Columbia River CRKT 5480 Ikoma Carnufex Flipper Knife 3.975" Satin Plain Blade, Stainless Steel Handles with GRN Inlays
CR5480: Flavio Ikoma 5480 Carnufex
Make mincemeat of your daily tasks—dino style.
The Carnufex everyday carry folder is modeled after a keystone dinosaur predator—and for good reason. The form influences function for this attractive, shapely folder, and tears apart anything that gets in its way.
Flavio Ikoma of Presidente Prudente, Brazil designed the Carnufex to be an aggressive take on a general utility knife. This everyday carry folder’s unique look is modeled after the prehistoric ancestor of the crocodile, and the streamlined design and textured inlays look distinctly reptilian.
The unique, eye-catching designs of the handle serve to set off the no-nonsense stainless steel blade. Flavio Ikoma is the inventor of the IKBS Ball Bearing Pivot System and puts it to work with the Carnufex. After all, a knife named for a reptilian hunter should deploy swiftly and smoothly. The stainless steel stonewash handle features a glass-reinforced nylon textured inlay meant to replicate the prehistoric reptile for which it’s named.
The Carnufex, in Latin, translates to butcher. Put anything in its way, and watch it mow straight through.
