The CIVIVI Plethiros is the budget friendly EDC flipper designed by iconic custom designer Elijah Isham. The Plethiros delivers Isham’s iconic, eccentric style while providing a highly functional and utilitarian cutting tool. CIVIVI has executed the Plethiros in a robust yet refined construction. This version comes with Black Hand Rubbed Brass handle scales, black stainless steel liners and a San Mai stainless Damascus blade.
Brand new, direct from CIVIVI.
Blade: A fully flat ground, stainless San Mai Damascus blade rides on a stainless steel ball bearing pivot for ultra smooth, fast deployment via the minimalist flipper tab that is fully hidden in the open position. The blade is slim yet robust with a subtle reverse Tanto point and sweeping belly for piercing and slicing performance. A subtle index finger choil allows for full sharpening and added control in fine tasks. Acid etched, pattern welded Damascus gives the blade a visually appealing look with a more subdued feel lent by the hand rubbed black finish and a rounded triangle blade hole complementing Isham’s signature style. The design of the Plethiros give a negative blade angle that is more ergonomic and efficient for general cutting tasks.
Handle: The handles are visually striking, with organic lines that Isham is known for executed in Black Hand Rubbed Brass for a nice heft in hand and a unique look. Stainless steel liners offers a solid foundation for durability with a simple and reliable liner lock mechanism delivering rock solid lock up and security during use. Ergonomic in design the handle provides a secure grip and comfort during extended cutting tasks. The handles are completed with black stainless steel hardware and a single barrel spacer for a minimalist open back construction and inline lanyard attachment.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up, stainless steel deep carry pocket clip.
Chinese Damascus: Damascus offers the performance of a modern steel while delivering a unique look from the pattern welded layers and acid etched finish. Often available in multiple patterns, Damascus gives a knife a striking and singular look. The core of this blade is 9Cr18MoV stainless steel hardened to around 60 HRC for solid cutting performance.
