding knife looks like a T-rex on stainless steel steroids. The Fossil™ is one part hardcore, 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.

8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Perfect EDC
Great knife ! Very sharp OTB, I mean hair popping sharp. A bit heavy of the size, because of the steel handlen but no big deal. What a pleasure to flip open it thanks of the IKBS. The pocket clip is a serious con. I had to modify it to fit better in my hand. The thumbhole is quite sharp, so not very easy to use. when the flipper isn't discrete to use. I love it anyway.
