Civivi Elementum Knife Review

Civivi Elementum Knife is remarkable since its beginning. Before writing Civivi Elementum Review, I want you to know that it’s been launched in November 2018 and its now almost 2 years old. As I proceed with Civivi Elementum Review, you will know why it’s among the very best pocket knives of CIVIVI. As you will see is outfitted with D2 Steel blade having satin finish and Linerlock knife.

Just like other knives, I always review a knife once I’m sure about its quality and usage. It’s not just as impressive as WE Knife 608 or impressive design in terms of looks when compared to WE Knives Scoppio 923 but, it’s still a best seller till date. My Curiosity grew when I saw so many reviews and people putting up pictures on different social media platforms about their Civivi Elementum. So, here we are with Civivi Elementum Review.

Civivi Knives

If you are totally newbie then this part is for you. Actually Civivi Knives is a subsidiary of WE Knife Co, a Chinese knife manufacturing company who used to produce knives for different knife brands in USA and all over the world. More than a decade ago, they started with their own Brand called WE Knives and entered the USA Market with top quality and expensive yet Chinese made knives.

Civivi Knives is also their brand or a subsidiary and to me, correct me if I’m wrong? Civivi Knives offers knives to mid-tier buyers where as WE Knives has most of the knives which are little higher end not only in terms of prices but also blade steel being used.

Yet, the Quality checks for WE Knives and CIVIVI is done by same team and manufacturing is also done at the same location, therefore, there is no compromise on its quality. Even you can claim lifetime warranty on products unless you void their usage terms.

Last but not least, I like to specify a recent happening where someone posted on WE Knives Group at Facebook about broken pocket clip and they sent him another pocket clip free of any charges he just have to pay delivery charges which are minimal. I am sharing the Link as under.

First Impression of Civivi Elementum Knife

Actually, it’s hard to find this Elementum Knife among other competing knives having almost same price range but once you read my review, you will see, it’s worth the bucks spent. Civivi Elementum comes in different material, color and finish combinations. So, you will find so many options to choose as per your requirement.

First Impression of Civivi Elementum Knife

As Pocket Knives are not just everyday carry knives or pocket knives but they also define the user’s personality. Secondly, it’s manufactured by WE Knives as said earlier and the attention to detail and quality of production is superb. Third yet most crazy part of this knife is the customization factor. Yes, it is easily customizable by making new scales, blade can be acid washed and much more, giving a knife collector a true one of a kind look they want for their Civivi Elementum.

Civivi Elementum first impression is not impressive as far as I felt. The simple lines and more simpler design is quite boring but the unattractive yet simple look never the less adds CLASS to knife and make it universal to carry. But once you use it, you will feel the styling of its blade, shape of handle, its profiling and above all the grind work all in synergy and complimenting each other. Thus, providing modern, handy light look and feel to knife.

Civivi Elementum Feel In hand

Well, once you hold Elementum knife C907M in your hand, you will feel like it’s made for your hand as far as the grip and initial feeling you get. The best part is knife making expertise of WE Knives and Design Team of Civivi Knives which designed a knife excellent for all types of hands and it has right proportions making it superb pocket knife.

civivi elementum, civivi elementum knife, elementum knife, elementum, Civivi Elementum Knife Review,
Civivi Elementum Review feel in hand

The grip jimping on the spine and finger choil provides extra sturdiness when using to cut something little hard for extra pressure. There are no hotspots if used by right handed people but for lefty like me you may find a hotspot near pocket clip given it thin but still. Similarly, one finds hotspots during heavier tasks but those are not that bad, neither negligible.

Reviewing blade of Civivi Elementum

D2 blade is becoming popular and it has HRC rating 59 to 61 almost same as of CPM S35VN like you find in WE Knife 610 “Battleship” which is selling online for around $200 plus. Therefore, it’s a much wiser choice by Civivi Knives Design team to come up with material having almost same HRC ratings and it’s cheaper to.

Further, the drop point shape of knife is great for slicing and dices and it’s done with ease and precision. The Edge retention of D2 is great because of its high HRC ratings as mentioned earlier but sharpening the edge is little tough (time consuming) as compared wot CPM S35VN Steel.

Civivi Elementum Knife Slicing Onions

Elementum Knife has drop point blade and with which I cut few wires, some bread, paper and my parcels and I have no problem with it during my use so far.  The hardness of blade compliments its sharpness and everything which I cut had a laser precision and it’s as easy as cutting butter. The control and performance of this knife is great.

Deployment of Civivi Elementum

It’s a flipper no doubt, and the flipping action is smooth to. The Caged Steel Ball Bearing with balanced blade weight and the flipper tab makes the deploying of this knife smooth, easy and fast. During deployment the Linerlock system of this knife keeps the Civivi Elementum blade in place. Thus, the opening and closing of this knife is great.

Civivi Elementum Pocket Clip Review

The Pocket clip of Civivi Elementum is made from Stainless Steel and frankly it’s not great at all. Firstly, it creates hotspot in hand when gripped and it’s not good for any every day carry knife. WE all know that, pocket clips are the making or breaking factors because you cannot keep a knife in your hand, one needs to put it in pocket and that is why the second most disappointed factor I found is again its thickness, which doesn’t hold the knife securely in a pocket.

Overall the knife is great but it seriously lacks in the pocket clip area. I hope with more new models are expected in future they may change the pocket clip but all I can say so far the pocket clip does not match the rest.

Conclusion Civivi Elementum Review

Well, Civivi Elementum is incredible in terms of features and utility it offers with respect to price being offered. The D2 Steel is not stainless and it also consumes more time sharpening and as for pocket clip it’s a deep slide pocket clip. But simply saying I repeat it’s a great knife to have as EDC and its well designed by Civivi Design Team of We Knife Co.

Just because it’s a great knife people are still buying it till date and above all mostly Knife collectors because of its style, fit in hand, deployment and options to select different materials mentioned above in Variants.

Honestly, it’s worth the price you pay. Spending between 50 to 89 bucks is nothing in comparison to the product being offered. Frankly, you will not be disappointed ever on your purchase but you may regret if any of the variants you are thinking of buying gets out of stock. So buy Soon.

