CR5460: 5460 Fossil
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.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip

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.

CRKT 5460 Fossil attention getter
Best under $50 EDC I have! Flipper works seamlessly, smoothest I own. OTB blade was sharp as hell! Beautiful knife and when I pull it out everyone wants to see it and remarks how cool it is. Still love my RAT 1 and Kershaw, but overall this is my favorite knife under $50. Pocket clip is a real nuisance at times.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
I own a few CRKT blades. I usually carried at least one for daily use the entire decade I spent on active duty and I must say this is one of the best blades. I stropped it and it would make a nice daily shaver. Perfect weight and easy one hand open and close. The only problem is the pocket clip is pure sh#t. It is thin and warps if it is clipped to your pocket when you sit down. If you don't mind a pocket knife then remove the clip and viola. Other than that it is an excellent knife and the handle offers a great gripping surface.

Columbia River 5460 Fossil
Overall a great knife. Looks great, excellent build quality and a very sharp blade. I have four other knives and actually rotate them each day for my EDC. This knife easily holds its own with the others. I prefer the flipper style opener which this has but it does take a little more effort to open than it would if it were an assisted. No regrets buying this knife.
