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.

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.

Love this knife!
Knife is great for opening mail, boxes, and cutting up apples etc. The handle design is very unique and interesting. The flipping action is about the best I've ever seen. Little 'catchy' for pocket carry, but worth it for the looks you get when you pull it out. Not threatening, just a facinating design. Pocket clip was a little tight, but easy to take off and adjust.

One of the Best Looking Knives
I bought the larger Fossil for myself and my daughter wanted a "badass" knife so I got her the smaller knife to better fit her woman sized hands. She loves it! In my opinion the Fossil is one of the coolest looking knives around but its also a good knife. The flipper opens the blade all the way, the liner lock holds it open and is easy to unlock. The blade is very sharp and the contoured handle fits the hand perfectly. Truthfully I bought this knife just to look at and I often pick it up just to open and close the blade. Its a fluid motion I never tire of. I haven't found a single flaw, its solid and the quality is as expected, high.
