Customer Reviews

Very Pleased!
Larry T. on Jul 26, 2021

Never owned a button lock knife before, so wasn’t so sure how this purchase was gonna turn out. Well….with a short bit of practice, this blade has now become my latest every day carry! The action is a good way. The micarta is smooth yet just enough grip that’s it’s an ease to handle, and the blade treatment compliments the dark green making for one handsome tool! Sharp out of the box as usual, perfectly centered as usual, and the action….like I said..scary fast! Happy I own one thanks to BladeHQ….hope you get yours!

EDC Perfection
GRAYSON P. on Nov 19, 2021

Of course, it goes on sale directly after I order and offering a free Civivi hat with purchase. . . But besides those shenanigans, this knife is perfect. My EDCs have been 3" blades such as the Benchmade mini barrage and the Spyderco Para3 lw. So I thought maybe the 3.5inch blade would be too long. Turns out to be a great size and length. The button is a bit stiffer than I imagined. I must be accustomed to the button on my Boker Kalashnikov automatic as my backup beater knife. Pocket clip is outstanding. Colors are subtle and attractive. I paid $75 out the door for this. If I had paid $66 that would have made more sense. I also love the original elementum knife sticker that came in the case.

Very smoth. I like it.

Best bang for buck
John G. on Sep 13, 2021

Great action, great lock up, great finishing, great centering, great everything really. Cannot go wrong purchasing this considering the price point. I've bought Benchmades, Spydercos, and ZTs that didn't come this sharp out of the box. Hair whittling sharp with a quick strop on the ol' blue jeans, no joke. Only thing left to see is the edge retention with the 14c28n after some use.

Great knife for the money
JON P. on May 11, 2022

It is a little bigger than I expected but still small enough for EDC front pocket. The color is more grey than green but that is not bad, nice tone with flecks of tan. The grip is superb. Feels almost like canvas micarta. Between that and smooth. The action is so smooth it's amazing. Press the button and an easy flick to open. Close the same way but it locks open and closed tight. I do like the locked closed as I've had a couple come open in my pocket when pulling out. Edge was sharp but I gave it several pulls on my carbide and it's now razor. The color of the blade is nice and matches the handle. Blade profile is good. Nice backbone to point. No lanyard hole but I don't use one anyways. This knife appears to be a great value

My favorite knife I’ve ever had.
MARK M. on Jun 7, 2022

Before I knew anything about knives I’d just buy Spyderco. The last year I’ve studied and watched every YouTube video you could imagine and I wanted a new EDC. I looked at hundreds of knives from $20 to $80 and ultimately settled on this. I don’t know how a knife can be so perfect but this one is. The blade is razor sharp and the steel doesn’t corrode. The jimping up to is the the nicest I’ve had on almost any knife. There is not one thing I don’t like about it and I’m picky. Do yourself a favor and get one. The 14c28n steel is really quite amazing and tough. Miles better then D2 for an EDC. All Civivi knives are great and you can’t go wrong.

Its fun
Phil T. on Jul 23, 2021

More dark than dark green. No complaints.

Great edc blade
Eric E. on Aug 18, 2022

Absolutely love this knife. Smooth action and with a simple blade shape, it's great for pretty much everything. I've had this knife for about a month and it's my current favorite. That being said the button was very stiff when I got the knife. I took it apart and sanded the section where the button goes through the handle scales and liner and it's much smoother. The stop pins have started rattling as well which is annoying. Considering I got it on sale it's still a great knife all around.

Stiff button, smooth action
Jeremey J. on Sep 22, 2022

The knife was very fast and sharp out of the box. The button was very stiff. I did polish the button mating surfaces a bit and added a bit of oil to the bearings. The button action is better, and the speed of the action is just a bit slower now, more controlled. I think the oil helped to balance the action a bit. The micarta is very comfortable in the hands. The overall appearance of the knife is very handsome. I enjoy the look more than I thought I would. It came very well packaged in a box, with a Civivi branded zippered case with a microfiber cloth. Nice Touch Civivi! I read many reviews on this knife and watched several of the Blade HQ EDC knife discussions, and all gave high praises for this Knife. I believe the reviews to be a good representation of this knife, and I would recommend it now after owning it.

Pretty bad quality control
Nevan M. on Apr 14, 2022

The button on this knife got stuck the first time I pressed it and every time after. I was extremely disappointed, especially considering this is my favorite model Civivi makes. A button lock that doesn't lock or have smooth button travel is useless. Hopefully I can get a replacement and it will be better.

Good knife with some drawbacks
Michael H. on Feb 6, 2022

The civivi elementum button lock is a fantastic knife. I absolutely fell in love with the enlarged spin on the original elementum. After a week and a half of carrying it I’ve come to the conclusion it’s a decent knife. It holds an edge well, easy to sharpen, and carries well in the pocket. My only gripes are that it doesn’t have a flipper tab. It wouldn’t surprise me if the next addition to the elementum family would be this exact knife but with a flipper tab. Another issue is after about five days of carry and very light use jobs, the pins in the spine of knife and the pins that the blade lock against have developed a rattle. It’s very annoying. It doesn’t rattle in the pocket, but when I pick it up to use it or open it, the rattle becomes extremely obvious. If the pins didn’t rattle and it had a flipper tab I would buy it again in a heart beat. I could even live without the flipper tab, but that rattle is something I wouldn’t expect from civivi I’ve known their knives to have exceptional QC. This kind of thing is unacceptable coming from a company that usually buts out solid products. I hope this issue gets fixed.

Eric A. on Feb 11, 2022

I want to like Civivi because they look so good and have an attractive price point but this is my third and frankly am just not impressed. The push button on mine is very stiff and fails to lock (both open and closed) almost all the time. I've fiddled with oiling it and adjusting tension but it is really a two hand process if you want to be assured that it has locked when opening or closing. The longer size is headed in the right direction as I find the smaller Elementum a little too small. But they didn't make any other dimensional corrections other than adding length to the blade and handle so the ergonomics are off a little. Imagine making a stretch limo out of a Honda Civic. That's kind of what this is like. Looks great, neat idea, not really convinced that it is as good as the competition in this price range. As they say, meh.
