US vs China Competition

I don't own this specific knife, I have Cordovan and Backlash. And I think that American knife makers cannot beat this Chinese quality to price ratio. Labor is too expensive in the US. If the Chinese will keep focusing on the quality, they will beat us. I'd love to support the US manufacturers, but at the price of paying $150 for the knife of the quality equal to this?.. Something has to be done about this, or we'll lose. Not just in the knife industry.
Love it! New standard for the price point!

Civivi continues to impress me. I got the Backlash a few weeks ago and loved it. Couldnít believe how smooth the action was and really everything about it. So I ordered the Praxis with high expectations and they were exceeded. Perfect ergos, perfect blade centering, and the Praxis came even sharper than the Backlash. Iím talking ďhair poppingĒ sharp. This and a $100 plus Benchmade are the 2 sharpest knives out of the box Iíve ever received. Plus you still get a sweet zip up carry case and micro fiber cleaning cloth. Just AMAZING value at an almost unbelievable price. Also a BIG thank you to BHQ. I ordered it on Friday and received it on a Monday all the way from Utah to Arkansas. You guys are the best, I wouldnít buy a blade anywhere else!
Great knife!

So I've only had my praxis for about 13 hours but I've decided I had to share how much I love it. Although I don't have much experience with 9cr18mov I hear it's very similar to VG-10. which is pretty good for a $42 knife. Ergos and fit and finish are basically perfect (what I've started to expect from WE knives). I personally like the overall aesthetic of the knife, especially the blade, which is totally clean with the exception of a microscopic steel marking. In conclusion I say if your on the fence get down off it, come inside, get on BHQ and order this knife. P.S. Stay off the fence, the neighbors already think your crazy as they watch you constantly cut up cardboard and water bottles with your 30+ knives you try to convince your wife you need. Thx BHQ for making knife addiction a little easier to accept and be proud of ;)
Great knife for the price.

Boy you get a lot of knife for the price. The ergos are great. Centering is perfect and no blade play. The things cuts like a knife. And it feels so right. All around perfect knife for this price.
Is it good? Yes.

Pros: Excellent action both on deployment and closing. Comfortable handle, good weight, good size, good steel(relative to the cost), deep carry clip.

Cons: Lockbar access is a little cramped for me which makes closing the knife pretty uncomfortable, the finger choil is small enough that I don't feel safe using it with my sausage fingers.

But my biggest "con" isn't really the knife's fault it's an excellent knife I think most people would be happy with it as their daily carry but it's pushed by people as the greatest thing since sliced bread or the most exceptional budget knife ever and I dunno for me it's just another good knife. I think if you don't expect it to be anything special you'll be very happy with it.
Perfect!

This knife is Totally awesome. The blade thwacks open with authority and retracts beautifuly. The Blade came wicked sharp and slices like butter. However, perhaps the best thing about the praxis is actually the ergonomics, which are 10/10 for me. At this price I highly recommend!
Amazing

For $42.50 I donít think itís possible to get a better flipper. The action is great, the grip is nice and weighty, and the blade came razor sharp. My one complaint is that the steel seemed to dull pretty easily, but once again, for such a low price, itís hard to expect a premium steel.

This knife goes way beyond any close competitors, even at perhaps three times the price. I do like the colored scales, in person it adds greatly to the appearance.
The fit and finish are excellent. Action on this knife is stellar. Out of the box the blade was hair popping sharp.
Overall I would highly recommend Civivi as a must pick-up brand, any of their models. I will getting more of their line in the VERY near future. These guys are simply put... killing it!!
Awesomeness at a Budget!

I just got this knife from BladeHQ and canít be more impressed. This blade far surpasses the expectations I had for it. I own a few other knives in this price point and this Civivi hands down is the leader of the pack and will make it into my EDC rotation. If you are looking for a fantastic knife at a great price this should be on the top of your list. I even picked one up for my knife snob brother and he had nothing good things to say about it.
We have a winner

I got this knife a couple of months ago to be my work knife. upon opening the packaging and case, I realized how nice it really was. this is now my special occasion/ church knife due to its looks and clean appearance. It has kept its edge extremely well and I haven't sharpened it at all! well done Civivi

I just opened this knife and I am amazed. It came in perfect condition. Sharp as hell, centered, and it drops shut with no blade play. It a a full sized knife that fits my XL hands perfectly. I will be getting the other models as well. This is a well built knife worth every cent. I can't wait to do some steel testing. It seems to hold up reasonably well.
