Straight out of the box, this thing has floored me.

Visually, it holds together extremely well. It's hard to really capture it in photos, but the lines of this knife are beautiful. The handle is wonderfully milled, the gold accents add elegance and character to the lively green of the handle.

The ergos are fantastic. Some knives are "eye-candy". This one is hand-candy. Feels wonderful in the hand - really nice texturing. Not a SINGLE rough edge on the knife except maybe near the lanyard hole, but that is really pushing it. The chamfering is smooth and the clip is not a hotspot.

The clip! It's pretty much perfect. Deep carry with just the right amount of tension - it fits snugly on your pocket, but disengages smoothly. There are MUCH more expensive knives with pocket clips that are far worse. Some that are way too tight, or that grab your pocket when you try to pull it out, or that ride too high, etc. No such problems here.

The blade is incredibly thin - easily the thinnest of any folder I own. This makes it a fearsome slicer. Given the tasks that most people, myself included, are likely to use a folding knife for, this is perfect. Very functional and contributes to the lightness of the knife overall.

The bevels were even out of the box and the knife was shaving sharp - impressive! The blade comes to a sharp point that will be useful for all sorts of piercing tasks.

My one complaint is that the jimping on the back of the blade should go a little farther up - it should be twice as long as it is on the current model. Not a big problem, in any case. The lines of the blade are simple, utilitarian, and elegant. I'm reminded very much of a "tooth" - something you might see in a predator;s mouth. Efficient without any frills.

The action is strong and decisive - the blade cracks open every time. The detent is excellent. The "talk" is smooth and strong as well. The centering is perfect - you could probably test that with a laser level. 0 blade play. Lockup is rock solid.

And the flipper tab didn't have a single rough edge! I could not say the same for my Ruike 801, another budget blade, or for my Kizer Eliminator 2, which retails for over $200! This shows great attention to detail.

In short, this knife is another game-changer. 9Cr performs as well or better than VG-10, which you will see in knives many times the cost! I expect the heat treat is excellent, given that it is done using WE manufacturing - the same reason the ergos, action, and hardware are all so good.

If you need a very practical blade that still retains beauty and elegance in its simplicity, you can't go wrong with the Civivi Praxis. It's not a small knife, but because it is so thin and light it carries very well, practically disappearing in the pocket.
