If you’re looking for a clean and functional knife to kick off the new year, the CIVIVI Chronic is a great way to start. It features a flipper blade built into a clean and minimal handle whose aesthetics are matched by its practicality in use. The Chronic has all the bells and whistles of a more expensive everyday carry knife for a fraction of the cost, and it deserves your attention.

The most striking part of the Chronic is the razor-sharp 3.22" clip point blade. Its hollow grind and 9Cr18MoV stainless steel composition make for a sharp 58-60 HRC knife that’seasy to maintain, especially on a nice whetstone. Deployment of the blade is easy, with an ambidextrous flipper index tab and ball bearings in the pivot that allow a smooth, one-handed action. A secure liner lock holds the blade in place during use.

The handle on the Chronic is nice and clean, with a reversible tip-up deep-carry pocket clip that lets it slide right out of sight in your pockets. But unlike other minimal knives that have slippery smooth metal handles, the Chronic features grippy but not overly tactical G10 scaling that allows for finer control especially if your hands are wet.

With such a rich feature set and clean aesthetic styling, you might expect to pay a pretty penny for a knife like this, but CIVIVI placed the Chronic at an accessible price point, making this a great knife to pick whether you’re new to EDC or just looking for something new this year.

I took a risk on a Civivi Praxis, not knowing anything about the company. I am pretty happy with the purchase-- Civivi seems to offer solid quality and a high level of attention to detail for a very affordable price. It also appears that their product offering is rapidly expanding. I predict we will see many Civivi knives on this forum in the future.

I won't be buying anymore Chinese products unless there is absolutely no alternative. Fortunately there are countless other options when it comes to knives.

Need some heads up for some affordable and truly urban knives for the 21st Century. A knife with a blade over 3 inches won't make the cut.