We Knife Scoppio

WE Knives Scoppio 923

We Knives Scoppio launched in December of 2019 designed by Toni N Tietzel.   Word “Scoppio” is a new word for me and I didn’t understood its meaning. So I google it and it turns out that it’s an Italian word means Explosion. (Screen Shot) as Under:

The We Knife Scoppio, I’ll be talking here  in this review is with blue handle which is 0.51 inches thick or 13mm with total weight of 131 grams meaning this WE Scoppio is lighter than two 70 gram papers.

WE Knife Scoppio 923A Review, WE Knife Scoppio 923A, WE Knife Scoppio
WE Knife Scoppio 923A Review

The blade material of this knife is CPM 20CV stainless steel and as you all know it’s a premium quality steel. As per chemical composition between Bohler M390 steel is almost alike but there is a difference between manufacturing process and CPM 20 CV is made in America.

Summing it up, WE Knife Scoppio is designed by German designer, it’s named in Italian language, the knife blade is made in USA and last, it’s assembled in Yang Jing China. Actually, Yang Jing, China is a home of knife makers just like Solingen in Germany and Maniago in Italy.

Secondly, We Knives is in Knife businesses for more than 20 plus years and it also has another brand o sister company CIVIVI Knives which is also global now.

WE Knives Scoppio Review

As per our standard review format, after discussing knives’ brand, its background and above all technical specifications we talk about blade of the knife then blade shape,  knife handle materials and shape which are vital to discuss and above all its locking and deployment system. Thus, as we have wrote previously about WE Knife 610 which is also a Framelock knife from WE Knives. As, this review is for WE Knives Scoppio which is a drop point blade and yes it’s a pocket knife as well.

We Knife Scoppio

Blade of WE Knife Scoppio

As it’s a drop point blade and its ideal for most tasks or utility tasks one can perform. The Blade material is CPM-20CV which is a premium stainless steel material CPM-20CV. WE Knife Scoppio 923 has HRC (Rockwell Hardness) rating 59 between 61 which is great which is considered very high in terms of edge retention meaning, the blade edges with such steel last longer before they need to sharpen again. But one thing one should also consider the harder the more brittle it gets. Given its hard but it slammed against other much harder materials you may find the edge to chip to.

Shape of Blade

As said earlier it’s a drop point blade meaning a big belly but the unconventional shape of Scoppio drop point belly is of my interest than others. Like the spin of the blade is not straight neither gentle not seen in most knives. From its top to bottom, the shape of curves constantly changes and so as the blade thickness. 

Compound Grind of WE Knife Scoppio

It’s a compound grind knife and this unique compound grind doesn’t seem to impede cutting tasks but the shape of the blade itself. Like if you are slicing any fruit, the thickness of the blade works like a wedge to slice open. It’s superb for all types of food slicing jobs with ease wherever you go, you do not need any other knife to do these jobs.

Handle of WE Knives Scoppio

It’s a premium knife and I have no doubt in saying it with 6AL4V titanium handle apart from its blade is also of importance to discuss here in this review. For example, there are no screws visible on handle, then “WE logo” hides Scoppio’s pivot and above all the handle scales are flush with “WE Knife Co.’s Logo” and you can even check it as there is no wobble when placed on perfect flat table.

WE Knife Scoppio 923A Review, WE Knife Scoppio 923A, WE Knife Scoppio
WE Knife Scoppio closed

There are also perfect angle cuts on the handle as well, making it a genuine marksmen knife and Toni N Tietzel’s design esthetic is quite apparent and worth mentioning. The finish and precision used in making such knife handles is great and I really liked the Chinese manufacturing quality in it too.

Pocket Clip of We Knife Scoppio

The pocket clip of we knives Scoppio is placed in a predictable curve, it’s nicely done in synergy to handle curves as a whole. I think the inspiration of Toni N Tietzel is on geometrical lines as I see the blade and then its handle and now the same symmetry in placing of its pocket clip.

WE Knife Scoppio 923A Review, WE Knife Scoppio 923A, WE Knife Scoppio
WE Knife Scoppio 923A Review

Ergonomics of WE Knives Scoppio

Well, the ergonomics in handle of this knife are not good but excellent. The shape, height and placement of pocket clip does not create any problem while holding a knife, offering a smooth and comfortable grip. You will not find any hotspots while holding a knife but there is a downside of using titanium handle as it gets slippery when hand get wet but, as most pocket knives are used its optimal.

Thus, it’s hard to use a knife with wet hands because of titanium handle and no scales on it but with rest assured it feels great in hand and it performs well too.

Deployment of WE Knife Scoppio

The flipping action of this knife is smooth and balanced the small flipper tab has a tiny jimping on the front to give little traction. The opening sound or deployment of this knife is noisy as it makes a sound when opened and it may be due to its ceramic bearings.

The locking mechanisms is again makes a clack sound when locked. The sound and such a tight locking mechanism is because of blade mounted stop pin. The main purpose of this stop pin is to prevent the blade from opening too far and keeping the blade in perfect position too. Secondly, if stop pin is placed on the blade it even helps side to side blade wiggle. Normally the stop pin is attached with handle of the knives but in case of WE Scoppio is on the blade.

Conclusion

I find it little hard to open and close not as happy with its deployment and later locking it. But it’s a perfect knife and with its ultra-light blade, superb finish and quality of materials being used its worth every cent being paid for it. Again it’s not for left hand users, so you better know if you are left hander.

Some say or even I have problem when I used in Hot Summers this year, the sweat from my hands make it more slippery than ever, but in general it’s a great knife. The contours or curves on blade, and construction of Knife handle and pocket clip all are in synergy and offer a great comfortable grip. The cutting experience with them is also great.

Now the question comes from where to buy We Knife Scoppio for Sale?

