CIVIVI has set their sights on making affordable, quality folding knives. The Praxis is one of those knives. It features contoured handle scales over a skeletonized stainless steel liner. The thought out, ergonomic handle and a jimped thumb rest provide a high performance grip for your toughest cutting jobs. There is a lanyard hole in the back spacer so you can tie on your favorite lanyard. To top all these great features off, there is a deep-carry pocket clip for easy, everyday carry.

I have no idea how WE is able to make these at this price but it actually looks and feels like I knife you'd pay $200+ for.
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!!
Super sharp and a smooth handle
A great knife at a outstanding price. The form,fit,function and action are unbelievable for a budget line. Chia has definitely up its game. American knife manufacturers should take notes. If you are hesitant about buying and knife from China, don’t be this brand great.as always great prices, CS and Shipping at BHQ Thanks guys
This knife is incredible
Amazing knife feels great great size razor sharp comes with a zipper case made very well love it
The CIVIVI Praxis, is a beautiful knife. This knife is very well made and I love the size vs the weight. I guess there are lighter knives but I have not ventured into the land of expensive knives yet. I absolutely love the thin blade for slicing.
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
This blade is great. Smooth action, great blade length, and solid construction. We Knives hit a homerun with their budget line.
This is a really good budget option that I would recommend to anyone. It's more comfortable in the hand than a Spyderco Tenacious, and there is no assist to break as in the Kershaw Cryo. On the matter of the assist, this knife doesn't have one, but as the detent is near perfect, it would be very hard to tell. The only gripes I have with this knife is that mine didn't come razor sharp, and the jimping on the flipper tab is a bit aggressive. I did a lot of research before purchasing this knife, and I can honestly say I do not regret it in the slightest.
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.
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 ;)
I just got this knife from BladeHQ and can’t 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.
This Praxis is perfect.
Civivi continues to impress me. I got the Backlash a few weeks ago and loved it. Couldn’t 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. I’m talking “hair popping” sharp. This and a $100 plus Benchmade are the 2 sharpest knives out of the box I’ve 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 wouldn’t buy a blade anywhere else!
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.
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!
An absolutely beautiful knife, high quality and flawless operating, I'll be buying another! Great customer service truly enjoy doing business here.
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.
For $42.50 I don’t think it’s 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, it’s hard to expect a premium steel.
Super sharp!! Feels great in hand!
I know at the 40 dollar price point, I don't really have the right to nitpick, but I'm going to anyway. No tip down. It is left hand reversible though. I would wager that there are more people who prefer tip down than there are people who left carry. I wish the liner lock was a little less stiff. Wish the jimping went a little bit further up on the blade. 42 bucks though, can't have everything. Great knife for the money, can't complain too much.
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.
The knife came fairly sharp but I did have to strop it to get it really sharp. Dont know how well the blade will hold its edge but I do like the feel in the hand and love the weight......great pocket knife. I removed the accursed clip, always do..and I hope that I have finally withdrawn from carrying my overly heavy 28 year old Buck 110..though that trusty old knife will always have a place in my heart..and it was made by humans in America!!
