The CIVIVI CV-C801DS is a premium version of the Baklash that delivers the same practical, tactical and budget friendly platform with some stylish upgrades and the same top-notch fit and finish. This version comes with contoured, peel-ply Black G10 handle scales, stainless steel liners and a polished Chinese Damascus Steel blade.
Blade: The aggressive harpoon-style blade of the Baklash is a functional powerhouse outfitted with a deep hollow grind and executed in beautifully polished Chinese Damascus (9Cr18MoV stainless base steel with HRC near 60). The blade rides on a stainless steel ball bearing pivot for fast, smooth deployment via the index flipper tab. The hollow grind and harpoon swedge deliver powerful piercing and slicing performance for optimal tactical performance while the beautiful blade lends an element of style and class. The spine jimping on the thumb scoop and index finger choil pair well to offer excellent control for fine work.
Handle: Solid stainless steel liners support handsome, contoured black G10 handle scales for an ergonomic grip in the hand while the peel-ply texture offers plenty of traction for security. The gentle swell toward the pommel end delivers plenty of security and control for any task. The liner lock mechanism is smooth, secure and intuitive with jimping for reliable operation.
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.
