Some kids dream of being a ball player. Flavio Ikoma of Presidente Prudente, Brazil wanted to be a knifemaker. In his adolescence he worked on knives of the Japanese sword variety in his father’s shop. Later, he went on to learn metallurgy, work with Ken Onion, and has become a tour de force of innovation. Bringing to market the revolutionary IKBS ball bearing pivot system (with he and Rick Lala) and evolving the classic locking liner with the new ILS Safety enhancement, available from CRKT in the No Time Off knife. Flavio Ikoma has been designing knives for over 20 years.
Makes All Your Other Stylish Knives Extinct.
It’s a knife that harkens back to another era. But with a hammered two-tone handle and IKBS ball bearing pivot system, this one will never get old—especially when it comes to cutting tasks.
The 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 unique, prehistoric look. But it goes through jobs like a T-rex with 21st century teeth thanks to a drop point blade with Veff Serrations that makes any ropes or fibrous materials 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.
While the Fossil is hardcore on the inside, it’s gorgeous on the outside. The handles are made of stain-less steel with a unique hammered finish. Contoured multi-colored G10 handle overlays make it look like a gator. But the blade won’t come down and bite you in the open position thanks to a frame lock.
Reach for the next evolution in well-crafted everyday carry knives - The Fossil.

I like CRKT knives. I like this knife. Solid blade. Solid feeling knife. Smooth open and close. Nice look. What makes me give this a lesser review is this. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Andrew W. Swain
Great knife, good balance and weight. The serration is a little weak and can chip easily. I was sharpening a stick for my son to roast marshmallows and it knicked the serration. Read morePublished 1 month ago by D. J. Shifflett
This knife is awesome! It's definitly the sharpest blade I've seen straight from the box. I don't care for the serrations really and the gimping could be a lot better. Read morePublished 1 month ago by JeepThing
