The Hooligan C913DS-1 from CIVIVI knives is a rugged, compact, everyday carry folder that delivers exceptional performance with a hollow ground, drop point blade with subtle harpoon swedge and ergonomic G10 handles. This version comes with Black G10 handle scales over black stainless steel liners and a San Mai Damascus Stainless Steel blade.
Blade: A simple drop point blade is embellished with a subtle harpoon top swedge that tapers the 3 mm blade to a fine, piercing tip. A striking San Mai Damascus, stainless steel blade rides on robust phosphor bronze washers and deploys via the dual thumb studs. Hollow ground, the tall blade offers a good balance of durability and slicing performance with belly from tip to choil. A generous, jimped thumb ramp offers excellent control for fine or heavy work.
Handle: Black stainless steel liners support rugged, chamfered G10 handle scales which offer durability, weather resistance and good traction when wet. Ergonomic in design, the handles are comfortable and secure in the hand thanks to subtle finger grooves. The stainless steel liner lock is smooth, simple and reliable in operation with jimping for enhanced traction. Open back construction makes for easy cleaning and maintenance while a generous hole is provided for lanyard attachment. All black hardware rounds out this elegant workhorse folder.
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.
