The Ki-V from CIVIVI is designed and inspired by Ostap Hel. He scores points for each new compact knife he designs because they're easy to carry, use, and have such a sleek design for being so small. These models have a slip joint mechanism and a pocket clip for tip-up carry. Dual jimping is accented on the spine of the blade as well as the underside of the blade so there's no slipping when in use.

It’s tiny enough that for a city slicker like me it doesn’t feel weird to carry, fits neatly in that little inner right pocket on your jeans. The natural G10 looks awesome and the front flip is fun to fidget with. It is tricky to snap open one handed but doable, might be easier as it breaks in a bit. All in all I’m very happy with it! 5 stars!
This is a pretty good little knife. It's legal almost anywhere, it's small, so it's easy to carry. The blade shape is a little odd, so cutting can feel weird. Once you get the hang of it, the front flipper works well. All in all, it's an odd, but cute little knife.
I love front flippers and smaller knives so this was an easy choice. It has a nice design and is perfect for opening boxes, etc. The natural colored scales look cool, too.
