I've always carried and used knives and other edged tools as an outdoor laborer and have been using this knife for 2 years and it slices great, I've pried with it, and sharpened it many times. I use a mower blade sharpener and use the rounded edge of the stone like a rod to sharpen the recurve portion

I got mine a little over a year and a half ago and I absolutely love it. I believe I paid $50 ish for mine but that was a while ago. I carry it every day on a farm and I can say it’s been abused and it has held up. Only issue I’ve had is totally my fault. I got out of my friends truck and as I carry it in the right pocket and I got out of the passenger side the clip caught on the door latch and bent it it did bend back into place it’s got a little play and needs to be tightened after a couple days. But Like I said that’s all my fault. It’s an amazing knife 10/10 recommend

I'm kind of new to knifes and I don't know much about them but I just want to get a good knife to carry for EDC. I'm looking at this knife and I was wondering if anyone could tell me what type of knife exactly it is. Is it a gravity knife, spring assisted, automatic? Thanks.

Just picked up one of these for 20 bucks because of damaged packaging, great blade. Silky smooth and great indexing, far exceeds my expectations

I am copying a comment that I made today about this knife: "This is one (plain blade version) of the best flippers that I own in terms of action and ergonomics. And I own more expensive flippers which are not as well-balanced and well done as the Fossil. On the aesthetics it surely appeals to those who like a sci-fi folder (especially with this partly serrated blade). In due course I liked that too, and understand how the outside G-10 scales play a major part in making handlig the knife perfect. Congrats to Flavio Ikoma (who designed the Fossil and co-invented the IKBS bearing system) and CRKT, which built the knife!"

That one with the serrations is a fiendish looking blade. I love it. Perfect for scaring the hell out of everyone at the party when you pull it out to open a bag of chips. Lol

Went ahead and got this beauty (the full size) before I knew for sure if I could legally pocket carry a blade that big in my state. Even though we have Constitutional Carry here, I still renewed my carry license. Thank God I did, because it's only legal to carry with a concealed carry license. Our states seriously need to catch up with the terrible knife laws.

okay so I'm curious is there any hope for me to get a better blade steel for this thing… because I love the knife. but I would like to be able to hold an edge that will stand up to medium-heavy EDC use. as I use one knife for EDC/tactical

I met a gentleman the other day who was carrying one of these. So of course we handed each other our knives to play with. I really liked it a lot. If it came with better steel I'd already have a couple. I handed him an s110v para 2 with CF scales, ZT 0630 CF with M390 and a microtech combat troodon. He liked them all 😎 hey CRKT better steel and I'm in!!! Thanks for the review scout. I don't know how I wasn't sub'd, so I did.
