Brand new, direct from CIVIVI Knives.
Blade: The utilitarian drop point blade is stylish and functional, executed in a black hand rubbed stainless Damascus blade with 9Cr18MoV stainless steel core for low maintenance performance with a stunning look. The blade rides on a caged ceramic ball bearing pivot for fast, smooth deployment via the index flipper tab or ambidextrous blade hole. A high height flat grind and full length swedge provide optimal cutting performance.
Handle: Black stainless liners support the rugged Micarta handle scales which have been chamfered for an ergonomic grip. The neutral handle design makes it comfortable in multiple grips utilizing the integrated strap cutter or the blade. The liner lock mechanism is smooth, secure and intuitive with scallops for reliable operation. The partial back spacer houses the strap cutter and is outfitted with a hardened glass breaker end for added utility.
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.
