Great value for the right user.

First and foremost, you're getting a lot for your money here. $50-60 gets you that amazing WE Knife Co. quality control. You're getting a knife with AMAZING action, especially at that price point. You're getting a knife that has a rock solid lock up with zero blade play. You get the taco case, the m...

I wanted a Bugout. I got to try one and felt it deform in my hand. It was weird to press the scales together until they touched. I didn't care for it personally. The Civivi Elementum is a solid small knife, the Spyderco Tenacious is a nice bigger one. I have a Kershaw Launch 4 and the blade is small...

I liked the Civivi Elementum so much at $50 for d2, that I purchased one in s35vn and bought titanium scales for it for under $150. I have handled the Rat and it is a good knife but for my money, you can't beat the action on a Civivi. HOWEVER, if I needed a loaner knife or used the shit out of my kn...

I have nicer knives, but I'm really loving my Civivi Elementum right now. I didn't expect to like it as much as I do.

‘Flipping Out’ Over This One

Saw some very positive YouTube videos on this bad boy and decided to give it a go as an EDC knife upgrade, and it has not disappointed. There’s decent competition at the 50 dollar price point for knives at the moment, with some companies packing a ton of features or extras in to make their products ...

For me they weren't. I've gotten more use out of a Civivi Elementum (about Rat II size) and a Spyderco Tenacious (Rat I size). It's a good knife but there are better.

Latest 2021 Civivi Model Surfaces with two Blade Shapes |

By this point, the Civivi catalog is at least as varied as that of its parent company, We Knife Co.; fixed blades, folders, different sizes and lock mechanisms – pretty much every corner of the knife market is touched on at this point. In either iteration, Brazen comes spec’d for the good old fashioned everyday carry category. Its versatile application centers around a 3.46-inch blade; users can pick between a drop point or an American tanto shape, prioritizing either slicing or piercing ability according to their needs.

I really really love my Civivi Elementum. Has an amazing action, really sleek and comfortable to carry, and is really durable. Perfect EDC for $50 budget imo

I bought two Elementum knives. I returned both. The first one was not opening fully each time I flipped it. I had to use all my strength to flip. Otherwise, the knife opened half way only. Perhaps this is normal for non-spring assisted knives. But I did not like it. Kind of dangerous if the knife do...
