I purchased a Civivi Elementum EDC folding knife for review purposes, and although the full review is not quite ready, I wanted to share a little bit about it while it’s currently still in stock.
Here’s a little about it:
Its 3″ knife blade is the sweet spot for my knife needs and preferences – compact enough to be highly portable and convenient, long enough to be useful.
It’s a smooth flipper knife. The Ruike P801 that Anthony reviewed here is a good knife, but I do like this Civivi better – it’s smoother and has a little more character, rather than basic metal-slab handles. Flipper knives can be much easier to use than traditional thumb stud or thumb hole openers. For some, there’s also a “fidget factor” where they open and close such knives when their hands aren’t busy.
It’s less expensive premium knife. Civivi Knives, by WE Knives, is a recent budget-friendly knife maker. You have some style choices, but less expensive materials help make this knife more affordable than one made with an exotic tool steel and titanium handles.
The D2 tool steel blade and G-10 handles are solid choices. This is a knife that you could and should use on a daily basis.
It’s extremely well-made. It opens and closes smoothly, the knife shape is useful, the blade grind is nicely done.
This is a great knife, even shockingly good.
You should buy this if you want a taste of higher-end folding knife design at a lower price point. There are several color choices, as well as handle material choices if you’re willing to spend a little more.
Price: $50.20 as of the time of this posting
