Elementum. The word invokes a sense of the inevitability of nature—the consistent tides, tearing winds, or devouring fire; there is a certain balance that exists in nature. The CIVIVI Elementum is awesome in its own right, and succeeds in establishing a natural balance. Its elements come condensed, landing between too big and too small, high quality and affordability, plain and extravagant. The resulting CIVIVI knife is modest, ergonomic, and functional. Treat your pocket to one of the knife world's finest!
The damascus blade and knife overall looks incredible especially with the gold shred. However the only issue I'm experiencing is that the factory edge isn't the greatest.
Just received it in the mail today and it is everything I expected and more! The Damascus etching is very bold while accented by the shredded gold fibers in the scales. This has really “WOWED” me more than my Vagabond Badlands Damascus blade I purchased earlier. I know some question the quality of said blade but would you really use a beautiful Damascus blade as an EDC/workhorse blade? I’ll take it with me from time to time but definitely something I’ll hand down to my son down the road. So as some have labeled it “pocket candy” it does definitely fit the bill as I have other work horse blades that I have maybe more than one of anyway. I would definitely recommend buying one!
I love Civivi, have plenty of them and love them all generally. I bought this knife and looks wise, it's awesome. The carbon handle has depth to it and gold flakes make it pop. I actually really like the dama blade, it's not a polished looks which I love and it did come paper cutting sharp. My only issue was it is very hard to open, I have to put a lot of pressure on the flipper tab to get it open and the knife centering is a bit off. That's disappointing. I know it's not a super expensive knife but if I'm paying $100, I want it to be centered and easy to open...
The knife is beautiful and decently sharp but the quality of the blade isn't near as good as the other knives I've purchased through Blade HQ. If you are looking for pocket jewelry it fits the bill, but if you are looking for daily use out of your knife then I would go with the standard Civivi Elementum.