Before you read more about WE Knife 610 review, we want to tell you that inside the well-presented deal you will find a nice soft case, total with microfiber cloth, and specialized driver tool attached to a crucial ring. This knife was smooth, raw searching in a commercial type method, however also fine-tuned and contemporary in general look. Stick around; I think you’re actually going to like this one

Background

WE Knife Co. is not your normal new Chinese knife producer. They did not pop-up overnight to attempt taking advantage of the current success of other Chinese production knives either– Quite the opposite really. WE Knife Co. is one of the oldest and most successful knife and tool firms in China. We Knives have actually been around for well over 15 years, and have actually gained praise and regard within the Chinese community from which they have mainly offered item geographically. The point is, these guys understand how to make mid to high-end production knives, and have been improving and repeating on the process for several years now.

To avoid any doubts about WE Knife Co. is a business operating out of, and production from China. WE Knives are not an inexpensive knock-off brand name, and they produce some of the greatest quality knives that come out of the Pacific Rim entirely. Most significantly, they have been around in the USA for a decade now, and from the appearance of it, they are going to be extremely successful, if the pieces we have are any sign of their mean quality and style levels just. Without further more discussion, let’s get started with the Review of We Knife 610.

Technical Specifications of We Knives We Knife 610

What to expect from this knife and what not, you should always consider the technical specifications of a Knife. I always start my product reviews with technical specifications. Thus, the technical specifications of we knife 610 are as under:

  • Overall Length: 8.86” (225mm)
  • Blade Length: 3.86” (98mm)
  • Blade Thickness: 0.16” (4mm)
  • Blade Material: CPM-S35VN
  • Blade Hardness: HRC59-61
  • Blade Grind: Flat
  • Handle Length: 5” (127mm)
  • Handle Overall Thickness: 0.54” (13.6mm)
  • Handle Material: 6AL4V Titanium
  • Clip Material: 6AL4V Titanium
  • Back Spacer Material: 6AL4V Titanium
  • Screws Material: 6AL4V Titanium
  • Pivot Cap: 6AL4V Titanium
  • Washers Material: Ceramic Ball Bearing
  • Weight: 120g / 4.27oz
  • Lock Type: Frame Lock
  • Designed By We Knife Team

First Impressions

Some items require time to get utilized to. The WE Knife 610 was not one of those kinds of products for us. From the moment we took a look at the design 610 we understood it was right in our wheelhouse. The all titanium (6AL4V) frame lock style, custom titanium pivot and screw hardware all looked fantastic together.

WE Knives WE Knife 610 Battleship Review, WE Knives WE Knife 610 Battleship, WE Knives WE Knife 610, WE Knives WE Knife 610, WE Knife 610
We Knives We 610 BattleShip closed Review

Between the small elaborate visual aspects such as the gold anodized hardware, the ornamental however beneficial jimping on the scales, and the tumbled raw titanium manage scales, this knife looked actually striking in an industrial method. I would not presume as to call this steampunk, but if some more components had actually been included, it may have had the ability to become part of that grouping also … For us it is an excellent thing they kept it basic. The understated nature of the 610 makes it all the more enticing in our eyes.

We held the knife, concentrating on the wedged shape that pertains to a minor point at the rear of the knife. It felt not heavy but significant. We truly liked the look of the custom-made hardware; a truly nice touch for a knife, but also one that with other knives had actually shown to be more of a hassle than a real advantage. Unlike some other brand names, WE Knife Co. in fact supplied the tool that mated with the hardware to be able to service it. It is safe to state that from our initial impressions, we felt very eager to run this knife through daily carry and perhaps some extra-special tasks as well.

There is another WE Knife Co’s framelock knife which was released a year ago named WE Knife Scoppio 923, we have reviewed it too, you may find it interesting.

We Knife 610’s Feel In-Hand

As per its technical specifications, you know its heavier knife but it’s quite right to mention that it’s heavy yet once, it’s in your hand you will definitely say it’s an extremely well weighted.  As you have read in its specifications that, it got titanium handle with 6AL4V along with same material for its Pocket clip and above all, Pivot Cap, its screws and even back spacer all are made with 64L4V Titanium, therefore it brings some extra weight but believe its 120 grams is nothing as compared to Pocket Knives we use to carry 30 years ago.

WE Knife Co.’s We Knife 610 Handle

The We Knives’ We 610 knife has a titanium handle and the titanium scales felt comfortable to hands as well. As per my hand size, it felt the handle groves are not perfect fit with my hands, do let me know in your comments do you have the same issue or is it me being Alien here :P.

Actually the simple straight handle or handle scales are used for universal grip styles of knives so one can use the knife in any grip one pleases and same goes for this WE Knife 610 as well. It allows its users to use it with multiple grips and there is no issue whatever grip style one uses as per the requirement.

Blade of WE Knife 610

As you have seen the picture there is no doubt that it’s a Tanto Blade knife which is extremely sharp and having CPM S35 VN stainless steel makes its performance remarkable. One more thing you will notice that the blade is perfectly centered and the lock is smooth too, this defines the quality and person of knife making by We Knives Company. They are so good in their designs that their brand Civivi Knives is also popular and both are out performed by Reate Knives too which are also Chinese knives brand.

WE Knives WE Knife 610 Battleship Review, WE Knives WE Knife 610 Battleship, WE Knives WE Knife 610, WE Knives WE Knife 610, WE Knife 610
We Knives We 610 BattleShip Blade

The blade of We Knife 610 has flat grind, commonly done on Tanto shaped blades and it comes in two different blade finishes only as per my information which are Satin Finish and Black finish. Given the blade finish and shape, it’s definitely an appealing knife for Tanto lovers.

Real World Testing

Well, every Pocket Knife I have under review is always with me for few days at least a week and the tasks I need to get done with a pocket knife are done that way. But like survival knives for example Fallkniven knives. I have done series of tests on Fallkniven s1x and even on Fallkniven f1z just to check how good they are. But in case of pocket knives, they are much different in their usage. As the concept of EDC (every day carry) Knife or pocket knife is just a functional sharp knife for small tasks like cutting bags, opening cartons, slicing bread and fruits.

