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 Golden Sandalwood handle scales supported by steel liners with 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. The polished and acid etched, pattern welded Damascus gives the blade a striking and visually appealing look and a rounded triangle blade hole lends to 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, and handsome Golden Sandalwood scales. Stainless steel liners offers a solid foundation for durability with a simple and reliable liner lock mechanism for security in use. Golden Sandalwood scales provide a warm in hand feel with plenty of figuring for aesthetic appeal. The ergonomic handle design provides plenty of security and comfort for extended use. The handles are completed with black stainless steel hardware and a single barrel spacer for a lightweight, 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.
