Columbia River (CRKT) Ikoma Fossil Folder With Stainless/G10 Handle
The CRKT Fossil looks like it's fresh from an excavation site. Its prehistoric curves can be likened to a fossilized dinosaur tooth while the handle looks like it was ossified after millions of years beneath the earth.
It's hard to do, but the knife expertly balances art with functionality.
Created by knife designer Flavio Ikoma, the Fossil features an IKBS ball-bearing system and a flipper opening mechanism, so even though the knife looks like a fossil, it's not outdated.
The knife itself is a large 8.88 inches when engaged and features a 3.96-inch, 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade with a drop point. Other versions of the Fossil have Veff serrations and a black EDP blade, but this version has a satin finish plain edge blade.
The handle is made of 2Cr13 stainless steel with a hammer finish that gives it more personality, and the two-tone G10 scales add more grip. Aside from just looking good, the handle feels natural in the hand. It also comes complete with a one position pocket clip.
