CIVIVI Mini Mastodon C2011B Red G10 9Cr18MoV Stainless Steel Liner Lock Flipper
The CIVIVI C2011 Mini Mastodon rides the wave of the popular cleaver blade profile offered in the Bullmastiff models. The now extinct Mastodon was a long tusked mammal that could weigh up to 12 tons and would have been a force to be reckoned with. The Mini Mastodon offers a stout, cleaver-like blade, reliable liner lock construction and intuitive flipper deployment that makes a formidable EDC knife worth of the name. This version comes with contoured, peel-ply Red G10 handle scales, gray stainless steel liners and a stonewashed 9Cr18MoV Stainless Steel blade on phosphor bronze washers.
Brand new, direct from CIVIVI Knives.
Blade: A stout, 3 mm thick cleaver blade is plenty tough for daily use while having a tall blade and full flat grind for excellent slicing performance. For piercing and detail work the tip comes to a fine point and a large index finger choil enhances control. The heavy stonewashed finish hides wear from use while a hole at the top of the blade gives a classic cleaver style. Bronze washers at the pivot deliver reliable smooth operation with easy flipper deployment.
Handle: Skeletonized stainless steel liners support the contoured and peel-ply textured G10 handle scales in a simple and ergonomic design. One liner forms the liner lock mechanism for smooth, reliable operation and solid lockup with scallops to aid in disengagement. A partial back spacer, generous lanyard hole and stainless steel Torx hardware complete the construction.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up, stainless steel deep carry pocket clip.
9Cr18MoV Stainless Steel: Chinese equivalent of 440B. High corrosion resistance and decent toughness with finer grain due to composition enhancing performance.
