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.

rejoice dino fans!
To everyone grew up loving dinosaurs and just happen to also be a knife enthusiast, this one can not go wrong. As a folding knife its f&f is well executed; blade has a beautiful grind, handle is given a nice stonewash and the ergo is really great. Plus the many design cues that refer this knife to a badass prehistoric crocodile...this is a bad boy seeking well-deserved attention.
