The Riffle is another great EDC knife offering from CIVIVI. It has excellent opening action, durable blade steel, and offers plenty of quality grip. If you need something lightweight, hard-working, and affordable, update —or start—your collection with the CIVIVI Riffle.
Flipper knives are some of the best options for everyday carry thanks to their easy (and fun) operation.
I first bought the brown micarta version and while I liked the knife, the micarta was a little on the slick side. So I took a chance on the damascus/wood version and so glad I did. The knife is light, the wood has enough texture to give it some grip, and the blade looks sharp. I like the wider blade and the action is typical Civivi - great out of the box. Understand the micarta version isn't terrible, it's just the damascus/wood is a notch better. No hesitation to recommend this knife.
I bought this knife impulsively for a reason I don’t even remember, but I’m glad I did. A while ago, I also bought the Civivi Baklash and was very impressed with the quality and build. This knife is lighter than you would think, but it in a bad way, the action is smooth right out of the box and the wood and dark steel look beautiful next to each other. The deep carry pocket clip won’t tear up your pockets either and has a sleek design. This is actually the first knife I cut myself with thin the 3 years of knife collecting, I did it while closing it, my thumb made just enough of a movement for the blade to cut while I was closing it. Not a complaint, just showing how sharp it is out of the box too. Absolutely worthy the money on sale or not, great brand overall, I would highly recommend to someone looking for a budget folder and a more premium piece of cutlery.
The opening action of this Civivi Knife is unreal. It is EXTREMELY smooth right out of the box with no alterations required. The knife weighs in at 94 grams so it feels great clipped onto your pocket. The Damascus steel is a great conversation starter and looks AMAZING with the sandalwood handle. fantastic job!
So the blade isn’t even close to really being Damascus. It’s some kind of etching process. Which is really disappointing. Like serious regret disappointed. The knife actually is so light that it feels fake and the grind was/is (I still haven’t fixed it 100%) pretty sad. My wife thought the handle was plastic instead of wood… sigh. But the finish is there, and it flips alright. I wouldn’t say the lock-up was remarkable. Overall, even if this knife was $55.00 I’d be a little disappointed, but at 89... I probably should have returned it, but instead I sharpened it to get a working edge before really inspecting it. My bad. I’ll use it as a beater.
