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 hard core, 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. This model of the Fossil™ has a non-reflective, black EDP coating that adds durability to the blade. Veff Serrations™ make quick work of rope, webbing and other fibrous materials. 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. The Fossil™ is also available in a plain edge version and a smaller version with a satin blade.