Using We Knife 610 in daily routine

The best thing i felt about its titanium pocket. The look and feel of We Knife 610’s pocket clip is just like of a premium pen and you feel a difference to while putting it in your pocket and taking it out. But you need to hands to put it in your pocket. The retention of WE Knife 610 in (shirt, pent or jeans) is strong and firm and no incident happened where it got pulled accidentally out of my any pocket where it placed it.

WE Knives WE Knife 610 Battleship Review, WE Knives WE Knife 610 Battleship, WE Knives WE Knife 610, WE Knives WE Knife 610, WE Knife 610
Close up of We Knives We 610 BattleShip pocket clip

 Being a left hander, I personally think it’s not a right pocket knife for me, as its deployment is best with right handed people and there are no options like we see in Kershaw Pocket knives.  

For those new to our review format, we evaluate folding knives over the course of a minimum of one week (usually), and in the majority of cases two weeks. Over that length of time we get a feel for the knife, and bring it every day as either a main or backup EDC pocket knife. When we feel so inspired, we use it in typical everyday scenarios as well as shot to put it through some stress-based testing.

This knife got one full week pocket EDC bring time, and was used as the primary EDC carry during that period. This time permits us to live with the knife and get a real concept of how useful, functional, and functional the knife is under real life, daily conditions that any of us may face.

Cutting with WE Knife 610

As it’s a Tanto knife blade and it’s also referred to as chisel type blade and its great as tactical usage as well. Therefore cutting tyres and piercing through cartons is a great experience with this knife.

The blade of knife is CPM S35 VN having a really good hardness and definitely the blade retention or sharpness is also great. While cutting through old bike tyres tubes and cartons, the knife didn’t gave me any trouble and later with paper cutting test, it was still sharp.

The knife has titanium handle and as winter is approaching, therefore, you can use gloves and use it as well, I just check it in my hands with gloves on to have feel of grip and I rate 4.5 out of 5. As the pocket clip is only for right handed people.

Last, one of my friends is a hiker and we checked it on his rope as well. And while preparing food during our Hike trail, I cut different vegetables and few fruits with it as well. It’s easy to clean and dry.

Conclusion We Knife 610 Review

Now, it’s time to finalize and evaluate WE Knife 610. Just like We Knife 608 you will love the level of quality and machining you find on this knife. The knife has impressive quality, perfect deployment, made as perfect EDC, comfortable in hand, superb pocket clip and above all We Knife 610 got striking style.

As, it’s an old model now, many of its variants have been discontinued and few are even Out of Stock these days at different Knife Online Stores. But you will definitively find them at cheaper price on the link I’m pasting down under.

It’s up to you which one you like the best but honestly, to me, I liked all the variants as they all have different prices. I have also compared the Specifications of all We Knife 608 Series Models for your ease. One thing you will notice in all models is the style of handle, its same, a titanium handle perfectly milled along with finger groves for hand sizes making the handling quite easy.

We Knife Co or We Knives Company

For those, who are new to knives or never heard of this model and want to know more about this company, so you guys should know that WE Knives is  a well-established Chinese Manufacturer and been working in industry for many years now. Even it has more than a decade while it’s selling its knife range in United States.

Once again, it’s worth repeating the simple fact that WE Knife Co. is a reputable company from China, having been around ever since late 1999.

 “They are not new to the knife and tool making game, but they are relative newcomers to the North American market.” By Matt Davidsonà

I don’t know why he always discourages, We Knives by saying it’s a new company, for me and to many others, its common belief if you are doing business for at least 10 years in certain market you are no longer new. And yes this is the actual case with We Knives.

Having seen other WE Knife offerings in the previous year, it is clear to say that they are amongst the preeminent production knife producers offered today. Sure, they are very competitive amongst their Chinese equivalents, but they are likewise very competitive with United States manufacturers such as Kershaw / Zero Tolerance, Spyderco, Bench made, and the like.

The first review we are doing is WE Knife 608 and after that We Knife 610 in few days.

First Impressions of We Knife 608

As said earlier, covering all variants of We Knife 608 series is difficult and for this reason we have selected We Knife 608I which is in blue- black- gold color scheme. Very first thing that struck me was that the 608I remained in plain contrast to the model 610H we will be evaluating in future. Whereas the WE Knife 610 have practical and is more robust and industrial in style.

The We Knife 608 was a flashier looking knife with bigger overall measurements, and strong colors on the 608 ‘I’ variation we had. The style hints and colors actually popped out at us initially. It has a really striking appearance because of its gold anodized accents and matted blue anodization. You will definitely fall in love with it. As most are out of stock and almost 9 of them have been discontinued. It gives us signal because of its failure as well.

Discontinued WE Knife 608 Knives

Following is a list of We Knives 608 series which are discontinued as on date and as per our information. Yes, being a knife collector you can buy from other collectors online from different websites or at auctions.

  1. WE Knife 608 A
  2. WE Knife 608 C
  3. WE Knife 608 D
  4. WE Knife 608 E
  5. WE Knife 608 J
  6. WE Knife 608 M
  7. WE Knife 608 N
  8. WE Knife 608 P
  9. WE Knife 608 S

As said before, a proper milled line, sweeping through middle of show side scale is adorned with golden color anodization and the three (3) cutout holes for its cosmetic look. These lines are machined milled purposely to decorate both sides of knife handle scales not only for visual appeal but also for tactical purpose as well. It reminded me a little some of the Reate knives that employ similar machining and design practices and they are good too.

The black Tanto blade was tucked away, though we had the ability to see the black DLC coating that is not usually our cup of tea. It is most likely that the finishing is not in fact DLC (diamond-like carbon) at all, but rather PVD (physical vapor deposition), or something similar. We immediately questioned how the covering would hold up.

WE Knives WE 608I Tanto blade

As it uses some excellent CPM-S35VN steel, we always tend to wonder why a finish treatment such as this is required at all. I think some individuals simply like the look. In either case the knife looked really good and felt actually good with excellent contours to the hand. I will discuss more about its feel in hand, real world testing but first, we have to see, what its technical specifications are.

