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.

I cannot believe the quality of the entire Fossil line... I have purchased one of every variant plus one extra small ( 5460 ) as an EDC. The home run of the year!

Great knife
Two features that stick out as things I don't really like about this knife are that it is a bit round and doesn't lay as flat in my pocket as other knives I have owned and the clip is hard to use. Other than those two minor things it is an awesome knife. I use it as an every day carry knife and I love the smooth opening action and the sharp blade right out of the box. This was a great purchase.
