CIVIVI Chronic Satin 9Cr18MoV Black G10 Liner Lock Flipper C917C
Building on the success of the popular Exarch front flipper, CIVIVI is back again with the Chronic, for a slim, performance orientated and budget-friendly gentleman's carry folder. It has the identical handle construction with stainless liners and straight, chamfered G10 scales while the blade has been modified to a hollow ground clip point with flipper deployment. This version comes with black G10 handle scales and a satin finished 9Cr18MoV stainless steel blade.
Brand new, direct from CIVIVI knives.
Blade: A simple, utilitarian clip point blade is made from 9Cr18MoV stainless steel with a fine satin finish. The nearly full height hollow grind offers excellent slicing performance and tapers the tip for piercing and fine work. Caged ceramic ball bearings at the pivot deliver fast and silky smooth flipper deployment.
Handle: Slim and sleek, the handle has deeply chamfered edges and squared corners giving the knife a "modern traditional" look and good in hand feel. Skeletonized stainless steel liners create a solid foundation for the scales with one forming the liner lock mechanism: simple, reliable and flawless in operation. A subtle cutout in the scale allows access to the scalloped surface for easy disengagement. The G10 partial back spacer has an extended end with lanyard hole cutout for added security and customization.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up, stainless steel deep carry pocket clip.
9Cr18MoV: Chinese equivalent of 440B. High corrosion resistance and decent toughness with finer grain due to composition enhancing performance.