Technical Specifications of We Knife 608

According to We Knives, please find following technical specifications and I really give them the importance because they not only tell you, what the product is but also, what to expect from it and what not.

  • Overall Length: 8.94”(227mm)
  • Blade Length: 3.94”(100mm)
  • Blade Thickness: 0.16”(4mm)
  • Blade Material: CPM-S35VN
  • Blade Hardness: HRC59-61
  • Blade Grind: Flat
  • Handle Length: 5”(127mm)
  • Handle Overall Thickness: 0.57”(14.5mm)
  • Handle Material: 6AL4V Titanium
  • Clip Material: 6AL4V Titanium

  • Washers Material: Ceramic Ball Bearing
  • Weight: 150g / 5.3oz
  • Lock Type: Frame Lock

Feel In-Hand

The WE 608 felt strong, actually solid feeling once it’s in your hand. It is absolutely aimed squarely at those who take pleasure in a bigger knife with a Tanto blade. We held the knife in our ideal hand and felt that it was extremely comfortable in a standard grip position. Then, we flipped open the knife blade for the very first time.  WE Knives’ 608 is a decently sized 4 inch blade with ceramic ball bearing pivot making its flipper exceptionally smooth just like butter you can say.

However, we currently mention that Tanto blades and DLC type finishes are not our bag? Appeal is indeed in the eye of the beholder, but to us this blade was not the most beautiful thing we have ever seen. We liked the simple style of the 610’s blade shape, the 608 was extremely various. This blade was an extremely bold looking Tanto with a big suggestion that would likely show to serve well as a tough usage EDC.

When it comes to your hand you will feel the jimping on the blade, and it will feel pretty great. It was a nice knife in hand. The frame-lock closing system was well carried out and extremely comfy to use.

The pocket clip was another fascinating style choice and we’ve seen this clip style on a couple of other WE Knife offerings before. It is very thin in appearance as it utilizes 3-D milled titanium hardware to carry out a truly unique and well considered style. It felt near to the deal with scale, and did not trouble the hand when holding it strongly.

WE Knives WE 608I pocket clip

We must also state that the feel in hand was not only strong, but safe. Sure, the lockup was ideal at about 25 percent, and the blade focusing was spot-on too. We are seeing that becoming a requirement among these leading tier production knife makers. What we do not always get regularly is an excellent feel in hand, and a safe and secure grip that does not feel as if it will slip away when in usage.

The WE Knife 608 felt very well contoured to the hand, and used a tactile grip thanks to the machine made titanium lines/grooves so well machined. Even still, the knife was well sorted and smooth to the touch without any rough edges or abrasive locations at all.

As for us, we felt the jimping on the blade, and it felt pretty great. What we do not constantly get consistently is a good feel in hand, and a safe and secure grip that does not feel as if it will slip away when in usage. The WE Knife 608 felt very well contoured to the hand, and used a tactile grip thanks to the machine made titanium lines/grooves so well machined.

Real World Testing

With reference to my review on We Knife 610, the respect for We Knives increased in my opinion. Have really good experience with We Knife 610 and I thought of using this We Knife 608 to different tests with confidence on the quality of materials used in its making and as per its technical specification.

we knife 608, we knives 608 review, we knives review 608
WE Knives WE 608I closed and scales in titanium handle

Throughout the time I carried it with me for standard EDC jobs such as opening letters, unpacking shipped products, breaking down a few small boxes from purchase deliveries, and opening some children’s figures that appear to become more protected and tide down with plastic

I must admit that I have not done any gratuitous testing, or look for to try anything beyond the basic requirements that the knife is made to use as it got 4 inches blade but it doesn’t mean it’s as strong as Fallkniven S1X because Fallkniven knives are survival knives..

Eventually, we took pleasure in the knife, though we still are not the most significant fan of the blade shape or the size for our needs. The shape does a good task with basic jobs, but the cutting edge as it might be utilized for slicing is hindered by the big Tanto sweep that funnels into a very sharp and thick point. The knife was nevertheless rather sharp. It cut well for the jobs we used it for, and appeared reputable.

As we have seen with other blades with black finishing’s, the black on the blade began to reveal wear and use. When cutting a couple of little plan boxes open, we saw this most. Though we had the ability to clean and mainly remove the rubbing marks on the blade, it appears like rub marks and possibly eventual erosion of the finish would occur with consistent use. Some individuals like that look. We however are not fans of it here.

Conclusion

The WE Knife 608 is a very competitive offering from an exceptionally outstanding knife maker. It is not inexpensive, however it does not pretend to be. You will get what you pay for. Do yourself a favor, check these guys out prior to they end up being a lot more popular and start raising prices.

WE Knife Co. have really proven themselves in our eyes. Sure, they are currently a big business, but with numerous new companies making what look like solid production pieces, it is revitalizing to understand that we can validate and test that they are the genuine offer.

The We Knives 608 has numerous design type variations ranging from color to blade type. It is not difficult to discover the kind of version that would best fit your desires and requires.

Review Fallkniven f1z, fallkniven f1z

Review Fallkniven F1z

Fallkniven F1 is official knife being used by Swedish Air Force since 1995.  It’s a knife whose manufacturing areas and core manufacturers kept on shifting.

Like in start Fallkniven F1 Knives were made Linder a German Company based in Solingen then later it its manufacturing has been shifted to SEKI, Japan.

Why? Because of VG-10 steel. As Fallkniven F1Z is made from 3 layers of laminate VG01o steel. The most interesting and useful property of VG10 steel is its ability against sidewise stress.

Fallkniven F1z Box,Fallkniven F1Z, review fallkniven f1z, fallkniven f1z, fallkniven f1z VG10, fallkniven f1z LamCos
Fallkniven F1z Box

Fallkniven F1 has many variants like Fallkniven F1 Pro, Fallkniven S1X, and Fallkniven S1XB (cos black finish) and so..! The product under review today is Fallkniven F1Z as if previously reviewed Fallkniven S1x.

