CIVIVI is back again with an excellent, high-performance, budget-friendly gentleman’s carry folder. Built with a slim, front flipper design, the Exarch is sure to rank high in your everyday carry thanks to smooth bearing action, fidget friendly front flipper and slicing, high hollow ground, drop point blade. This version comes with Carbon Fiber / Black G10 laminate handle scales, stainless steel liners and a San Mai Damascus Stainless Steel blade.
Brand new, direct from CIVIVI knives.
Blade: A simple, utilitarian drop point blade is made from striking San Mai Damascus, polished and etch to showcase the unique pattern welded layers. The nearly full height hollow grind offers excellent slicing performance and tapers the tip for piercing and fine work. Caged stainless steel bearings at the pivot deliver silky smooth deployment while the extended tang at the spine allows for fast or controlled deployment with jimping for solid traction.
Handle: Slim and sleek, the handle of the Exarch has deeply chamfered edges and squared corners giving the knife a “modern traditional” look and good in hand feel. Skeletonized stainless steel liners create a solid foundation for the scales with one forming the liner lock mechanism: simple, reliable and flawless in operation. A subtle cutout in the scale allows access to the scalloped surface for easy disengagement. Carbon fiber laminate elevates the look of this version, pairing well with the Damascus blade. The G10 partial back spacer has an extended end with lanyard hole cutout for added security and customization.
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.
