The CRKT Fossil combines the best from designer Flavio Ikoma of Presidente Prudente, Brazil. With styling cues found on his previous Sampa and Carajas models, it ramps up the artistic flair to create a piece that is clearly Ikoma, yet distinctively a new breed of EDC folder.The knife has a distinctive, prehistoric look. But it goes through jobs like a T rex on stainless steel steroids courtesy of a hollow drop point blade style that makes practically anything in its path history.A one of a kind looking pocket knife, it features the IKBS ball bearing pivot system, combined with an opening flipper the result is blade deployment that is smooth and fast. A thumb hole cutout in the blade gives you a second option for opening the knife. The flipper also turns into a handsome finger guard when the blade is open. In the features department, it's survival of the fittest.