Fallkniven F1z VG10 & Fallkniven F1z LamCos

When we talk about Fallkniven Knives, its Survival knives with high quality blade, superb grip at your disposal, similarly, this Fallkniven F1Z is definitely a Scandinavian classic as it also has drop point blade, its middle sized blade and a synthetic handle and who can forget about its Zytel sheath which we discuss in detail as well.

Fallkniven F1z VG10
Fallkniven F1z VG10
Fallkniven F1z LamCos
Fallkniven F1z LamCos

As per my first impression of Fallkniven F1Z Knife, I must say it’s quite balanced between its strength, functionally, cost and effectiveness which we will be doing in this review as we proceed. But first things first, let’s talk about its Technical Specifications, so we know, what to expect from it and what not? Note: F1Z LamCos is slightly bigger, heavier and expensive than F1z VG10.

Technical Specifications of Fallkniven F1z VG10

  • Blade Color         Silver/Gray
  • Blade Edge          Plain
  • Blade Length      3.80
  • Blade Material   Lam.VG10
  • Handle Color      Black
  • Handle Material Thermorun
  • Knife Type          Fixed Blade
  • Knife Weight      6.00
  • Point     Drop Point
  • Sheath Included  Yes
  • Sheath Material Zytel
  • Total Length       8.30

The Design of Fallkniven F1z VG10 & Fallkniven F1z LamCos

It’s a full tang knife just like Fallkniven F1XB, and also had beautiful convex grind with drop point blade. Beauty lies in its simplicity making it standard Swedish Air Force survival knife without a doubt. But, do not get fooled by the dead simple plain looks of this knife. It’s a fixed blade knife and its almost 6 ounces 170 grams meaning as light as holding 3 A4 printing papers in your hand. The Zytel sheath comes by default with it.

Fallkniven F1Z, review fallkniven f1z, fallkniven f1z, fallkniven f1z VG10, fallkniven f1z LamCos
Fallkniven f1z

But if you order it from Fallkniven official website, you do have the option to have leather sheath as well. Please note that there is another variant of F1Z with Lam.Cos also which is slightly higher in price as compared to F1Z VG 10 stainless steel knife we have this review on.

The Blade of Fallkniven F1z

As mentioned earlier it’s a drop point blade and drop point blades are mostly used in outdoor knives or in field. The drop point shape of its blade has proven itself and its most optimal shape to survival knives. That’s why you see, 90% of the survival knives have drop point blade.

Then comes the 3 layers of laminated steel which is not complete convex grind as an whole like Fallkniven F1XB Black, but you will find flat grind for most the part and convex grind start to get its shape near edges. Similarly, all 3 layers of steel are visible in day light.

Fallkniven F1Z spine, Fallkniven F1Z, review fallkniven f1z, fallkniven f1z, fallkniven f1z VG10, fallkniven f1z LamCos
Fallkniven F1Z spine

The knife blade has a very small choil showing a thorough thought process by Fallkniven Knives as this small choil makes sharpening it easier and makes it look better too.

The spine of F1Z has material making it strong and yes, it sparks with fire steel whenever you strike. But you won’t find jimping on its spine just like Fallkniven F1x

You must be wondering I have not talked about Blade material so far. As said, its blade is made from VG10 steel with convex grind given to this. VG10 Stainless Steel is proven from longer edge retentions and with great HRC ratings making the knife literally invincible or indestructible by human pressures.

Second best part of VG10 Steel is sharpening, you can get back razor sharp edge in no time. It’s much easier and quicker to make your blade razor sharp again after use.

Batoning Rating of F1z

I have tried and used it and after I rate it 7 out of 10 for its Batoning ability. As 3.75 or 4” in F1zCos Version both are quite small for batoning purposes but yet, the strength of the blade and retaining blade sharpness earns it 7/10 rating against batoning.

Fallkniven F1z’s handle Review

F1z is a full tang knife by design and the handle is again made from Thermorun. Thermorun is a synthetic material and which is insoluble against so many soluble agents.

Fallkniven F1z Thermorun handle
Fallkniven F1z Thermorun handle

The handles are thin, so they do not bulge up the grip, making the knife’s grip comfortable in hand. The Thermorun handle scales provides added friction (grip) when your hands are wet or even if you are wearing gloves.

The quillion at the end is perfect in size, not so big that it’s protruding out and not even small that your fingers or grips slips from it and in result you cut your hand. The quillion is perfect in size both in terms of its functionality as well as in aesthetic looks.

There is also a lanyard hole in the handle as well. Given I never used lanyard in my Fallkniven knives because they are always packed in their respective sheaths. But yes, during batoning having a lanyard for addition grip is a good thing.

Last, the tang of Fallkniven F1z sticks out from the end and servers as hammer or if you have to press or squeeze anything in wild, you can easily use it.

As a whole, the handle from its construction to its materials everything is great, you can use it anyway you want, all types of hands and almost all grips are fine while holding. I must say the handle ergonomics of this knife are better as compared to Fallkniven 1XB.

The Sheath of Fallkniven F1z

Fallkniven F1Z is for sale at most the websites with Zytel Sheath through injection molded system. Its light weight, durable and has large belt loop as well. A small lip locks the knife securely but when you shake it, you still feel the noise of blade hitting the sheath.

Fallkniven F1z with Zytel Sheath
Fallkniven F1z with Zytel Sheath

I must say it’s not that quality or craftsmanship that you see in a knife as these sheaths are mass produced or the one I received wasn’t properly checked for quality. But, there is also a hole in it at the bottom of sheath which serves as drain hole for dirt and fluids.

Fallkniven F1z Leather Sheath and Zytel Sheath
Fallkniven F1z Leather Sheath and Zytel Sheath

But, there is leather sheath available as well for this knife, I don’t have my hands on it so, it’s not right to comment on something without using it. 

Where to buy Fallkniven F1Z?

Now you know my point of view about Fallkniven F1z Knife. The final question is where to buy Fallkniven F1z fixed blade knife with lowest price, being sure that you get the best price for your knife.

I’m linking the images down under from where you can buy them brand new Fallkniven F1z VG10 and also Fallkniven F1z LamCos one at the lowest prices with fast shipping offers and also 30 days return policy.

