This Chronic has a black G-10 handle with a carbon fiber overlay and a Damascus blade.
The CIVIVI Chronic is the kind of knife a distinguished man of high society would carry. It's got a very slender design that holds the seam of slacks quite nicely, and a slim hollow ground blade that isn't at all threatening, but can slice beautifully. Add a bit of sophistication to your collection today.Features:
The exact word I get when I show this excellent knife to my friends. It's just that good looking. And the Damascus blade is bling to a next level, but not over done with the carbon fiber scales. Use is a dream. And cutting edge is super sharp out of the box, but I have grown to expect nothing less from Civivi. (which is why I own 3 of their knives now)
Recently, Civivi has rolled out some special versions of their already high-quality offerings. These include upgraded models with Damascus blades and sexier handles. The Chronic is yet another example. Like Civivi’s more expensive sister company WE Knives, the Civivi Chronic arrives in a nice box with a padded zippered pouch. The handle material seems to be solid carbon fiber, with the textured and contoured edges showing the underlying carbon fiber construction. The action was butter smooth right out of the box, and a drop of Benchmade Blue Lube made the knife operate like silk. The blade drops closed with just a bit of shaking, but that’s reasonable considering the thickness of the blade stock and the 3.22 inch length. This is a gentleman’s knife, after all. The blade edge grind is virtually perfect, with a nicely symmetrical apex/point. The edge is shaving sharp, but just barely—in fairness, an excellent level of finish for the sub-$80.00 price tag. But the most interesting feature is the striking Damascus blade, difficult to match for beauty and cost in today’s market. When my friends see this knife, they definitely will want one.
It is perfect for a more subtle carry that will wow when brought out. This is my first Damascus blade and I am not disappointed. I will buy more Civivi's in the future.
Pros: small light easy to carry nice to look at looks way more expensive than it is easy to sharpen Cons: The handle feels weird cause it's straight and squared off, not a huge deal cause this isn't meant to be a hard use work knife. If you're not a construction worker or need a hard use/work knife then this is the knife for you,
Great little knife! Great looks, light, great flipping action and it's a treat to look at. Sharp out of the box. Nice little Gentlemen's knife for the money.
