Description
CR5473: 5473 Fossil Black, Veff Serrations
CRKT
 
Makes all your other stylish knives extinct. 

The Fossil is a knife that hearkens back to another era. With a hammered two-tone and IKBS ball bearing pivot system, this one will never get old—especially 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 a distinctive breed of EDC folder.

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.

What a looker! But...
Really unique looking knife with excellent build quality. Deployment of the blade runs smooth as silk. The Veff serrations also add to its odd look, yet are very functional for cutting fabric. However be careful not to use them with tough materials, I tried cutting a pp strapping band and the blade chipped at the serrations. The Chinese budget steel they used might also be held partially accountable for this which is kind of a bummer for me, it renders the knife not suitable for my rather abusive EDC tasks at work. The sensitivity of the Veff serrations in combination with the budget steel would have been nice to know, but if you read this I am glad you won't be doing the same mistake as I did. Generally I am pleased by the looks and the overall build quality of this knife and I'll just keep it as a collector's item.