Wharncliffe Knife & Sheepsfoot Knife

What is Wharncliffe Knife & Sheepsfoot Knife?

Wharncliffe Knife & Sheepsfoot Knife

A Sheepsfoot knife & Wharncliffe knife are both alike with just minor difference in their blade building. In Sheepsfoot blade, it has straight edge, with unsharpened little curved back, and has a false idea since the curve fulfills the straight edge. Whereas in Wharncliffe knife, its back or spin is tapered (can be curved). Thus, the only difference between two is tapering of unsharpened back or spine.

Wharncliffe Knife’s tips are more porn to break

Wharncliffe Knife & Sheepsfoot Knife

With the above stated, they are not like or in no resemblance with referral to tasks done with Tanto blades, clip point and so on.

Wharncliffe Blade & Sheepsfoot Blade Advantages

They Are Great for Carving Tasks

Have you ever been tired and had a knife on you with a stick nearby? Opportunities are, at one point you decided to sculpt that stick into a spear or other wood creation. Well, many Wharncliffe and sheepsfoot blades have a large belly part that doesn’t curve up to a pointy idea, permitting a knife with exceptional sculpting capabilities. Some Wharncliffe knives have actually recurves built into them in order to permit better slicing.

Skinning Jobs

They are terrific for skinning animals on the hunt, without damaging the animal conceal, its meat and other essential organs while cleaning up the animal.

It’s Hard to Stab Yourself

This is certainly one of the most significant sheepsfoot blade advantages. Anybody who utilizes a knife daily has probably unintentionally either stabbed or cut themselves. Well, given that there isn’t a menacing suggestion on completion of a sheepsfoot or Wharncliffe knife, terribly stabbing yourself is pretty challenging to accomplish.

Exceptional Designs of Wharncliffe knives & Sheepsfoot knives

There are some Wharncliffe knives and sheepsfoot blades that do have belly like drop point blades or clip point knives, but they are normally customized. Because of the smooth curves which are most likely to transit into knife’s suggestion, the standard knives don’t have sharp pointers.

Functions Perfectly Rescue Situations

Considering that there normally isn’t much of belly, if any at all, sheepsfoot/Wharncliffe blades are ideal for rescue/emergency situations. That’s why mostly rescue knives are from these shapes.

Rescue Situations

In an emergency situation one needs to cut a piece of clothing from somebody for another person in order to conserve life, a sheepsfoot blade might cut through the clothes without much problem. Minimizing the threat of accidental stabbing.

Wharncliffe knife and Sheepsfoot knife Disadvantages

The majority of sheepsfoot blade and Wharncliffe blade design knives do not have much of sharp point like spear point blades. If you routinely need to pierce and cut various materials, these styles of knives probably aren’t going to be the very best alternatives.

Not the greatest at cutting food Since a lot of blades curve approximately a tip, you can have your knife at a minor angle and rock the knife from tip to deal with as you are cutting food. Because you have to have the blade relatively flat versus a product in order to slice it, this is hard with a sheepsfoot or Wharncliffe.

Lots of latest Wharncliffe knives & Sheepsfoot knives have serration and other stuff on their spines and they are not useful.

Conclusion

They have lots of useful uses. Sheepsfoot blades have many job-related uses and Wharncliffe blades are great for many boating activities.

Spear Point Knife, spear point blade, what is spear point knife

Spear Point Knife

A real spear-point knife has two sharpened edges– one on the top and one on the belly or bottom. However, some blades are called spear points that have a similar shape, while really having only a single sharpened edge. These single-edged “spear point” blades are not what this topic is related to. You will come to know why as you read along.

Spear Point Blade Definition

A spear point blade resembles the needle-point blade in that benefits piercing. Its point is stronger and it contains a small “belly” that can be utilized for slicing.

Case Cutlery Besh Wedge Fixed Spear Point blade
Case Cutlery Besh Wedge Fixed Spear Point Blade

A spear point is a semi convex shaped pointed blade with sharp tip at one end and handle on another Spear point blades contain a little belly which can be utilized for some cutting and slicing applications, nevertheless, the belly is relatively small when compared to drop point and clip

. Both edges of the knife fluctuate equally to develop a point that lines up precisely with the Center of the blade. They can be single or double edged, although a lot of forms of the spear point knife featured a double-edged design.

Spear point blades are frequently used and referred to as on throwing knives.

Cold Steel Tai Pan San Mai
Cold Steel Tai Pan San Mai

Main Difference between Needle Point & Spear Point Knife

In contrast to the needle-point blade which has a weak but extremely sharp point, a spear point knife has a strength that is likewise sharp enough for piercing. With little broader as compared to needle point blade.

A spear point blade is only excellent for piercing if both edges are sharp. The reduced point is quickly manageable and works for fine pointer work.

Spear Point blades have small belly which can be used for slicing or cutting if needed but is relatively small if compared to drop point blade or clip point knife.

Advantages of Spear Point Blade

There are 3 main advantages of Spear Point Blade also known as throwing knife or at times referred as dagger. For Example Esse Knives has so many push daggers in their product rang, one of them is as under:

ESEE Tertiary Push Dagger
ESEE Tertiary Push Dagger

Sharp & Strong Tip 

Mostly spear point blades have strong tip as compared to clip point blades because the center of these blades also got good amount of material. As said earlier, I’m discussing double sided sharpened blade.

Very Controllable

Yes, Spear Points have balanced weight (material) as they are symmetrical so, if throwing you have perfectly balanced knife with both edges working smoothly

Perfect Combat Knife

Spear Blades are really good combat knives because of their ability to pierce through amours and strong sharp tip.  Double-edged spear point blades are more fit for a combat scenario than wilderness survival, in my viewpoint, because they are designed to be great for stabbing. like for example Frost Cutlery‘s fixed blade knife with SKU FTX1456BLK

Frost Cutlery Fixed Blade Black (7″)
Frost Cutlery Fixed Blade Black (7″)

Easy to sharpen

Both sides of blades can be easily sharpened using leather or stone or against metal depending upon the steel type of blade.

