CRKT Fossil Black Compact Framelock Knife, Steel/G-10 Handle Flavio Ikoma Design

SKU: CR5462


Designed by Flavio Ikoma in Presidente Prudente, Brazil

Makes All of your Other Knives Extinct.


It’s a compact knife that hearkens 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™ Black Compact 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 clip point blade style that makes virtually anything in its path history.

A one-of-a-kind looking compact 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 clip point blade is open. In the features department, it’s survival of the fittest.

While the Fossil™ Black Compact is hardcore on the inside, it’s gorgeous on the outside. The handles are made of stainless 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™ Black Compact.
