Leonardo da Vinci stated that “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” and the CIVIVI C2005 Dogma is an embodiment of that principle. Built on a simple, reliable liner lock framework with smooth, bearing driven operation, an elegant clip point blade and stylish yet functional jigged handle scales this Dogma is true in its simple utility. This version comes with contoured and textured, bolstered Brass handle scales with a two-tone, polished oxide black finish, stainless steel liners and a black hand rubbed stainless Damascus steel blade.
Brand new, direct from CIVIVI Knives.
Blade: Classic and aggressively hollow ground, the clip point blade is made from slim yet robust 3 mm thick stainless Damascus steel. The high hollow grind deliver powerful slicing performance while the clip point excels at piercing and fine work with a generous choil for added control. Caged Ceramic Ball Bearings at the pivot deliver fast and smooth operation with easy flipper deployment. An eye hole cutout in the blade can be used for slow, controlled opening and delivers visual style along with the striking yet subdued hand rubbed black finish.
Handle: Skeletonized stainless steel liners support the hefty and ergonomic contoured Brass handle scales which have been milled with a faux bolster and jigged texture for a timeless look and enhanced traction in hand. The scales have been given a black oxide patina and then strategically polished to bring out the jigged texture and bolstered look. One liner forms the liner lock mechanism offering smooth, reliable operation and solid lockup with scallops to aid in disengagement. Exposed liners at the pommel are milled with a generous hole for lanyard attachment while a partial G10 back spacer and black Torx hardware complete the construction.
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.