Disadvantages of Spear Point blade Shape

There are always two sides of a coin, similarly, Spear Point blade shape has cons too.

Bad Choice as Survival Knife

For something, a sharpened top edge can make batoning beside impossible, which is often a vital use of a survival knives.

What is Batoning?

Batoning is a technique for splitting wood using a knife. It includes placing your knife against the wood, then striking the back of the knife with a baton (typically a wooden stick). This is a useful method to cut wood that would otherwise require a hatchet or axe.

Small Cutting Edge (Belly)

As Spear Point blades are semi -convex type in shape, having very small or marginal belly which is not efficient for chopping food items.

You cannot slice food or open an envelope or normal EDC tasks with a Spear Point Blade.

But it’s not impossible to slice as with other blades like HawkBill blades or Tanto blades, where if you try to peel an apple, the juice from it fills your hands.

Conclusion

A spear point knife is a great choice for the knife enthusiast who is looking for an excellent balance between slicing and piercing capability. It integrates the sharp point of a daggers with the strength of a drop point blade, while keeping some of the “belly” that is utilized for slicing.

There are many brands which offer Spear Point knives like, Spyderco Knives, Browning Knives, Kershaw Knives, Cold Steel Knives, even United Cutlery & Frost Cutlery has good variety of throwing Knives.  In general, it is a terrific hybrid blade style that is very practical.

Clip point knives, Clip point knife

What is clip point Knife

The clip point knife is one of the 3rd most common knife blade shapes chosen by people the other two are Spear Point knives & Drop Point blades.  Clip point blades have the look of having the forward 1/3rd of the blade “clipped” off. The clip itself can be straight or concave

If you’re looking for an excellent versatile blade, then you’ve come to the right location. A clip point (along with a drop point) is among the most popular blade shapes in use today. The most recognizable knife that includes a clip point is the Bowie knife, but it is also popular on many penknife and fixed blade knives.

Gerber Gator, Gerber Knives' Gerber Gator Clip point Knife in Hand
Gerber Knives’ Gerber Gator Clip point Knife in Hand

More details & customizations on clip point knife

Traditionally, the spinal column or unsharpened edge of the knife begins at the hilt and continues to a point in between one third to one 4th of the blade length. The blade spinal column then tapers in density in either a straight line or a concave to the blade’s point, which may be located above, below, or in line with the main axis of the blade.

The thinned incorrect edge of the clip may be sharpened to form a true second cutting edge. If the incorrect edge is honed it increases the blade’s efficiency in piercing.

Clip point Vs Drop Point

As shown in the picture below, there is a clear difference between a clip point and a drop point blade, as clip point knives has a cut out on the end making a sharp point where as drop point blade has almost long design, simple and straight which people normally associate with knives. Both knives in the following pictures are from same manufacturer Gerber Knives.

Clip point Knife Vs Drop Point Knife
Clip point Knife Vs Drop Point Knife

Advantages of the Clip Point

Controllable

Clip Point knives are very controllable because of sharp point tip. Just like Marbles Folding Bowie Knife

Marbles Folding Bowie Knife Review SKU MR101 in hands

Easy to sharpen

They can be easily sharpened because of its design and one does not need special practice or tools to sharp as we need for Hawksbill knives Or Tanto Knives.

Good for piercing

Due to sharp pointed tip, they can easily pierce through different materials. They are as good as Tanto knives and Reverse Tanto knives as well.

Slicing

Plenty of cutting edge (“belly”) for slicing, the size of knife varies but the shape has belly, which makes easier for chopping or slicing food items like apples, bread etc.

Given a big bowie knife is great for chopping woods chips for starter fires.

Disadvantages of the Clip Point

Tip Point is narrow and weak

This is only main point where this shape lacks as compared to tanto or reverse tanto knives.  The amount of material is low as compared to its spin and in its belly, making the TIP more thinner and pointer which is a tradeoff between piercing and chiseling.

Rough Ryder Medium Clip Point Hunter
Rough Ryder Medium Clip Point Hunter a perfect example of Clip point blade

Conclusion

The back (unsharpened) edge of the knife runs directly from the deal with and stops about midway up the blade. It continues and turns to the point of the knife. This “cut-out” area can be curved or straight, and is referred to as the “clip”, which is how this shape got its name. If the part of the knife from the spine to the point has actually literally been clipped off, clip point knives look as.

The point that is developed by this clip is reduced, which supplies more control when using the blade. Because the tip is easy to control, sharp and thinner at the spinal column, a clip point blade lends itself to quicker stabbing with less drag throughout insertion and faster withdrawal.

In many cases, the back edge of the clip point is honed to make a 2nd edge, which improves the function of the pointer even more.

Clip point blades also include a big “stubborn belly” area that is perfect for slicing.

The only genuine downside of the clip point blade is its relatively narrow tip. Due to the fact that it is narrow and so sharp, it has a propensity to be weak and can break fairly quickly.

By picking a clip point, you will be among the many of knife enthusiasts who own a great all-purpose blade that can be used in numerous situations, anticipated or unanticipated.

Tanto Knives Guide

Tanto knives

In this article we will be discussing what are tanto knives for? Uses of tanto knives. Advantages of tanto knives, where to use tanto knife and much more.

In some cases, you do not want a versatile knife. You want a knife that does one thing and does that one thing actually well. If you’re searching for a knife that stands out at piercing difficult materials, then the tanto blade is what you’re searching for.

There are so many tanto knives in market from famous brands like, Browning Knives, Cold Steel Knives, Case Cutlery, Marbles Knives, TOPS Knives and many more..!

Initially created for armor piercing, the tanto blade was popularized by Cold Steel and is similar in style to Japanese long and short swords.

What is a tanto Knife?

The tanto knife has a peak with a flat grind, causing a very strong point that is best for stabbing into difficult materials. The thick point of the tanto blade includes a great deal of metal near the pointer, so it has the ability to take in the impact from duplicated piercing that would cause most other knives to break.
